Albatros Project in Saint-Eustache

DEVELOPMENT SCENARIOS

The City of Saint-Eustache mandated the firm Provencher_Roy Urbanisme to assess the development potential of the Deux-Montagnes golf course, which was recently acquired by the municipality. The City primarily wanted to find ways to expand its industrial park, which had reached saturation by focusing on hosting prestige companies. The large tract of land would also be able to accommodate various types of housing south of Rivière-Sud Road, near a well consolidated é residential neighbourhood. The City was also considering the creation of a potential of a mixed usage area near the railroad tracks in anticipation of the building of an AMT train station in Saint-Eustache.

The mandate was to formulate development scenarios, taking particular care to preserve the landscape and natural attributes of the site and configure the space to foster a harmonious coexistence of various urban functions and the adoption of active modes of transportation. Particular attention was also paid to reducing the visual and environmental impact of parking lots by planning underground parking for residential buildings and hiding parking lots that serve the industrial sector. These scenarios were detailed in various master plans and 3D models.

Lastly, the mandate called for proposing innovative measures for sustainable development and translating them into normative provisions to ensure compliance with urban planning by-laws.
