The Construction Source

SEPTEMBER 2021 Moving forward, she says that SDA Angus will continue to take that reality-based approach – even as they deliver imaginative and forward-thinking projects like Cité Angus and the Technopôle Angus at large. In just the last year, SDA has developed over 100,000 square feet of land, including Centre de santé Angus – a new health centre, which houses the largest Family Medicine Group (FMG) in Quebec, radiology and physio and occupational therapy clinics, a pharmacy and a medical research facility. That centre addresses the healthcare shortage in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie, while offering patients all the services they need under just one roof. On the other side of the district, SDA also recently developed and delivered a new head office for lg2 – the largest independent creative agency in Canada. That’s a 60,000 square foot building with 9,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Currently under construction, meanwhile, is a building slated for student housing, with 140 units due to be completed July 2022. Next year, SDA will also start building social housing. The Giant Steps School – a school for children with autism spectrum disorder – will later be relocated to the district as well. Those are just some of the examples of the upcoming attractions that Angus has to offer – there’s also an upcoming craft brewery on the ground floor the health centre, and an upcoming wine bar under lg2’s office. “That will be really fun for Angus,” Marilou says. “We started by developing a lot of the essential services, but now we’re developing some of the fun things. We’re on the lookout for interesting projects. It’s exciting to be part of it.”
