Village Center

The Village Center at Pointe-Marie will provide a diverse and engaging array of essentials and much more, offering dining, boutique shopping, entertainment, gathering, lodging, residences, and select services – all within a short walk from all neighborhoods and districts and equally accessible on foot or by automobile.

The Village Center - from its first phase to its last - will become a primary amenity and attraction for residents, guests, visitors, day visitors, investors and potential purchasers.
