Our cooperative takes a green approach and has chosen to reduce its ecological footprint by locally introducing domestic composters, recycling and using ecological products for its common spaces.

Cercle Carré offers in its new building of 7 floors:

  • A place to live (48 affordable, 3 ½ and 4 ½ units).

  • A space for cultural and community dissemination, located on the ground floor, Espace Cercle Carré.

  • A community green roof, partially covered with 100% native Quebec plants, and wooden deck spaces made of Quebec white cedar, linked by paths of stones of the fields.

  • A residence that welcomes artists from the national and international arenas, which is supported by the Atelier résidence de Montréal program of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.

Open to its neighborhood, its city and the world, Cercle Carré is at the heart of an artistic and human life, dynamic, effervescent, solidarity and sustainable.
