The largest real estate development in Montreal is about to get underway. VillaNova has been dubbed a ‘city within a city’ for its massive scale which will boost the population of the borough of Lachine on Montreal Island by around 42,000 over the next decade.

Around 4,000 new housing units will be created on the 21-hectare former factory site and the first of the units will be ready in 2017 and the sales office for the first phase opens this weekend.
