Commercial or Office Leases

To rent La Grande-Place


Whether you are running a store or opening an office, Complexe Desjardins is a wise choice of location, with numerous advantages.


The multifunctional nature of Complexe Desjardins provides the people who work there with easy access to many services and stores, as well as the on-going animation of La Grande-Place main concourse, and an environment where the architecture combines natural lighting and vegetation with the impressive spectacle of the majestic central fountain.

Complexe Desjardins is directly accessible by two métro stations: Place-d’Armes (orange line) and Place-des-Arts (green line).

The vast underground parking lot holds 1,046 vehicles, and offers special monthly rates.

Those who work at Complexe Desjardins also benefit from some other exceptional advantages:

  • located in the heart of downtown Montréal;
  • in the middle of Montréal’s cultural crossroads and the site of the Quartier des spectacles (the site of many summer festivals);
  • a stone’s throw away from the Palais des congrès, Montréal’s convention centre, the Quartier international, Old Montréal and the Old Port, as well as the Latin Quarter

Those who work at Complexe Desjardins have access to leasing spaces and facilities characteristic of Class “A” buildings, i.e. among the most prestigious in Montréal.

With a focus on prevention, Complexe Desjardins’ Security Department is well-known for its expertise and plays a leadership role in its field. In fact, the department is often held up as a reference, especially in the media.


Complexe Desjardins merchants enjoy the advantage of a captive clientele of approximately 10,000 employees.

Shops benefit from high traffic and business volume through the added value generated by the numerous ongoing events organized in La Grande-Place. Moreover, these events often serve as promotional platforms to stimulate commercial activities. The two sectors of activity work hand in hand at all times.

The synergy generated by the proximity of the cultural district and the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel draws in a large number of potential clients.

The arrival of prestigious brand names as well as a grocery store in recent years has helped attract a new clientele.

Shops benefit from a dynamic advertising strategy. Over the years, the commercial activities and promotions organized in co-operation with the Association des marchands du Complexe Desjardins (merchants’ association) have attracted a growing number of participants, which in turn increases sales volumes.

The merchants have access to a variety of advertising media, such as in the elevators and public areas, where they can promote their services or products.

Free parking, offered at certain times and under certain conditions, attracts customers on an on-going basis.

The effectiveness of the Complexe’s integrated systems and security staff, the focus on prevention and the advantageous configuration of the shopping gallery all make Complexe Desjardins one of the most secure buildings in Montréal’s downtown area.

  • Since 1997, shopping gallery sales at Complexe Desjardins have increased at twice the rate of those in the overall Greater Montréal retail sector.
