From the private development side, Met-HB, headed by industry veterans Roberto Soldera of Loracon and Peter Karambatsos of Terrex, as well as the Société de Development Angus, headed by Christian Yaccarini, used the opportunity to unveil ambitious plans that will change the real estate landscape of Montreal East.
The 40NetZero Project is well under way and Met-HB’s vision for the tract of land just north of Autoroute 40 and south of Henri-Bourassa East in Montreal East is becoming a reality more and more every day, with several buildings set for development. The developers estimate the project will entail about $1 billon dollars of investment at completion. The former Petromont site will deliver its first carbon neutral industrial building of 400 thousand square feet in December 2024. The developer has told local media that the building will be occupied by a large pharmaceutical user. If that isn`t a game changer itself, I am not sure what is. Traditionally, pharmaceutical companies have been based in the West Island, as opposed to an East End site. The name of the building’s new occupant will be made public in the near future.

40NetZero Breaks New Ground in East End

Robert Soldera of Loracon and Peter Karambatsos of Terrex are the principals behind the development of the 40NetZero project. Each brings decades of experience working in the Montreal industrial market to the table.

Robert Soldera and Peter Karambatsos

Robert Soldera:
The 40NetZERO Campus covers around seven million square feet, where we’re developing three million square feet of cutting-edge industrial space in addition to a full service tenant amenities Pavilion at the heart of it all. Each building will be LEED Zero Carbon compliant, and the project as a whole is set to achieve SITES certification. The first phase is fully serviced, and we’re currently planning the extension of the road and services for the second phase. Construction of the initial 400-thousand-square-foot building is underway, with a completion target of late 2024, and it’s already fully leased to a prominent pharmaceutical company. We’re currently engaged in negotiations with a number of prospects, and we aim to commence construction of two more facilities in the coming year. We expect it will take about seven years to develop the project completely, and quite frankly we are pleasantly surprised with the demand that we are seeing from highly specialized companies that are all thinking long term at their space requirements.
Peter Karambatsos:
Today’s top-tier companies are increasingly setting ESG targets, insisting on net zero carbon footprints for their facilities. This demand is a significant driver for our project. ESG considerations are no longer optional; they’re essential and frankly, we’re just scratching the surface. Leading corporations, including those in the Fortune 500 as well as financial institutions are demanding these standards. While incorporating these features may initially seem pricier, the overall reduction in occupancy costs offers tenants remarkable value. Not only do our properties qualify for a five-year municipal tax break, but all services have been paid up-front – which mean no local improvement taxes. We’re setting the bar quite high when it comes to building specs. Our buildings will incorporate features such as integrated vertical levelers, airtight construction, thermal-pump technology as well as greater insulation factors. These upfront investments promise long-term returns and cost savings for our tenants while at the same time future-proofing their premises.
