This area was a gathering and event space when Montreal was first founded. To recapture that spirit, Lemay unified and enhanced the square and the surrounding streets with a granite cobblestone mosaic and an original take on street furniture.


Pedestrians and car owners move about seamlessly within this “living street” concept, confirming the square’s role as a focal point in the heart of the old city.
