The construction of Carré Saint-Laurent is almost finished

The Société de développement Angus is finalizing the construction of the Carré Saint-Laurent, a mixed-use development that revitalize the intersection of Montréal’s two traditional main streets, Saint-Laurent and Sainte-Catherine.

The new developement is located at the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles and bordered by Rue Sainte-Catherine to the north, Monument-National theatre to the south, Boulevard Saint-Laurent to the east and Rue Clark to the west. With a total area of approximately 25,000m2, Carré Saint-Laurent will be home to offices, businesses, and cultural organizations. The $115 million project features a 15-metre tall retail podium that stretches from the Monument-National to Rue Sainte-Catherine, framing the Café Cléopâtre.

The Central

In summer 2019, the Central , a unique public market for food and related products, will set up shop on the ground floor of the complex. Developed by the Société de développement Angus (SDA), the market will gather over thirty independant merchants in a clearly defined space showcasing the very best in Montréal cuisine.

The entire southern cluster, some 14,000 m2 spread over the top 8 floors, will be occupied by Quebec government offices. The MEM (Mémoire des Montréalais Museum) will occupied part of the north side of the building. An underground parking garage will feature space equipped with electric vehicule charging stations and bike parking spots.

The entire development is being planned to achieve LEED-CS certification, a reflection of Société de développement Angus’s commitment to sustainable development. Carré Saint-Laurent has won the 2014 Prix Projet Vert Award from Voir vert-Le Portail du bâtiment durable au Québec, in recognition of outstanding environmental performance.

SDA’s partners for this project are Provencher_Roy (architects), Pomerleau (general contractor), SNC-Lavalin (structural and civil engineering), and SMI-Enerpro (mechanical and electrical). The Carré Saint-Laurent development is made possible by Fonds Immobilier Angus (FIA), a fund established by Fondaction in partnership with SDA.
