Newsletter January 2021

 Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our January 2021 Newsletter.

Construction Financing

We are pleased to announce that we recently received valuable support from the three levels of government, which enabled Rendez-Vous Estates to meet major construction financing conditions. We are very confident we will have shovel in the ground by Spring 2021. Occupancy will be ready by Spring/Summer 2022.

Our Project Management team is in the process of confirming and finalizing all the details of the project before we proceed to signing the financing and construction contracts. This may take a few weeks.

Sign up Now!

A crucial financing condition imposed on our Steering Committee is to have 26 suites sold before construction can proceed. Sales are currently short by a few suites. You can make the difference by signing up now rather than later. Your commitment today will ensure Rendez-Vous Estates proceeds as scheduled. You can make a difference. Join now and select your suite. First time occupant means you have a choice of suites and selected finish colors. As a contributor to our success, your name will be permanently displayed as a “Pioneer” and receive one month free rent. Please phone me @ 204 961-1442 or contact any committee member to discuss further.

My Personal Testimony – Leo & Suzanne Desmarais

“Suzanne and I are fully committed and excited to be part of Rendez-VousEstates, a brand new 55 plus residential complex in Lorette. Our deposit put us on the waiting list and now we plan to purchase our $110,000 Share as soon as we can. A Co-op Share will give us access to our beautifully designed suite and building, reside within view of the Seine River in the center of Lorette, live in an amazing community with people our own age, and indulge in a life style filled with endless community activities and memories. The building features important to us are quality, comfort, community, affordability, and a carefree lifestyle. We look forward to our retirement years with our old and new friends @ Rendez-vous Estates. Please join us.”

Quality Designed Building

Rendez-Vous Estates is a Power Smart designated building. This means comfort living, energy savings and quality features.

Affordability – Rendez-Vous Estates is the only not-for-profit 55+ residential living in Lorette.

As a residential co-op, we are not tenants, but proud members with an opportunity to make a difference. Affordability means your occupancy cost is structured on true expenditures as a voting member.
