Montreal North opens its Bureau de projets, a unique information and services office for large projects under development in the borough

MONTREAL, Sept. 23, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Gilles Deguire, borough mayor of Montreal North, announced the opening of a Bureau de projets. A first of its kind in Montreal, the street-level office provides residents and business community alike with information, services and visual displays concerning all larger projects under development in Montreal North. The announcement was made in the presence of Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay as well as some hundred invited guests, among them many public and private partners who are participating in these key growth projects in the borough.

"We wish to express our enthusiasm for the big urban development projects that will transform Montreal North over the next years. Our Bureau de projets offers visual displays of our vision for Montreal North in 2020, a vision that aims mainly to improve the quality of life for residents through efficient public transport services, ample green spaces, and an enhanced offer for housing, jobs, and recreation. The office is open to residents and the business community alike and will be staffed with a team of professionals who will accompany businesses wishing to invest with us," said Borough Mayor Deguire. "The creation of the Bureau de projets is contributing to the realization of our revitalization plan for Montreal East and to our willingness to promote public transport. With projects such as the BRT Pie-IX and the Eastern Commuter Train Line, this sector is making great leaps forward in offering Montrealers a more dynamic economic space and a quality living environment," underlined Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay.

The opening of the Bureau de projets de Montréal-Nord conveniently follows the closing of In Town Without My Car week. Two main public transport projects implemented by the AMT—the Eastern Commuter Train Line, and the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRS)—will serve the borough and become effective motors of sustainable development.

These new hubs of transportation have also inspired three other major projects: the complete restructuring (by the City of Montreal) of the Pie-IX and Henri-Bourassa Interchange, borough plans to build a sports and community complex, and a major campaign to attract residential and commercial real estate projects to Montreal North. The arrival of the BRS on Pie-IX Boulevard is an opportunity for the city and the borough to make this major artery more dynamic, more traffic- and resident-friendly, and greener. Lastly, the revitalization of Charleroi Street, a commercial artery that intersects with Pie-IX, is already well underway and will continue until 2013.

The website montreal-nord2020.com offers detailed information about these major projects and their benefits for current and future residents as well as the many business opportunities. We welcome all Montrealers to explore this virtual showcase or to visit our Bureau de projets at 10861 Pie-IX Boulevard!
