MONTREAL, April 19, 2021 – JLL’s Capital Markets and National Retail Investment Group announced today the sale of Galeries de la Capitale Côté Nord, a high-quality retail complex in the Les Rivières borough of Québec City.

Owned by Oxford Properties Group, the complex was sold to Group Mach. The main building of the Galeries de la Capitale and Walmart were excluded from this transaction.
