Longueuil , Québec
Pointe-de-Longueuil is a Canada Lands Company redevelopment project that promises to play a major role in the revitalization of the waterfront area of the City of Longueuil, located directly across the St. Lawrence River from Montréal.
This prestigious property features spectacular views and sits adjacent to the city’s downtown core and subway node, making it an exciting development opportunity. The property totals just over 57 acres (23.1 hectares) and is zoned for both commercial and residential use.
The Pointe-de-Longueuil site has an industrial history. Four buildings existed on the site when the Company acquired the property. One of the buildings was declared unsafe and was demolished in 2013. The Canada Lands Company is responsible for the maintenance and management of the remaining three buildings, which are occupied by a total of eleven different tenants. The vacant land at the Pointe is coveted by several summer event organizers and local film producers. Spectators come in large numbers, filling the entire parking lot for evening fireworks displays.
Based on stakeholder feedback, Canada Lands Company has developed a vision for the site that balances residential and commercial uses, while also giving local residents access to new parks and recreational spaces. The Canada Lands Company, in collaboration with Ville de Longueuil, has completed a comprehensive consultation process and the plan is now before the City for final approval. CLC has partnered with the Ville de Longueuil in the process of developing the municipality’s master plan, called “Longueuil Centre-Ville 2035.” The overall plan includes 57 acres (23 hectares), of which 50% will be dedicated to green space. This collaborative effort will provide for a reinvigorated downtown, a new waterfront, and better access for vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians within this formerly underutilized site. New public transportation will also play an important role in planning. The Company will explore social housing opportunities, working with local providers to offer a mix of social and affordable housing, as part of the municipal planning process.
Members of the public are invited to come learn about and comment on the Longueuil 2035 vision at a series of events to be held in March.
