Planning and development project for the western sector of île Sainte-Hélène


Description of the project

Building a new and modern development in the western 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 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. The walkway along the river will provide an outstanding view of the Saint Lawrence and of downtown Montréal.
