Project description

Quartier des spectacles

244,500 sq. ft. of grey and anthracite-hued Avenue LEED pavers

 “LIFE, ART AND ENTERTAINMENT” 

Built for the most part on the city’s old red light district of the 1800s, the area’s new role was officially defined in 2003. “The Quartier des spectacles  is gaining its own visual identity with a unified vision: “Downtown life, art and entertainment.” $120 million was invested in the four different phases of the Place des Arts sector revitalization project. “We conceived this project by first creating the public spaces and naming them, and then creating the entire urban framework. That required considerable ingenuity and innovation,” noted Réal Lestage, urban planner and associate at Daoust Lestage. 

Mr. Lestage explained that they had to work under enormous constraints: “The public spaces have to accommodate large numbers of people to be hospitable to major gatherings, but they must be pleasant places to visit at all times.” Every detail was important from the LEED pavers used to reduce the urban heat island effect, right down to the last construction bolt.
