Discover the Saint-Laurent neighbourhood.
Looking for green spaces and rental properties? You can choose from several residential neighborhoods: Cosmos in the southeast of Laurentian territory, Village Montpellier near the Montpellier train station. Do you prefer single-family homes or luxury condos? The green squares of Bois-Franc, located on the former Cartierville airport grounds, offer modern condos and community pools. The Bois-Franc real estate project in Saint-Laurent focuses on quality of life, notably with its water features, the fountain and services of La Grande-Place, and the shops and terraces of Faubourg Bois-Franc, at the corner of Henri-Bourassa and Wilfrid-Reid boulevards. Vieux Saint Laurent has the advantage of beautiful duplexes with variable rents. It is the borough’s small historic downtown, remarkable for its architectural heritage and its institutions: the Cégep Saint-Laurent, Vanier College, the Saint-Laurent Art Museum, the library, the post office, the fire station and the many businesses. The Chameran district is home to a large Lebanese community, which has earned it the nickname “Little Beirut”.
Green spaces are everywhere. Discover Hartenstein Park with its public pool and tennis courts; Saint-Laurent Park with its baseball field, outdoor pool and skating rink in winter; Marcel-Laurin Park with its athletic track, skate park and dog park; and Du Bois-Franc Park with its water features and basketball court! A must for residents who love the outdoors and for active children! Is it the green side of the borough that attracted Lufa Farms? In any case, the urban agriculture company and its huge greenhouse of fruits and vegetables has taken root on Thimens Boulevard!
The Technoparc project was born in Saint-Laurent in 1987 – the first science park in Canada – and became Technoparc Montréal in 2008. Located at the intersection of Highways 40 and 13, it now brings together more than one hundred innovative companies specializing in aeronautics, pharmaceuticals and clean energy. Some 6,000 people work there. This scientific and technological business park has an international vocation, focusing as much on scientific research as on commercial development. Saint-Laurent is thus the ideal place to reconcile work and life. It is also close to the Université de Montréal campus, as well as to the Cégep de Saint-Laurent and Vanier College. And to get out of the neighborhood, residents can count on commuter trains: Montréal-Deux-Montagnes, Montpellier, Du Ruisseau and Bois-Franc.
