Bois-Franc has managed the tour de force of recreating a warm, homey atmosphere among the communities having a history and a soul.
Living in Bois-Franc is not only having a well-built home, but also benefiting from a truly distinctive living environment, with its squares, piazzas and piazettas, its parks, lakes and its Grand-Place, its merchants, daycare centres and, of course, its residents!
Many Green and Blue Spaces
Nature and Greenery
Bois-Franc is an outstanding place designed to recreate Mother Nature's finest, in an urban environment. Residents appreciate the fact that a good part of the territory is preserved for green and blue spaces. Along the streets, thousands of mature trees have been planted. Such controlled and protected development contributes toward making Bois-Franc a genuine green community.
On Bois-Franc territory, there are a number of waterways expertly spread out and given evocative names: Bassin de la Brunante, Bassin des Outardes, Bassin des Nations, Bassin de l’Aube! They attract many bird species that come here to bathe or quench their thirst; aquatic vegetation is gradually growing here as well; the surface of the water—whether calm or agitated—constantly and alternately reflects either the lights or shadows of the days and nights. Many residents highly appreciate these very special features—the charms of the ponds near the commercial and business world.
A Well-Devised and Well-Designed Development
Thanks to its innovative and imaginative master plan, BOIS-FRANC offers an exclusive environment, where nature and housing perfectly blend in harmony. Astutely spread out, green spaces, bodies of water and a bicycle path create a living environment that fulfills everyone's aspirations. Residents may relax, as they please, in peace and quiet, or merely savour the charms of the area.
All streets in the Bois-Franc development lead to La Grand-Place, which doubles as the commerce area for residents of Bois-Franc. Accessible daily by foot and by car, it offers residents food services as well as convenience stores. Parking facilities are located nearby, although every effort has been made to make these as visually unobtrusive as possible.
Here, you can stroll, sit, chat with neighbours and exchange ideas. In short, this is where streets and people converge, because Bois-Franc offers A NEW QUALITY OF CITY LIVING!
Electrical Underground Network
Bois-Franc can offer its residents state-of-the-art technology that is at once respectful of their quality of life and environmentally friendly. Furthermore, the fact that all electrical wiring is under ground greatly improves visual impact as well as reliability of the network.
