Construction begins on $450M mixed-use Espace Montmorency project in Montreal suburb of Laval
LAVAL, Que.—Construction is underway on a major mixed-use building project in the Montreal suburb of Laval.
Montoni Group and Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ, the driving forces behind the project, said June 11 crews have started work on a $450 million development known as Espace Montmorency. Construction on the four-tower complex, which uses a stacked block design, will take place in three stages and is scheduled to take about four years.
Located across Rue Lucien-Paiement from the Montmorency metro station, the 1.3 million sq. ft. development includes residential, office and commercial space, as well as an 180-room hotel. The four towers will range in size from 5 to 18 storeys.
Along with Montoni and Fonds de solidarité FTQ, Groupe Sélection recently joined the project to take on the development and construction of the residential portion of the job. The team is shooting for a LEED Gold certification with Espace Montmorency.
Construction will start this year on the site foundations and underground parking level, as well as a tunnel connection to the adjacent Metro station. Work on the two residential towers will follow in phase two, before the office and hotel towers are erected in the final stage of work.
Crews are scheduled to complete construction on the four interconnected buildings by 2022.
