MONTREAL – A $1 billion private project in Brossard, on Montreal’s South Shore, is slated to be built on the north-east corner of Highways 10 and 30.
That’s just a stone’s throw away from the dix30 outdoor mall.
The proposed development will include 2,000 housing units, a hotel, a convention centre and plenty of green space for residents and visitors.
Pierre Jetté, president of Brossard’s consultative committee on urban development, told Global News that the project will bring significant employment opportunities and environmental benefits to the region.
A light rail system is being researched by the Caisse de Dépot, which could possibly bring passengers from Montreal to Brossard and back.
The question is, how will Montreal compete to prevent people from leaving the city?
As private investment increases outside the downtown core, this is an issue that will be of increasing importance to Montrealers in the coming years.
