“Real estate sustainable development”

Quebec’s real estate market is booming! The Quebecers witness the market skyrocket along with the construction of numerous of new projects in Downtown and other regions in Greater Montreal. However, how to reduce pollution during construction is the key criteria for real estate’s sustainable development

Mr. Jean-Louis presented that the usage of Eco-friendly materials when building homes will be an effective method to protect our environment.

The city councilor of Saint Laurent, Mr. Francesco Miele believe that the focus of urban planning should shift from the heart of Montreal to the surrounding areas of Montreal.

The total population makes a huge jump from 74,000 to 104,000 over the years. Ville Saint Laurent becomes one of the most sought-after regions in Greater Montreal in terms of education, public services, environment, and security.
