Public space in Saint-Laurent.

Citizens of the Saint-Laurent borough will get a new public space in 2017, a stone’s throw from the Côte-Vertu métro station. This transit point will be redeveloped to become a true public meeting place, and more than just a kiss-and-drop point.

The project calls for the creation of cool areas, the development of a terrace, the opening of a public market and café, the installation of bicycle stands, new lighting, and more. These ideas came out of a vast public consultation held in 2015 with citizens, partners and merchants, but also public transit users.

With the development of this new people-friendly space, the city administration hopes to encourage commuters to appropriate the neighbourhood as well as improve the quality of life of local residents.

This public space in the heart of Saint-Laurent’s cultural neighbourhood is among the first stops in the future network of urban pedestrian routes.

This project is receiving financial support from the city and Saint-Laurent.
Investment by the city: $1.5 million
