Introduction of Master’s Plan initial phase of improvements
Canada Lands Company is proud to introduce this initial round of improvements to transform the Old Port.
The initial phase of improvements estimated at $50 million includes the reconfiguration of the entrances at King Edward, Jacques-Cartier and Clock Tower Quays. These site entrances will provide extensions from Old Montréal to the river, open up views to and from both the city and the river, and improve the flow of pedestrian traffic between Old Port and Old Montréal. The esplanade from King Edward to the Clock Tower Quay will also be reconfigured to add more trees and replace concrete areas with grass surfaces.
The initial phase of improvements will begin in the second half of 2022. The Plan offers a long-term vision to revitalize the site and guide planning and programming to meet the needs of Montrealers and visitors.
