A new green mini-city and $250-million development will be built in Montreal’s east-end.
Technopôle Angus, which includes 895,000 sq. ft. of office, commercial, residential, and green space, is under development across from Parc Jean-Duceppe in the borough of Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie.
Nearly 25% of Technopôle Angus will be public green spaces, including a wide tree-lined pedestrian street, an urban woodland, two public squares with shops and services, and greenbelts to preserve biodiversity.
The entire development will be constructed to be sustainable and energy efficient. According to Technopôle Angus, an energy loop for heat exchange between buildings will reduce building energy consumption by 40% and greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) by 26%.
Public facilities will also be designed so that 95% of rainfall can be stored and filtered over the course of a year on the site, so water will not affect the municipal system.
The development will include:
The construction of the green residential and business development will begin this spring.
