intensifying and diversifying activities near the future metro stations and
along Galeries d’Anjou and Jean-Talon East in order to create a lively,
active environment that would include recreational, cultural and hotel activities.

parts of the area.
Favour the replacement of outdoor parking lots by underground
parking garages as a way to free land for development.
Harmonize the design and architecture of new buildings
and encourage quality landscaping.
Plan the surroundings of the future metro stations, reduce
available parking and develop the road network to meet future needs.
Apply appropriate public space design guidelines to areas
with heavy pedestrian traffic.
Review entrances and exits to the various commercial sites.
Review and harmonize signage regulations regarding retail
establishments, billboards and expressway access signs.
Study the possibility of burying the power
