In fall 2018, an avant-garde urban village will emerge across from Jean-Duceppe Park in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie. Inspired by the most innovative urban planning and sustainable development principles, the Technopôle Angus green neighbourhood will provide a unique lifestyle and high-quality amenities for resident families and businesses. The green neighbourhood’s first residential component will include 120 condos, most of which are affordable units ideal for young families.
Complementary mixed uses
To develop a project like no other, Société de développement Angus put together a team of architects, urban planners, engineers, and landscape architects spearheaded by architecture firm Provencher_Roy. The team dreamed big, and the result is a mixed-use neighbourhood where people can happily live and work together. Businesses, stores, and residents will come together to form a balanced, vibrant, and resilient community.
A lively, welcoming community
The new green neighbourhood will open onto Jean-Duceppe Park and the many great local businesses in Technopôle Angus. But that’s not all: it will be intersected by a tree-lined pedestrian street and intimate green alleyways. The outdoor area will include 2 bustling squares surrounded by businesses and services, urban woodlands, and garden plots for residents. Best of all, the heart of the green neighbourhood will be a car-free zone – a huge plus for residents!

Walk, bike, and enjoy car-free living
When it comes to getting around, the green neighbourhood was designed to promote sustainable transportation. Car and bike sharing services are already available on-site, bus service to Préfontaine Metro has been ramped up, and the City is planning on upgrading the network of local bike paths. A grocery store, SAQ, bakery, gym, clinic, restaurants and other services are less than 10 minutes away on foot. There are 3 large parks nearby, with playgrounds and sports facilities. And car owners are well served by a large underground parking lot with a smart parking management system.
An ideal home for young families
Residential development will occupy 45% of the green neighbourhood’s area, and most will be focused on meeting the needs of young families. The green neighbourhood offers families affordable condos and a sense of community right in the city centre, and the opportunity to build relationships with other families in a safe, healthy environment. Plans include a new elementary school and 2 daycare centres (CPEs) with 60 spaces each.

A sustainable development model
social economy enterprise established to revitalize the neighbourhood after the Angus Shops closed in 1992. Over the last 25 years, SDA has created strong ties with the local community and the Technopôle Angus’s innovative model has been recognized with numerous awards and certifications.
Today, SDA is fulfilling its mission with an innovative project targeting LEED-ND Platinum certification: we’ll be among the first neighbourhoods in Canada designed, built and managed from the ground up according to the highest standards of sustainability. Innovative features that qualify the green neighbourhood for LEED certification include state-of-the art rainwater harvesting and heat exchange systems
Phase 1: A residential complex for young families
