The company plans to develop a mixed-use real estate project that is well integrated into the community in the heart of a thriving neighbourhood
Montréal, August 2, 2022 – Brivia Group, together with its partner Olymbec, is proud to announce the acquisition of a 300,000 sq. ft. lot in the Griffintown neighbourhood, more specifically in the quadrilateral formed by Guy, de la Montagne, William and Barré streets.

“This strategic acquisition is aimed at developing a multi-phase, mixed-use real estate project,” said Mr. Kheng Ly, founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brivia Group. “Although we are in the process of conceptualizing this future project, we already know that the “îlot de la Montagne” will fit seamlessly into the urban environment by offering a variety of additional housing in the neighbourhood, in accordance with market needs, including institutional and commercial components.”
“The project will help to promote an enhanced link between Notre-Dame Street and the Lachine Canal and is being designed to respond to the needs of the housing market,” said Richard Stern, President of Olymbec. “We are proud to be partnering with Brivia Group. With Mr. Kheng Ly’s vision and track record of high quality projects, this is a great opportunity for us to create a structuring development project with a forward-looking vision for the community, one that meets the needs of citizens and adds commercial diversity to this area along with generous green spaces.”
