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 Gold 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
