POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT STUDY FOR PARC PILON SECTOR

This study was carried out in support of Montreal-North's bid to define Boulevard Pie-IX as the anchor point of an integrated urban redevelopment plan. Situated at the intersection of the boulevards Pie-IX and Henri-Bourassa, this initial development hub presents a unique opportunity to rejuvenate the area with a forward-looking social, environmental, and economic plan that would benefit both current and future residents. 

The construction of large buildings will signify the entrance to the city and reinforce the identifying character and structural importance of this major artery as the heart of the neighbourhood renewal plan.

 

A diverse and varied neighbourhood design is proposed in order to create a space where residents can come together to create social bonds and share cultures and values. The proposal combines recreational, commercial, community, residential, and rental spaces with multiple outdoor areas.
