LAVAL, Que. — The partners in Espace Montmorency, MONTONI, Selection Group and the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ, have entered into an agreement with Marriott International, which will occupy the hotel portion of Courtyard by Marriott, a new mixed-use development in Laval, Que.
The $45-million hotel, slated to open in fall 2022, will be directly connected to Montmorency Metro station and offer offices, cafes, restaurants, 717 residential units and green spaces. Urgo Hotels & Resorts will assume management.
“The primary market for our Courtyard by Marriott concept banner is business travel, but we also pay close attention to the needs of families,” says Serge Primeau, managing principle and president, Urgo Hotels Canada. “The strategic location of Espace Montmorency, with its easy access to the highway network, public transit and neighbourhood services, was a decisive factor in our choice of Laval as a destination. We are fortunate to be teaming up with such experienced partners for the management of this premium property, which will breathe new life into the hotel offering in Montreal’s Northern Crown.”
“The hotel will stimulate activity and enliven the area for Espace Montmorency tenants, and be a draw factor that will contribute even more to this project’s live/work/play philosophy,” says Réal Bouclin, founding president and CEO, Selection Group. “We are proud to help bring a high-quality hotel complex to Laval in a strategic part of its downtown.”
