Proposed new building in the downtown business district

Sustainable development


The site of the new HEC Montréal building is just a few minutes’ walk from the main office buildings downtown. It is served by several public transit and active transportation routes:

  • Square-Victoria – OACI metro station
  • Central Station
  • numerous bus stops
  • several BIXI stations
  • the future metropolitan electric network


The proposed HEC Montréal building has been registered with the Canada Green Building Council, and is aiming for LEED Silver certification.

LEED certification is granted to a “green building.” It is a way of enhancing the well-being of building occupants and the building’s environmental and economic performance by applying proven and innovative practices, standards and technologies.

The building’s performance is evaluated from many angles, including:

  • innovation and design process
  • location and transportation
  • green site development
  • water efficiency
  • energy and atmosphere
  • materials and resources
  • indoor environmental quality
  • awareness building and training

The new HEC Montréal building in the business district gets the green light

HEC Montréal is proud to announce that the School has been authorized by the Quebec government to proceed with its proposed new building in downtown Montréal.

The new gateway in the heart of Montréal’s business district will be located next to St. Patrick's Basilica, in the block formed by rue De La Gauchetière, côte du Beaver Hall and a pedestrian laneway leading to boulevard René-Lévesque Ouest. Construction is to begin in winter 2019, and the first students will walk through the doors when classes resume in fall 2021.
