LAVAL, Que. — Montoni, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ and Montez Corporation, the partners in the Espace Montmorency development, have announced the opening of the new Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Laval, Que. Located at 500 rue Lucien-Paiement, the hotel features 188 guestrooms on 10 floors, a signature restaurant and an open-air bar.

This $45-million hotel project is backed by a group of investors consisting of MONTONI, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ, Cogir and Urgo Hotels & Resorts Canada, which will also manage the hotel. The latter is the Canadian subsidiary of HHM Hotels, internationally renowned for its expertise and high-quality administration.

Espace Montmorency is notable for its green design, which adheres to the most stringent sustainability standards, an increasingly important selection criterion for small businesses and large corporations — both Quebec-based and international — that are adopting carbon-neutrality targets.

The Courtyard by Marriott Montreal Laval, connected directly to Montmorency metro station by an underground tunnel, meets the growing demand of business clientele and will become a destination of choice for corporate clients looking to organize conventions and events in Laval, Que. and seeking business-travel accommodations.

Hotel guests have access to all services offered in the Espace Montmorency complex, as well as a business centre for meetings, individual work spaces, reception halls, a restaurant, open-air bar and exclusive terraces, 60,000 sq. ft. green inner courtyard and indoor parking garage.

Espace Montmorency was planned according to environmental values designed to make it a benchmark mixed-use property for the future. Today, these measures are paying off in the form of energy savings of more than 50 per cent, with the complex’s energy loop resulting in a 92-per-cent decrease in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Espace Montmorency has obtained LEED for Neighbourhood Development Gold certification. The partners also targeted LEED Gold certification for the buildings’ cores and shells, reflecting water savings of 45 per cent; use of 15 per cent recycled materials and use of 35 per cent regional content.

“We’re extremely proud to announce the official opening of the new Courtyard by Marriott Montreal Laval at Espace Montmorency,” says Dario Montoni, president, Montoni Group. “The final component of this complex is now a reality. As a developer, being part of large-scale projects such as this one, which energizes the economic and social vitality of Laval’s downtown, is our motivation every single day.”

“As one of the leading operators in the Canadian hotel industry, it was natural for us to partner in an innovative project like Espace Montmorency, which is a model of sustainable real-estate development in the heart of downtown Laval, and in so doing add an 11 th hotel to our management portfolio in the Greater Montreal Area,” says Serge Primeau, managing partner, Urgo Hotels & Resorts Canada. “We welcome the opportunity to contribute to this ambitious project in the region, which addresses a need in the business community.”
