"As Aimia's real estate representatives across Canada, we are pleased to have been able to work with them on this major project, and also very proud to have been able to participate in the successful development of this new office tower and condo development project," said Yves Roy, Executive Vice President of Newmark Knight Frank Devencore in Montreal.
