High demand

With a 1.45 million ft2 increase in occupied office space since 2012, the market on the South Shore has grown at an annual rate of 6.8%, the highest in the region of Montreal (Aviseo, 2020).


Growth rate

The region also stands out due to its growth in total office space inventory. Relatively speaking, the South Shore has had the highest growth rate in office space inventory since 2012, ranking before the West Island of Montreal and Laval (Aviseo, 2020).

The highest growth in office space inventory


The construction of the Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM) light rail network is scheduled to be completed in 2022 and has attracted residential and commercial real estate projects around the 3 new stations in Brossard.

  • 26 stations / 67 km
  • Service available 20 hrs/day every 2.5 minutes
  • Twice as many users transported each day compared to the current service

The Léeo electric tramway project will run along Taschereau Boulevard, passing by the Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station and ending at Cégep Édouard-Montpetit. The project could bring 14,000 jobs and 7 million ft2 of office space to the agglomeration.
