MONTREAL, June 26, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Office de consultation
publique de Montréal announces that the presentation of briefs on the
new version of the Montréal General Hospital expansion project will
start on Monday June 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the offices of the OCPM, at
1550 Metcalfe Street, 14th floor (Peel Metro Station). A second evening, same hour and same
location, will be held the day after, Tuesday, June 28. More than
twenty briefs were tabled before the commission.
The new draft differs from the one previously adopted in many ways.
Firstly, contrary to the original plans, the Institut neurologique de
Montréal will not be set up on the Montréal General site, also
designated as the MUHC de la Montagne site. Moreover, the new plans
call for the integration of a building acquired by the hospital,
located at 1750 Cedar Avenue, resulting in a less extensive conversion
of the existing buildings. The planned underground parking garage has
also been replaced by a partially underground indoor parking facility.
All available information on the project may be obtained at the offices
of the OCPM, 1550 Metcalfe Street, suite 1414, and at the Direction du
greffe at City Hall, 275 Notre-Dame Street East. The documentation is
also available on the Office Website, at www.ocpm.qc.ca.
