Answer: Montreal is an island. There is a shortage of natural land. It is a big Manhattan. The world forgets that this is not the GMA. Toronto is referred to the Greater Toronto Area. Montreal cannot be referred to as the Greater Montreal Area. It is an island, there is a natural rarity. And when there is natural rarity, as I said my grandmother told me when I was young, “You should buy land, they will not be building them anymore. ” This is exactly what is happening in Montreal right now. There are no more properties, disinfected factories, parking lots, they are slowly disappearing one after the other. So what does this do? Causes densification as the urbanization curve stays the same everywhere no matter where you are on the planet. Exactly. We have followed the same trajectory as the curve in New York, Paris, Vancouver, we’re just at a different point on the curve of urbanization, but ultimately we are all going to the same place. We will attain the prices, and densification of Hong Kong sooner or later, I guarantee you. Let’s not forget, compared to most cities, Montreal is an island, so this curve will accelerate even faster than that of these cities.
