Consultation begins on the future development of Avenue McGill College: From avenue to public square
The Office de consultation publique de Montréal invites Montrealers to a resident think tank to imagine the development of a new public square in the heart of downtown. The OCPM was assigned to this task by Montréal’s executive committee, which aims to take advantage of the redevelopment of Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest and work on the Réseau Express Métropolitain to design the future public square.
Avenue McGill College extends from Place Ville-Marie to McGill University. It offers a unique view on Mount Royal and is home to the city’s most prestigious buildings. It provides access to a number of businesses both underground and above ground. Soon, several public and private projects will transform this site, confirming its significance as an intermodal public transportation hub and trade and business centre.
The Office will begin this participatory process by announcing dates of public information sessions and hearings, as well as putting city documentation online. Many other activities will be added in the weeks to come so that Montrealers can appropriate the square and take part in a creative vision of its future development. The details of these activities will be announced at the information session on October 4.
During the information session, city representatives will present the project. The presentation will be followed by a public question-and-answer period. These sessions will be Webcast live on ocpm.qc.ca and Facebook (@officedeconsultationpubliquedemontreal).
