PAMV Development and enhancement plan for the south sector of Île Sainte-Hélène

PAMV Development and enhancement plan for the south sector of Île Sainte‑Hélène

Description of the project

Building a new and modern development in the south sector of Île Sainte‑Hélène by introducing a 65,000‑seat natural amphitheatre.

The central concourse in front of the subway station pavilion will be expanded so that it can connect to Alexander Calder's Trois disques (L'Homme) sculpture and the Biosphere, and extend as far as the Cosmos Bridge. The construction project will result in the improvement of reception, restaurant and security services, as well as enhance active and public transportation.
