Office life in Montreal and why these are the best buildings to work in!

Office life and the corporate workspace in Montreal have seen their fair share of changes over the course of the last 3 years. From the moment the restrictions were lifted, and employees slowly returned to the office in either full-time or hybrid contexts, companies had important decisions to make regarding the size, layout, and location of their office spaces. This, combined with a priority in employee well-being and above-average expectations of working conditions, led to an increase in demand for top-grade office buildings and spaces, giving the employees a greater incentive to present themselves in person.

Take a look at these five strategically located office buildings for rent in Montreal that meet the needs of employers and employees alike. With flexible rentable areas, captivating common areas, and upgrades with the environment and the tenants’ well-being in mind, there is no doubt that any employee would look forward to coming into the office and would make the employer’s investment worthwhile.


The most recent new-construction office building to grace the Mile-Ex, and the head office of Mondev itself, Milwork’s high-quality office spaces and green initiatives contribute to the wellness of the building’s tenants. The tall, exposed ceilings and large fenestration create openness and flood the spaces with natural sunlight, maintaining a positive and focused energy among employees. The energy-efficient heating and cooling system combined with the monitoring of central humidification and fresh air have both the tenant and environment in mind for a healthier, greener workspace.


Workers can look forward to a healthy and supportive office space during work hours, and benefit from the spectacular amenities during their down time. From a fully-equipped gym with showers and locker rooms, to a bright and open lounge and a rooftop terrace, employees can spend their lunch hour breaking a sweat or retreating to a common space to lounge or soak up the sun. Even during the winter months, the floor-to-ceiling windows of the top floor gives you all the Vitamin D you need during a leisurely walk on the treadmill or while unwinding on the comfortable sofas.


Getting to and from work is easy at Milwork with the underground parking for cars, electric vehicles, and bicycles, and with the nearby de Castelnau and Parc metro stations.
