Quebec’s residential construction market is currently very strong and has increased provincewide by 20 percent since 2011, with over 50 percent of the new residential construction projects located in the greater Montreal area. The construction of rental units has also increased by 27 percent since 2011, and in line with Quebec’s changing demographics, almost one in every three new residential construction projects is classified as a residence for the elderly. Home renovations are also proving increasingly popular, and the municipality recorded $1.1 billion in renovation work in the first half of 2018, marking an increase of seven percent as compared to 2017. Montreal is also the site of a significant number of new large and medium-sized condo developments, particularly in the boroughs of Ahuntsic Cartierville, La Salle, South West Montreal, Rosemont, and Downtown Montreal.
Many of Montreal’s recent industrial construction projects are taking place within the logistics and transportation sphere. Much of Montreal’s current transportation infrastructure was produced in the late 1960s and is in current need of replacement. Major recent projects have included redesigns of the Turcot highway interchange and the new Samuel De Champlain Bridge. Upcoming projects include an expansion of one of the city’s subway lines, a light-rail commuter train network expansion, a west-end mega park, and a bus rapid transit project on Pie-IX Boulevard. Montreal’s surrounding suburbs have also seen a much-increased demand from online retail companies who are taking advantage of the relatively inexpensive large-parcel land values and beginning to construct distribution centers on the outskirts of the city.
