Our top 5 reasons that make the new downtown Longueuil the most innovative neighbourhood!
Longueuil is on the verge of becoming the most sought-after area of Greater Montreal. With its new downtown district, completely redesigned and redeveloped, Longueuil is now establishing itself as an important investment sector for discerning real estate buyers looking for a privileged lifestyle, in the heart of an integrated environment.
You will find an innovative urban centre where businesses, arts & culture, knowledge, green transport and nature come together as one.
A transit-oriented development (TOD)
The new downtown Longueuil, a major economic, residential and cultural hub, will offer the perfect living environment with its human-centred design of urban spaces. The project was carried out according to the highest standards of TOD principles. Thanks to its diversified public transport offer, the redesigned downtown area will become one of the best living environments in North America.
Erected at the foot of the Jacques Cartier Bridge, in an active living environment, the new downtown Longueuil represents a major investment of over 3 billion dollars.
Public transport: an attractive option
With Place Charles-Le Moyne at its centre, the most important intermodal terminus in Quebec, the new downtown Longueuil is a strategic hub, in the heart of the metropolitan area, and a merge point between the South Shore and the island of Montreal.
Metro, tram, bus, bike and more
Do you work in the city? Commuting between work and home couldn’t be easier! The Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station is right here. You can reach downtown Montreal in just 9 minutes!
Furthermore, the Yellow Line will be extended, adding a new metro station in the Longue-Rive borough and a tramway that will connect to the Panama REM station.
Do you work on the South Shore? You will benefit from the LÉEO tramway project which will connect to the surrounding municipalities and a network of 70 bus lines to get you where you need to be.
Do you prefer active transportation? The new downtown Longueuil will have a large and highly connected network of pedestrian and cycling routes.
And those who still prefer driving their car will enjoy easy access to main highways, routes 132 and 134, and the Jacques Cartier Bridge.
A privileged urban lifestyle
Your favourite shops close by
Establishing itself as the 3rd largest agglomeration in Quebec, Longueuil’s new downtown core brings together more than 13,000 businesses that generate more than 170,000 jobs. The agri-food and aerospace industries play a key role in the local economy. This booming area is an economic development lever with major spinoffs.
A place of knowledge and learning
The Greater Longueuil area is home to Université de Sherbrooke’s campus as well as Cégep Édouard-Montpetit and Champlain College so students can thrive in an environment that promotes active learning.
A growing economic sector
Anchored in the urban lifestyle sought after by today’s city dwellers, this lively neighbourhood will bring together local shops, two hotels, cafes and merchants, and provide an unparalleled culinary offer to residents, workers and visitors.
Nature all around
Privileged access to the St. Lawrence River
The new downtown Longueuil will be bordered by a 35-hectare waterfront park. The location is one of the last riverside sites available in the Montreal area with about 4.5 kilometres of riverside parkland. You will find 80 kilometres of cycling paths. The large park will offer a host of recreational activities such as kayaking, fishing, walking and cross-country skiing. A marina will also accommodate residents, tourists and boaters.
Parks provide important respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. They provide us with the green, oxygen-giving, rejuvenating influence of nature. Luckily, the new downtown Longueuil will benefit from a vast municipal park spanning 4,000 square metres, ideal for relaxing and reconnecting with nature.
