Several important consultations scheduled at OCPM this week



    MONTREAL, May 24 /CNW Telbec/ - A number of important consultations will
be held by the Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM) this week.
    Firstly, the consultation on two construction projects in the area of
Saint-Laurent Boulevard and Sainte-Catherine Street, at the heart of the
Quartier des spectacles, will take place on Monday and Tuesday nights. The
first project, the "2-22 Sainte-Catherine," will be built on a
900-square-metre lot along Sainte-Catherine Street, east of Saint-Laurent
Boulevard and west of Saint-Dominique Street. The glass facade of the
33.5-metre-tall, eight-storey building on Sainte-Catherine Street will be
flanked by two more opaque lateral facades. The building will house the
Vitrine culturelle as well as a central promotion and ticket office for
cultural events.
    The second building, the "Quadrilatère Saint-Laurent," will be erected on
lots covering an area of 4100 square metres between the National Monument and
Saint-Catherine Street, west of Saint-Laurent Boulevard and east of Clark
Street. The project involves a commercial complex comprising approximately
28,000 square metres of office space and 4000 square metres of retail space.
The complex will include an underground parking garage for 231 automobiles and
200 bicycles. The developer for both projects is the Société de développement
Angus (SDA).
    A consultation begins on Monday on the planned construction of a
residential building and hotel at the corner of Mackay and René-Lévesque in
the west end of the borough of Ville-Marie
    The project consists in planning the construction of a 34-storey
residential building with 180 housing units, 230 underground parking spaces,
and a basilaire of four to six storeys comprising a hotel and retail spaces.
The complex will be erected on what is currently an outdoor parking lot, to
the north of four Victorian buildings along René-Lévesque Boulevard. Those
four residences will be integrated into the complex and their facades
restored. A building on Mackay Street will also be preserved. The project
covers the entire property running north of the existing buildings.
    Lastly, the Office will hear briefs pertaining to the consultation on the
development of the old Philosophy College in the borough of Ville-Marie,
within the boundaries of the historic and natural borough of Mont-Royal.
    The project consists in converting the Philosophy College building on
Côte-des-Neiges Road, occupied until recently by Marianopolis College, into
housing units, and in constructing residential buildings on part of the
surrounding land. Some 325 housing units are planned. The project calls for
the recycling of the old College, the construction of new buildings ranging
from three to nine storeys in height, and the addition of a 671-space
underground parking garage.
