6600 Saint-Urbain:
the future in mind.

We believe that an office building should empower today’s thinkers and makers to reach their full potential. We also believe that moving forward with the best ideas requires providing the space for them to emerge in the first place.

In collaboration with Montreal’s renowned Quartier de l’innovation, Canderel + 6600 Saint-Urbain are making room for your ideas.

Tomorrow starts now.

In 2021, we will be revamping the post-industrial textile factory that is 6600 Saint-Urbain into a forward-looking and human-scale office building. We’d love to include your ideas in the process!

Canderel + the Quartier de l’innovation are inviting startups to present innovative Proptech solutions and projects that could be implemented at 6600 Saint-Urbain and in other Canderel buildings.

In partnership with the Quartier de l’innovation

A 3 km² world-class experimental area in the heart of Montreal, the Quartier de l’innovation (QI) fosters a one-of-a-kind innovation ecosystem where experimentation and collaboration between academics, entrepreneurs and residents generate benefits for society. The Government of Canada supports QI, the Government of Quebec, the City of Montreal, four universities (École de technologie supérieure [ÉTS], McGill University, Concordia University and Université du Québec à Montréal [UQAM]), and close to thirty private partners.
