The Faubourgs area is located east of downtown Montreal, close to the central business district. Its rich history and complex identity stretch back to the city's industrial boom in the 19th century. The southern part of this area bears the marks of the major urban redevelopment and highway construction that took place between 1950 and 1980, and led to the demolition of large swathes of the old neighbourhoods previously located there.

The City of Montreal now wishes to seize a unique opportunity to redevelop this area, following the closure of the Molson-Coors Brewery -one of Canada's oldest industries- and the relocation of Maison de Radio-Canada, and to correct major disruption left by previous urban development projects. With this in mind, the City of Montreal has undertaken a major planning exercise, with the aim of re-establishing links between this neighbourhood and the river, Old Montreal and the eastern part of downtown.

The vision for this redevelopment programme, which is based on a public consultation process, focuses on three main objectives:
  1. Strengthening the neighbourhood’s heritage and social and architectural identity;
  2. Consolidating the territory;
  3. Fostering a pleasant, sustainable and environmentally-friendly living environment.

In short, the object is to make the most of the structure of the historic Faubourgs neighbourhoods, to develop a model project for the eco-friendly transition of these industrial and institutional wastelands. The project will aim to minimize greenhouse gas emissions and inspire an environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

Approx. site area
The site covers a total of approximately 20 hectares, including Molson-Coors Brewery (12 ha) and the Radio-Canada ile (7 ha).

Background
Areas undergoing redevelopment, including several large institutional and industrial properties that are vacant or whose occupants are to relocate.

Priority areas & main City expectations

The aim of redevelopment in this area is to create a pleasant, sustainable and environmentally-friendly living environment. This will include:

  • creating a mixed-use development project, including new employment and housing centres on the vacant lots of Molson-Coors Brewery and Maison de Radio-Canada;
  • redesigning the urban landscape in relation to the banks of the Saint Lawrence River;
  • sustainable development of streets and public spaces, with a park on the site of the former Sohmer Park.




Localisé à l’est du centre-ville de Montréal, à proximité du centre des affaires, le secteur des Faubourgs se caractérise par une riche histoire et une identité complexe puisant son origine dans l’essor industriel de la ville au 19e siècle. La portion sud de ce secteur a fortement été marquée par la réalisation, entre 1950 et 1980, de grandes opérations de rénovation urbaine et de construction autoroutière qui ont engendré la démolition de larges parties des quartiers anciens qui s’y retrouvaient.

La Ville de Montréal souhaite aujourd’hui saisir l’occasion unique de requalification de ce milieu, offerte par le départ de la brasserie Molson-Coors, l’une des plus anciennes industries du Canada, ainsi que par le déménagement de la Maison de Radio-Canada, afin de corriger les grandes ruptures laissées par les interventions d’aménagement précédentes. À cette fin, la Ville de Montréal a entrepris un vaste exercice de planification dont l’intention est de rétablir la relation du quartier avec le fleuve, le Vieux-Montréal et l’est du centre-ville.

Construite sur la base d’une démarche de consultation publique, la vision de ce programme de requalification s’articule autour de trois principaux objectifs :

  • Pérenniser l’identité sociale, patrimoniale et architecturale du quartier;
  • Consolider le territoire;
  • Favoriser un milieu de vie agréable, durable et respectueux de l’environnement.

En somme, il s’agit de tirer parti de la structure des quartiers historiques des Faubourgs pour développer un projet modèle de la transition écologique sur ces friches industrielles et institutionnelles. Le projet visera à réduire au maximum les émissions de gaz à effet de serre et à inspirer un mode de vie respectueux de l’environnement.

Surface du site
Le site totalise environ 20 hectares, incluant la brasserie Molson-Coors (12 ha) et l’îlot de Radio-Canada (7 ha).

Eléments de contexte general
Secteurs en redéveloppement incluant plusieurs grandes propriétés institutionnelles et industrielles vacantes ou visées par une relocalisation.

Priorités & attentes principales de la ville
Le redéveloppement du secteur vise à favoriser l’émergence d’un milieu de vie agréable, durable et respectueux de l’environnement. Il inclura :
  • la création d’un projet mixte, incluant de nouveaux pôles d’emplois et de logements sur les terrains vacants de la brasserie Molson-Coors et de la Maison de Radio-Canada;
  • le retissage de la trame urbaine en relation avec les abords du fleuve Saint-Laurent;
  • l’aménagement résilients des rues et espaces publics, dont un parc à l’emplacement de l’ancien parc Sohmer.
