With 1 million square feet remaining to be developed at Technopôle Angus, we are building a new neighbourhood that attracts and retains business, maximize users’ quality of life and has a positive environmental impact.
Eco-friendly buildings will be built on the land at the heart of Technopôle Angus—the Central Island circumscribed by William-Tremblay, Augustin Frigon, Mont-Royal and Molson streets. The project is designed to integrate into its environment, while adding density and contributing vibrancy.
The space will be treated like an urban village. Bisected by a main street shared by cyclists, pedestrians and taxis alike, the area will also feature side streets for easy access to the entire site.
Over 450,000 square feet will be dedicated to flexible office space for businesses of all sectors. Some 20 local enterprises—cafés, restaurants, an ice cream shop, florist, supermarket, etc.—will occupy the main floor of the buildings lining both sides of the main street and around the four public squares. In addition, 400 condo units will go up around Parc Jean Duceppe and will be within reach of middle-income families. Our aim is to obtain LEED-ND PLATINUM certification for the overall project.
Work is already under way, with development of the site’s first public square, set back from Molson and Rachel streets. Place Léopold Beaulieu was officially opened in fall 2015 and boasts three new restaurants along its edges: Pizzeria Caldo, Hoogan & Beaufort and artisanal bakery Mamie Clafoutis.
