Montreal’s Main Streets: Big Picture or Pixelated Urbanism?

City Talks

October 21, 2015

LECTURE PRESENTED ON OCTOBER 21, 2015

Emerging from the pathways and trails of the 17th and 18th centuries, the major roads that criss-cross Greater Montreal have defined the city’s development and transport. Notre-Dame, Sherbrooke, Saint-Laurent, Sainte-Catherine: the thoroughfares that once linked villages have today become segmented. Are these main streets approached from a big picture perspective? Is there a way for the region’s decision-makers to rally around a common vision?
