The territory of the Town of Mount Royal extends from both sides of the intersection of Highways 40 and 15 and that major junction provides a clear geographic separation between the Town’s industrial activities and its residential and commercial space.
The Town of Mount Royal industrial sector represents almost 40% of the Town’s area and its closest neighbours are the Cité scientifique de Montréal and the current Blue Bonnets Hippodrome site, and it also gives out onto Côte-de-Liesse Road and the Décarie Expressway. Approximately ten kilometres from Montreal-Trudeau International Airport and fifteen highway kilometres away from the Port of Montreal – and just half that distance by train – it’s a great location.
Because of its location, the Town of Mount Royal industrial sector provides strategic access to the main Canadian, North-American and international markets and benefits from its proximity to several laboratories and universities: McGill University, Université de Montréal, Concordia University, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), HEC Montréal.
Approximately 33% of jobs in the industrial sector can be found in distribution activities, while 25% make up the manufacturing section.
The overall industrial sector has already been densely built; from this point on, set-up projects involve more of a re-conversion of existing stock than choosing a vacant lot.
The Town of Mount Royal includes five (5) well defined commercial sectors. They are located right on the four corners and right in the middle of the Town’s residential half, east of Highway 15.
