LAVAL, September 3, 2020 – Partners MONTONI, Groupe Sélection and the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ are pleased to announce that the professional services firm Deloitte will be a tenant in Espace Montmorency, the largest mixed-use development project ever built in Laval. Deloitte’s 90 Laval employees will begin moving in early 2023. Deloitte’s new Laval offices will be located in Espace Montmorency’s Tower 2 located at the corner of Jacques-Tétreault and Lucien-Paiement streets. As a premier tenant, the company will have its logo installed on the building facade, with visibility from highway 15. Deloitte joins Groupe Sélection and Montoni, which will both be transferring their head offices as soon as the project is completed in summer 2022. Espace Montmorency offers 332,000 square feet of rental office space. Like Deloitte’s employees, future business tenants will enjoy direct underground access to the building from the Montmorency metro station, a strategic location near to Place Bell, and commuting against rush hour traffic. By offering a stimulating work ecosystem with public spaces conducive to collaboration while complying with public health and social measures, Espace Montmorency brings together an impressive array of services such as an urban spa, a hotel and a wide choice of first-rate restaurants, including chains opening for the first time in Québec.
Moreover, in a bid to deliver a highly personalized concierge service, Espace Montmorency will offer tenants a OneFlow-type mobile application specially adapted and integrated into its design, providing a unique experience in managing common areas for meetings, parking spaces, food orders and restaurant reservations.
“We’re very pleased to welcome a premier tenant like Deloitte. This confirms the drawing power of this large-scale, innovative project in Laval, a centrepiece of the new downtown. Deloitte will benefit from Espace Montmorency’s multifunctional design and choice location near major arteries, public transportation and knowledge institutions. I’m proud of the concept we developed with our partners for this project, which is following a strict schedule that aims to deliver the 4 towers in spring 2022.”
– Dario Montoni, President
“We are very pleased to offer our employees in the Laval office modern and futuristic workspaces that will be located in the heart of a bustling business area where citizens are enthusiastically looking to build a better community. This new bright, flexible and state-of-the-art work environment is an increased investment in our people, which will allow them not only to continue to excel in their work, but also to put their unique skills to use, harness their strengths, and nurture a sense of belonging to a community. Our redefined approach to today's workplace will undoubtedly strengthen our privileged business position in the Laval market.”
