Rumours out of Laval that the Chinese community is looking to invest in a new commercial and residential sector off the island of Montreal seem to be just that.
Initially, Laval was sought out for the new Chinatown but it appears that Vaudreuil-Dorion is also in the running for a commercial project. They are also potentially looking to build up to 1,000 homes for the entrepreneurs and newcomers.
François Wang, a real estate agent working with members of the Chinese community, said that the decision has changed many times over the past months.
For now, Wang said, nothing has been decided; if a good proposal comes up he will present it to those in charge.
Karine Lechasseur with the CLD de Vaudreuil-Soulanges said she and her colleagues have heard nothing about any proposed towns to build a Chinatown West.
