Description
The project that is the subject of this competition consists in designing Place des Montréalaises, a new public space adjacent to Champ-de-Mars métro station, including a pedestrian overpass leading to Champ-de-Mars.
The Ville de Montréal has determined that a priority urban project would be the repurposing of the areas bordering the Ville-Marie Expressway, grouping a number of works under the term “Projet Secteur Champ-de-Mars.” This project aims to define an attractive, high-quality urban frame that repairs the cut made to the area by the construction of the Ville-Marie Expressway trench in the 1970s. In so doing, the Ville de Montréal aims to restore ties between the historic city and its former faubourgs and to enhance the high-quality network of public spaces from Square Victoria to Square Viger.
The Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports (MTMDET) is currently performing work to cover part of Ville-Marie Expressway, which will enable the City to develop the site. The new public place will be built atop the covering slab installed by the MTMDET, above the Montréal métro tunnel, and around their periphery.
The construction budget for the public place and the new pedestrian overpass is $34,080,000.
