MONTREAL, June 12, 2015 – Devimco Immobilier Inc. and Immobilier Carbonleo Inc. applaud the adoption by the National Assembly of Quebec of the Act to allow the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ) to carry out infrastructure projects.
With a united voice, the two companies wish to offer their full cooperation to participate in the establishment of a Light Rail Transit (LRT), a new mode of public transport that they favour to connect Montreal and the South Shore via the new Champlain Bridge. A public transport project on the new Champlain Bridge is one of the major infrastructure projects identified by the CDPQ.
Although conditions have yet to be defined, the companies’ participation could be in a financial manner.
In the Brossard region, the LRT would have stations where Devimco and Carbonleo have plans for a new project: the redevelopment of Quartier DIX30™.
For the two companies, such infrastructure would create significant positive impacts for Brossard’s residents by shortening commute times to downtown Montreal, and by decreasing traffic during rush hours. It would allow a more harmonious Town Oriented Development (TOD) of urban centers identified in Brossard, in the Metropolitan Land Use and Development Plan (PMAD), adopted by the member municipalities of the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM).
