West Sainte-Catherine Street, Phillips Square and Place du Frère-André

REVITALIZATION AND REDEVELOPMENT 2020 – SAINTE-CATHERINE STREET WEST

For more than two centuries, its development has been in step with the eclectic pace of the city and its colourful inhabitants.

In downtown Montreal, Sainte-Catherine Street West, as well as Phillips Square and Place du Frère-André, blends the past and the present. Architects the world over have built their works along it, leaving behind an architectural heritage that is as rich as it is full of contrasts. Informed by the desire to bolster the street’s singular identity, the urban redevelopment both streamlined and structured the street and its surroundings. Thoughtful design made the business artery the common thread between the various public spaces and historical buildings that line it, thus promoting economic vitality, the user experience, a festive ambience and ecomobility. It also highlighted the important role the department stores and landmark stores played in the emergence and commercial success of this legendary street.
