Maybe you’ll cross paths with friends on their way to the media lounge, the party room or the spa. It’s a new experience around every corner—so seize the possibilities.
Good times make good neighbours.
From the initial planning stages, the vision for Q West has always been to leverage smart design and planning to create a unique community living experience. Today this vision is embodied by Abbey Court, the historical building at the heart of Q West and the essence of its offering to residents and guests. The development team drew inspiration from the stately halls of the former convent’s central building—then reinvented them for a new kind of congregation.
Abbey Court was made to bring people together for good times: for sumptuous food, or cocktails and conversation; for coffee on the terraces, a walk in the garden courtyard, or browsing in the shops. This multi-level, multi-use building is a new kind of public space—one designed to be the center of the action and a new destination for all kinds of enjoyment in all four seasons.
Just one look will convince you: suites at Q West are as stylish as you are.
At Q West, elegance and functionality combine in the highest quality features and finishes. Spectacular windows, sumptuous baths, gourmet kitchens: they’re all part of the package.
