Place Charles-Le Moyne sector – PCL
As the site of the Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station, this sector, which forms the heart of downtown Longueuil, is home to a variety of activities that give it its metropolitan flair.
A major real estate develpment project of Devimco in the downtown area, valued at nearly $ 500 million, calls for the creation of nearly 1,200 housing units as well as various commercial spaces, and will make the Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station universally accessible.
The Longue-Rive sector stands out for its prestigious residential high-rise building featuring public galleries on a human scale. With a stunning view of the St. Lawrence River and downtown Montréal, Longue-Rive is the site of the last remaining vast riverside spaces still available for development in the Greater Montréal area.
A huge 35-hectare riverside park will enhance this area for the benefit of the entire population of Longueuil.
Place Longueuil sector
The redevelopment and consolidation of this sector will revitalize this strategic district, which is located between Place Charles-Le Moyne and the heritage site. Ground-level developments will encourage public green spaces, consolidate local shops and services, and promote the construction of residential buildings.
The College sector offers a living environment made up predominantly of institutional and office spaces. Situated at the south end of the Jacques-Cartier Bridge, the area is mainly comprised of the Champlain College campus and the land adjacent to boulevard La Fayette.
Located around the Jacques-Cartier Bridge easement and the boulevard Taschereau interchange, the Bridge sector will be completely revamped to feature an iconic gateway to the South Shore, new office buildings, and a redesigned boulevard Saint-Laurent.
