De la Commune Service Yard is a 0.9 ha site to redevelop located in the Cité du Multimédia adjacent to the west end of Vieux‐Montréal. This site enjoys exceptional exposure, being located at the entrance to the city via the Bonaventure highway. The Cité du Multimédia is a neighbourhood located between Vieux Montréal, Griffintown and downtown Montréal. The neighborhood is the result of a vast real‐estate project launched by the Québec government in the late 1990s which redeveloped abandoned nineteenth‐century industrial buildings into a business cluster for information technology companies.
This site consists in a 9 382,2 m² lot, currently occupied by a satellite service yard. It enjoys exceptional exposure, being located at the entrance to the city via the Bonaventure highway. It also benefits from a good accessibility by public transit, with two metro stations located less than 1.2 km away and three bus lines running in the area. The site is linked to Montréal’s bike path network as well.
The site proposes an attractive opportunity for an open program, including the possibility to develop a mixed-use project (allowed uses are residential, commercial, industrial and institutional ones).
