Sampling of recent projects
Côte-des-Neiges / NDG
Our client acquired the abandoned property at the corner of Decelles and Avenue du Troie, which is located within the “arrondissement historique et naturel de Mont-Royal”. We coordinated all the required municipal and provincial government approvals for the demolition of the existing building and the replacement with the nine storey Onyx Condominium development.
Our client owned the property at the corner of Lapierre and Jean Queneville which was zoned industrial. We coordinated the rezoning procedure to allow for a new four storey residential condominium development.
Libcorp was hired by the Junior de Montréal, the new Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team to coordinate the modernization and all the renovations to the Verdun Auditorium, a public building which will be the new home for the team.
Our client acquired the land at the south-east corner of the Trans-Canada (Highway 40) and St. Johns Road in Pointe-Claire, on the north side of Holiday Road. A major development is being built on the site including a commercial centre, senior’s residences, office building and hotel. The south-bound direction of Saint Johns does not permit a left hand turn onto Holiday, thus limiting access to the site. Libcorp was mandated to coordinate with all relevant municipal authorities and with Transport Quebec, a solution for greater access from the south-bound direction of St. Johns Boulevard to the site by changing the geometry of the intersection and allowing a left-hand turn onto Holiday.

Libcorp was mandated to coordinate all steps necessary to acquire a vacant lot from the City at the corner of the Metropolitain (Highway 40) and Papineau Street. Once successful in acquiring the land, Libcorp was then mandated to coordinate all the zoning changes necessary to allow for a large car dealership on the site with repair, maintenance and storage facilities.
A large vacant lot adjacent to the Dompark industrial buildings on St. Patrick, fronting on the Lachine Canal, was zoned for industrial use. Libcorp was mandated to coordinate all rezoning approvals to allow for a six storey, 200 unit residential project with commercial uses on the ground floor.
Our client, the owner of the Hôtel du Fort, sought to establish a more elegant connection between the lobby and exquisite second floor lounge.
