You cross it to reach the square Saint-Louis or the Boulevard Saint-Laurent. You come for coffee, a drink or a meal. Or to stroll around the fountain and in the shops. Despite its popularity, Prince-Arthur Street had lost some luster in recent years ... and a rejuvenation cure was needed! New developments give it a design worthy of its reputation: large planting pits, the creation of a central zone for the deployment of terraces, the addition of a multipurpose space for holding activities, the launch of a competition for a public work of art, the development of the fountain, the installation of new streetlights and street furniture. The ideal place for a leisure stroll!
Rue Prince-Arthur gets a makeover
Each day, some 10,000 residents, workers and tourists use rue Prince-Arthur, one of the city’s first pedestrian streets.
Montréal is funding this project.
Investment by the city: $3.8 million
