Montréal centre-ville is gladed with the decision of the borough of Ville-Marie regarding the adoption of the ordinance allowing the work to be carried out at night for the sites on Sainte-Catherine Street and Square Phillips, Indeed, this ordinance responds to the demands of our organization in order to speed up the completion of this work in downtown.
This acceleration will limit the impact on businesses in the sector, which are already severely affected by the pandemic.
“Downtown is already hit hard by the pandemic. The acceleration of work on Sainte-Catherine Street and Square Phillips construction site in 24/7 mode responds to our requests to limit the impact of construction sites in downtown. In addition, we are happy that the work is being done with respect for neighboring businesses and residents. With these measures, Montrealers will be able to benefit more quickly from world-class development that will help to revive downtown” – Glenn Castanheira, Executive director of Montréal centre-ville
The ordinance, which covers the redevelopment of Square Phillips as well as Union Avenue (between Sainte-Catherine Street West and Cathcart) and Sainte-Catherine Street (between Mansfield Street and Robert-Bourassa Boulevard), was adopted on March 9, 2021 by the Council of the borough of Ville-Marie. Work may therefore take place outside of normal hours according to a schedule that may extend up to 24 hours a day, every day of the week, including public holidays, from March 13, 2021 to June 23, 2021. Work causing the most noise pollution is no longer authorized between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. and between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
