  • “We’re foreign-based investors so awarding a property management mandate presented a big challenge. But we’ve risen to it with SIDEV ’s help. When we entrusted our buildings to SIDEV we obtained the assurance of high-quality service at a competitive price. Gestion SIDEV has acted on opportunities to maximize the profitability and value of our properties. The results speak for themselves: our buildings have an average occupancy rate of 90%. Their exhaustive operating reports and proactive approach make them managers without equal. The project to revitalize with a change of vocation 400 Maisonneuve is the best example: a downtown building previously occupied by industrial tenants in the fur trade was completely modernized and redeveloped by the Gestion SIDEV team. Today its prestigious tenants include Le Groupe Spectra, Visa Desjardins and Omer Deserres. In 2006, the building was awarded the celebrated Prix du Patrimoine Commercial by the City of Montreal and Heritage Montreal. Gestion Sidev exceeded all our expectations on this project. Bravo, Sidev!”
