Master Plan Fermer

Planning guidelines

1 Preserve and enhance buildings of heritage value.
2 Maintain the character of the built environment in each part of Griffintown, by favouring appropriate design and architectural vocabulary.
3 Favour housing construction where appropriate, particularly east of De La Montagne and on the site now occupied by Canada Post and ensure the harmonious coexistence of residential development with economic activities.
4 Maintain institutional and economic activities on Peel and Notre-Dame streets and west of De La Montagne.
5 Evaluate the relocation of certain enterprises that are incompatible with residential uses.
6 Facilitate the development of recreational and tourism facilities between Wellington and the Lachine Canal.
7 Improve Peel's design in order to facilitate movement, especially on foot, between the Central Business District, the Lachine Canal and the Old Port.
8 Study the possibility of establishing a public transportation service, such as a modern tramway, light rail system or shuttle bus, connecting the Quartier des spectacles, the Old Port, Jean-Drapeau Park and Mount Royal.
9 Relocate the Autoroute Bonaventure corridor, converted to a ground-level urban boulevard, in order to free up the waterfront and improve access to the adjacent sites.
