Commercial real estate developer and manager Carbonleo announces plans to build a multifunctional urban center ROYALMOUNT.The development project represents an investment of $1.7 billion, will be situated in underutilized industrial area of Town of Mount Royal. This vast complex will offer an area of four million square feet, on a 2.5 million square feet site.
Customers will enjoy major retail banners; popular entertainment attractions such as a rooftop green space complete with an agora-style public meeting place; an indoor cinema complex and outdoor cinema on the green roof; a performing arts space; a water park; many restaurants and terraces; an outdoor skating rink; two hotels; and numerous office towers.
Carbonleo hopes, ROYALMOUNT project will encourage Montrealers to stay on the Island, rather than traveling to the North and South Shores, or even farther to outside the province.
Visitors to ROYALMOUNT will be able to access the site through the main entrance on Royalmount Avenue. Here they will first discover a large outdoor square surrounded by restaurants, animated fountains, and upscale retailers. Visitors may continue their journey indoors through the three floors of the complex, on their way to the green roof: an area where parents can spend time with their children enjoying the water slides, attending various events in the agora public space, dining in one of the many restaurants, watching movies, or even catching a Broadway-style show in a performing arts area that will seat up to 3,000 people.
The green roof will be one of the project’s most popular attractions, and will encourage the recovery of rainwater. Under this green roof, which reduces heat islands in the region, the project offers visitors 8,000 indoor / covered free parking spaces. Visitors will have access to public services, including commuter links between the metro and pedestrian routes.
