Montreal’s Technopole Angus designated LEED v4 Platinum

MONTREAL — The Societe de developpement Angus has announced that the development plan for Montreal’s Technopole Angus mixed-use project has obtained LEED v4 Platinum certification for sustainable neighbourhood design.

The urban renewal project was designed by Provencher_Roy in collaboration with NIP Paysage, Vinci Consultants and Pageau Morel associes as part of an integrated design process begun in 2012, said a recent release.

The 37,000-square-metre neighbourhood is being developed as a hub of innovation and sustainability on a brownfield site on the Island of Montreal at an estimated total cost $250 million.

The project will include:

  • 360 residential units, 80 per cent of which will be social and affordable housing
  • 45,000 square metres of office space with potential employment for 1,500 workers
  • 3,000 square metres of commercial space
  • an elementary school and two new public daycare centres
  • 550 underground parking spaces
  • public spaces such as a pedestrian street, urban maple forest, public squares and greenbelts.

Sustainability features include an energy loop targeted to be 40 per cent more efficient than the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010 and a collection system that reuses 95 per cent of rainwater.

Traffic within the site is free of automobiles and fully pedestrianized, noted the release.
