  • Concept and challenges: The development program for this industrial site on the edge of the Lachine Canal is aimed at giving the river back to Montrealers. Lively environment - With 9.6 hectares of housing and services that mix the needs of families, neighborhood residents and future users, the project goal is to create a mixed dense and welcoming urban environment. The interventions reinforce the harbor spirit of the site by releasing the four major basins of the site, backfilled since the 1960s. This project aptempts to get a LEED-ND certification of silver level : natural architectural evolution of this site. The implementation of a residential project on a former industrial site and the conservation of the morphology of the traces of the past was possible from the development of the old port basins, corresponding to sites of size valid for residential buildings. The result is a medium density project, with buildings of a size compatible with the scale of industrial buildings such as the Red Path, built along the Lachine Canal. The master plan and its forst phase was completed by CHA.
