Melatti: 40-year presence in LaSalle
It was in 1964 that Gino Melatti Senior founded his construction company in LaSalle. Through the years, he and his sons Mike, Dany and Gino Jr. proved to be successful in the area. Their residential, commercial and industrial construction projects are legion in LaSalle, with about 5,000 units so far.
Members of the Melatti family have always lived in LaSalle. They are convinced that LaSalle is the perfect place to live. Their attachment to the Borough is highlighted by the fact that a street and a park carry the Melatti name. This serves as recognition for a family of entrepreneurs who continue to design and develop new projects.
Gino Melatti Junior says: “My father arrived in LaSalle in 1964 and we have stayed here ever since. I believe that I can sell our project because our roots are here. We’re well positioned and we know everyone.”
Melatti constructions are in about ten streets in LaSalle. These streets are Dollard, Daoust, Lemieux, Lefebvre, Thierry, Salley, Shevchenko, Pagé, Dupras, Mongeau, and the crescents Murphy, Duhamel, Cyrenne; the Construction G. Melatti trademark is also visible in other streets.
“My father bought one of the first lots on Dollard Avenue. He built two commercial buildings there and the City turned Dollard into a major thoroughfare for LaSalle”, explained Gino Junior.
