The Société du Havre de Montréal proposes a major $141 million structuring project that should generate $1.53 billion of private investment and 23,000 person years of employment during the construction period.
The development concept is based on central city blocks, the Canadian National rail viaduct, the western frontage of the Récollets faubourg, the De la Commune city block to the south, the Dalhousie corridor to the west and the transformation of the Bonaventure corridor where the expressway is brought to ground level and transformed into an arterial urban road.
The lowering of the Bonaventure Expressway begins with a descent between De la Commune and Brennan streets. From Brennan Street, the arterial road will split into two roadways, distributing the traffic around the central city blocks, on both sides, using Duke Street northward and De Nazareth Street southward.
