KIRKLAND, QC, Sept. 9, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Broccolini Limited Partnership No. 2 and Magil Laurentian Realty Investments announced today that they have closed on the
acquisition of the former Merck Canada complex along the TransCanada
Highway in Kirkland, Quebec. Broccolini and Magil Laurentian have
joined forces to develop this world-class 50-acre business and
mixed-use campus which was renamed "Quartier Évolution". The partnership between Broccolini and Magil Laurentian brings
together a qualified team of professionals in construction, real estate
development and property management, in order to fully meet the needs
of future tenants.
"Tenants of Quartier Évolution will be well-served by these unique
facilities. Furthermore, they will benefit from a myriad of services
and infrastructure at a cost that could not be replicated in a new
facility," stated Paul Broccolini, Executive Vice-President,
"Rarely does a property of this exceptional quality become available. We
are delighted to be developing this prestigious business campus,
offering tremendous flexibility and value to leading-edge companies,"
noted Gary Polachek, President, Magil Laurentian.
Quartier Évolution: Multifunctional spaces
With 450,000 square feet of office and life science space in several
free-standing and connected buildings, another 400,000 of assembly or
light manufacturing, distribution and warehousing space, and land for
future expansion, the campus can easily accommodate the needs and
provide tremendous flexibility to the most discerning companies. It
also offers a very unique consolidation and data centre opportunity.
The leasing possibilities are numerous for future tenants. They can
lease one floor, one building or multiply the addresses within the
site. Additional buildings can even be built according to specific
needs. Furthermore, with the Broccolini and Magil Laurentian
partnership, companies can benefit from a turnkey solution from design
to construction of the space.
The facilities are equipped with 100% redundant systems including
Priority 1 power and fiber-optic cabling, potential for 100% fresh air
distribution, two 25-kva lines, backup generators and more. The campus
also comes with some incredible amenities including A/V equipment, a
200-capacity auditorium, furniture and work stations for "plug and
play" leasing and a full service cafeteria.
High Visibility Location: Along the TransCanada Highway
The access to the TransCanada Highway is immediate and represents a real
advantage for any company. Quartier Évolution is located less than 15
minutes from Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport and close to
the West Island bus terminal leading to the Côte Vertu Metro station.
The Fairview Pointe Claire shopping center, less than a kilometer away,
anchors the retail neighborhood and is the focal point for a complete
range of restaurants, cafés, fast food, day care facilities, services
and retailers. Downtown Montreal is a half-hour east and Ottawa 90
minutes west by car.
For all these reasons, Quartier Évolution makes the ideal site for a
head office, a regional office, a life sciences or a medical facility,
a data center, a manufacturing facility or even a research facility.
