The Ville de Montréal (city of Montreal) wishes to source the most innovative and creative ideas for the permanent construction of Place des Montréalaises, a new public space adjacent to Champ-de-Mars métro station, including a pedestrian overpass.

The city has determined that a priority urban project would be the repurposing of the areas bordering the Ville-Marie Expressway, grouping a number of works under the term “Projet Secteur Champ-de-Mars.” This project aims to define an attractive, high-quality urban frame that repairs the cut made to the area by the construction of the Ville-Marie Expressway trench in the 1970s. In so doing, the city aims to restore ties between the historic city and its former faubourgs and to enhance the high-quality network of public spaces from Square Victoria to Square Viger.

The new public place will be built atop the covering slab installed by the MTMDET (Québec ministry of transport), above the Montréal métro tunnel, and around their periphery.

This competition is:

  • a multidisciplinary landscape architecture competition;
  • international in scope;
  • held in two stages: the first consisting of anonymous proposals, and the second consisting of service offerings prepared by a maximum of five jury-selected finalists;
  • a project competition leading to implementation.

Some numbers from the competition budget:

  • $86,975, plus taxes: lump-sum payment to a maximum of five finalists to expand on their proposals
  • $5,790,000, plus taxes: maximum amount to be paid to the winner in professional service fees
  • $34,080,000, plus taxes: construction budget for the public place and the new pedestrian overpass
