LAVAL, QUE. — Groupe Montoni and its development partners have announced new milestones for their Espace Montmorency project in Laval, Que. with new residential tenants and a roster of businesses and other organizations also signing on as tenants.
Valued at more than $450 million, Espace Montmorency is a mixed-use urban development consisting of four towers.
The first project in Quebec to be certified LEED v4 Gold ND (Neighbourhood Development) and aiming for LEED Platinum and Gold certification, the project provides direct access to Montmorency Metro station. It is located east of Autoroute des Laurentides, between Du Souvenir and De la Concorde West boulevards, next to Place Bell.
Montoni’s partners are Groupe Selection, Fonds immobilier de solidarite FTQ and Montez Corporation, with master designs by Sid Lee Architecture.
Land uses will include 1.3 million square feet of rental space and 500,000 square feet of office and commercial space. Among the four towers will be two for residential, one for office and the fourth assigned as a Courtyard by Marriott Hotel. There will be over 700 residential units.
Montoni has announced the first residential tenants started moving into two of the three concept rental residences, Yimby and Hoop, at the beginning of June. The third concept building, Waltz, opened its doors on July 1.
Deloitte, Groupe Montoni and Groupe Selection have previously been announced as tenants and they will be joined by College Montmorency, Scotiabank and DHC Avocats.
Features and amenities of the office space include an eighth floor reserved for collaborative work, with coworking space, meeting rooms available by reservation and terraces that can be used by all tenants.
The project incorporates an energy loop with exchange and recovery of energy that enables a 50 per cent reduction in energy costs and an 80 per cent reduction in GHG emissions.
The project’s concierge service includes remote door unlocking and automatic elevator control, dynamic predictive parking, room reservations, restaurant and service ordering, smart lockers, environmental control and security notifications.
“While the return to the office in hybrid mode is essential for team motivation, talent retention and attraction, Espace Montmorency, with its shops and numerous restaurants, offers a dynamic environment of incomparable quality that is fully adapted to the new reality of the working world,” stated Groupe Montoni president Dario Montoni in a release.
“College Montmorency, Scotiabank and DHC Avocats will benefit from the expertise that we have developed in the design of post-pandemic offices and that we are providing for our clients.”
