From the Westmount Independent:

 

It’s been talked about for years: Development of the vacant property at the southwest corner of de Maisonneuve and St. Catherine at the foot of Claremont. Now plans have been unveiled for a Provigo store to be built as part of a proposed 10- storey residential complex targeting seniors.

 

While the project would rise entirely in NDG, the new building would straddle the border with Westmount. The plan calls for a ground-level grocery store with a mezzanine and nine storeys of residential units. The mezzanine will include offices for the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation along with accommodation for out-of-town visitors to patients at the nearby MUHC super-hospital. Underground parking is planned for 200 cars. “This is still a work in progress, but it is what we are proposing at this point,” said Johanne Héroux, Provigo senior communications and public affairs director.

 

She told the Independent last week that 250 notices had been sent out to nearby Westmount residents inviting them to an information meeting for presentation of the plan Tuesday, February 24 at 7:30 pm at 5035 de Maisonneuve, after presstime. A similar session was planned for NDG residents the previous day. “With its multi-purpose vocation, this project will make a positive difference not only in your neighbourhood but in everyone’s hearts,” the notice stated. Listed as partners in the project are La Groupe Maurice, which designs and builds residential complexes for retirees, and the MCH Foundation. Asked if an NDG zoning change might be required, Héroux would say only that “negotiations with the city are under way.”

 

Westmount’s view

 

While approval of the project lies with NDG, of particular concern to Westmount officials is traffic impact and the proposed access to the new building’s underground garages off St. Catherine, where the roadway and sidewalk lie in Westmount as does the intersection of de Maisonneuve. An interior docking area for delivery trucks would enable them to drive in and turn around inside before exiting back onto St. Catherine. Cars, however, would leave by de Maisonneuve. “It’s an interesting project that provides services to our community,” said Councillor Christina Smith, who represents the adjacent District 5. “But we need to take more time to study the impact on the neighbourhood. It’s already at a corner that’s under a lot of stress.” Smith told the Independent she had met recently with Provigo representative Véronique Alepin to learn about the project along with Councillor Theodora Samiotis, Urban Planning commissioner, and Urban Planning director Joanne Poirier. She noted that on St. Catherine St., the new building would come right up to the west sidewalk, “so one would hope it’s up for discussion with Westmount even though St. Catherine is an arterial road.” She said Westmount would be conducting a traffic study on the situation. Mayor Peter Trent said he planned to meet with Côte des Neiges-NDG borough mayor Russell Copeman once the traffic study is completed.

 

The current development proposal is a modified version of one of three options presented a year ago to a small group of NDG residents (see story February 11, 2014, p. 6).

La base est horrible et la section ondulée ne parait pas à sa place... Heureusement que c'est pas au C-V.

 

En dehors de la base à gauche qui mériterait d'être mieux travaillée, j'aime bien.

I'm alright with this project. Only concern is about this stretch of de Maisonneuve near Vendome is that it's a major pedestrian & cyclist zone - especially during the summer. I hope the city takes this into consideration & implements proper traffic planning before giving approval - this project will surely bring even more cars/trucks to already heavily congested area.

      Hi, I'm trying to find information about the patrimonial buildings of ''New City Gas of Montreal'' located inside Ottawa, Ann, Dalhousie and Wellington streets.
      Will there be any construction in the future?
      How high can the build?
      Any plans already available?
      Thank you for any info you might have!

      Les points saillants de l'ensemble du projet sont :
       
       
      1 400 unités de logements locatifs, de copropriétés et de logements sociaux ; sept immeubles, dont six de 20 à 32 étages (superficie totale de 130 000 m2) incluant un immeuble patrimonial de trois étages ; des commerces de proximité au rez-de-chaussée des immeubles ; des espaces à bureaux et un hôtel d'environ 250 chambres ; la construction d'un centre communautaire, le « Centre Peter-McGill », qui abritera notamment une salle de spectacle multifonctionnelle, une bibliothèque, des salles polyvalentes pour l'organisation d'activités culturelles et physiques et une grande salle communautaire ; l'aménagement d'espaces verts et d'un parc public qui compteront pour plus de 30 % de la superficie totale du projet ; l'agrandissement et le réaménagement de la place Henri-Dunant, ce qui implique le réaménagement d'un tronçon de la rue Lambert-Closse à des fins de parcs ; la restauration et l'intégration au projet de la première résidence des infirmières ; l'ouverture d'une nouvelle vitrine sur le square Cabot. Le volet communautaire inclura la construction du centre Peter-McGill et une contribution significative à l'aménagement du parc Henri-Dunant, deux éléments dont bénéficiera la population du quartier. Ces éléments permettront de créer un grand ensemble public assurant la consolidation du square Cabot et du parc Hector Toe-Blake en tant que cœur culturel et social de ce secteur de la Ville de Montréal. Ainsi, le projet contribuera à la relance économique de la rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest.

      The renaissance of Viger Square
      Phil O'Brien Senior advisor
      Telemedia DevelopmentI Inc. Mr. Philip O'Brien will be conducting a presentation about the Viger site on the eastern edge of Old Montreal. He will discuss the history of the site: the building of a grand hotel and railway station in what was then the central core of Montreal, its prominence as a prestigious address for business elites, and its cultural significance for the city of Montreal. The context of its decline during the 20th century will be outlined: from the changing economic conditions in the 1930s and its demise to its current state in the urban environment, resulting from the expansion of the railway yards, the digging of the open trench of the Ville-Marie expressway, and the demolition of a vast number of houses to make room for the CBC project. He will then highlight the exciting potential for redevelopment in light of changing local economic conditions and redevelopment opportunities for this area of town.

      Quartier Concordia
       
      Quartier Concordia will transform the Sir George Williams campus from a collection of scattered buildings into a welcoming and cohesive urban campus in the area bordered generally by Sherbrooke, Guy, René-Lévesque, and Bishop.
      The goals of the Quartier Concordia project include improving the use of outdoor spaces, stimulating street life, and providing respite for the Concordia community and the public. The project will optimize vehicular and bicycle traffic as well as pedestrian flow, facilitate movement between campus buildings, and ensure the safe interaction of vehicles and pedestrians. Quartier Concordia will also maintain a welcoming environment for the Concordia community and the public, highlight landmarks, improve the use of space, promote the display of artwork and create a distinct campus environment within the downtown core.
      The project will be carried out over several years by Groupe Cardinal Hardy and in conjunction with the City of Montreal.
