Redevelopment of Avenue McGill College


Avenue McGill College, located in the heart of downtown, is one of Montréal’s most prestigious streets. It links McGill University to the north to Place Ville-Marie to the south, and some tens of thousands of students, workers and tourists travel along it every day.

Avenue McGill College is also rich in history. For a whole century, almost without interruption, promoters, owners, residents and designers envisioned a number of projects to transform it.

In 1984, this avenue became the subject of a public design initiative.. Avenue McGill College as we know it today, with its stunning views of Mount Royal, was protected thanks to action from Montréal residents.

The Avenue McGill College area is in full swing with the redesign of Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, the arrival of the Metropolitan Express Network downtown and major private investments in Place Ville-Marie and the Eaton Centre. In April 2018, the city announced its intention to transform this famous street and make it a vast, unique and dynamic public space that expresses downtowns vitality.
