Avenue des Pins, at the heart of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal, is undergoing revitalization between Rue Saint-Denis and Avenue du Parc. The city is in the process of vital underground infrastructure renovations, and is taking the opportunity to redesign the street’s surface.

Transformation of a commercial street

Over the next few months, Avenue des Pins will undergo major changes. 

The future Avenue des Pins has been redesigned to improve safety, comfort and everyone’s experience. This commercial street will get wider sidewalks, raised and protected unidirectional bike paths, landscaped sidewalk edges and contemporary street furniture.

The project aims to

  • Upgrade surface and underground infrastructures
  • Improve pedestrian features
  • Make bike path safer
  • Make the area greener
  • Create spaces for rest and socialization
  • Enhance the historic buildings along the avenue 

When the project is complete, residents and merchants will be able to enjoy a safe, green and user-friendly street. 

Enhancing the street’s historic buildings

With this project, the city intends to enhance the beauty of the street’s cultural and institutional heritage while taking the mobility needs of each user into account. More than 150 trees will be planted, creating a green corridor with a breathtaking view of Mount Royal.
