Unveiling a special payment plan developed in association with mortgage broker Regal Group International to smooth the approval process, developer G&G Business Developments announced a
unique, smart way of financing an Aston Martin Residence. The program allows clients to finance their luxury condo from day one, offering greater freedom to manage their portfolios.

The plan allows the buyer to make equal, fixed monthly installments for the term of the loan, post the initial payment. Additionally, there is no prepayment penalty for the loan term, and clients can cancel or change their lender without any penalties as well. However, additional financing costs and commitment fees are not part of the plan and still remain the buyer’s responsibility.

This 66-story ultra-luxury condo tower rises along Downtown’s waterfront, featuring a unique wind-sail design. Home to 391 luxury residences, its common areas are set to feature signature Aston Martin touches. Additionally, residents will have access to the only deep-water superyacht marina in Downtown, an infinity pool, spa, a sky lounge, two cinemas, an art gallery, barber station, kids’ room, optional butler service, and more.

Elysee is expected to get its TCO by the end of September. The 100-condo, 57-story, waterfront tower comes designed by Aquitectonica and features interiors by Jean-Louise Denoit.
