Several Important Consultations Scheduled at OCPM This Week

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 25, 2009) - A number of important consultations will be held by the Office de consultation publique de Montreal (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 "Quadrilatere 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 Societe de developpement Angus (SDA).

A consultation begins on Monday on the planned construction of a residential building and hotel at the corner of Mackay and Rene-Levesque 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 Rene-Levesque 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 Cote-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.
