  • In March 1990, Bombardier Real Estate Services was mandated to transform the 200-hectare runway used by Canadair in Cartierville into an innovative real estate development. Following a series of comparative studies of similar projects in the U.S. and Europe, the concept for the Bois-Franc residential project was born, inspired by a new urbanism approach.
  • New Urbanism embraces a design philosophy aimed at creating walkable, mixed-use neighbourhoods. This allows developers to create communities where people care about their environment and are invested in a better quality of life.
  • On February 1, 2010, Bombardier Real Estate Services handed the owner-promoter reins over to two partners, Groupe Montclair president Greg Galardo and Sotramont president Marc-André Roy. Their new joint venture, Les Développements Bois-Franc, ensured the evolution of the first three phases and completely reimagined Le Quartier, the final phase of the project.
  • 31% of the land will still be dedicated to green space, lakes and bodies of water, the architectural servitude, and bike paths. However, there will also be new LEED-certified condos and townhouses as well as some small shops and a grocery store nearby. For a number of years now, the project has focused on building condos.
  • Bois-Franc has no shortage of squares, plazas, and parks, and that’s on top of all the local shops at La Grand-Place. This is community living at its finest, and residents love it. There are also no garage doors at the front of residents’ homes—vehicles are parked in underground garages.
