The Vision

As a purpose-led organization with a company mission of Transforming Communities for a Vibrant Tomorrow, Cadillac Fairview has developed a vision to transform the parking lot into a lively, mixed-use, connected district for the current and future citizens of Pointe-Claire. With deep roots in the community for the last 57 years, the proposed development will act as an anchor for the shopping centre, ensuring a link between the bustling interior and the vast public gathering green space, optimizing a multi-modal transportation connection to the rest of Montreal through the future Metropolitan Express Network (REM).

Some of the highlights for the site include:

  • A thoughtful outdoor space
  • Urban rooftop gardens
  • Local services and shops, including a grocery store
  • Large fenestrated housing units with deep balconies:
  • 900 surface parking spaces transformed to add housing units to the market
  • A short distance walk from the future REM station.

The Opportunity

“First we shape the cities – then they shape us.” -Jan Gehl

Having been in the city of Pointe-Claire for the last 57 years, we have an opportunity to shape a development that is both inspiring and thoughtful in its design for the current and future citizens at the heart of the city.

With immediate impacts of reducing a heat island, bringing life to a rather lifeless parking lot, and creating housing opportunities, the development addresses various issues and sets out to be an example of how to responsibly develop for our collective future.

The first phase of the development will consist of 3 buildings, a public plaza and a parking garage, detailed further below:

  • Seniors’ residences
    • 20 storeys
    • Underground parking – 2 storeys
  • Multi-residential building #1
    • Rental– 25 storeys
    • Underground parking – 2 storeys
  • Multi-residential building #2
    • Rental– 25 storeys
    • Underground parking – 2 storeys
  • Shopping Centre Parking Deck
    • 4 storeys
  • Public Plaza
    • 50,000 SF

Located on a magnificent public plaza, open to the public, and connected to the REM station, these new buildings would ensure a remarkable quality of life for those who live there. With walking-distance access to local services such as an organic grocery store, pharmacy, various restaurants and additional services to come, the development fosters a local accessible, feel all the while being connected to a larger network.

The Location

The project is located in the existing parking lot of CF Fairview Pointe Claire.

The initial phase of the project is located in the South-West part of the parking lot (identified in red below) and will constitute in transforming 900 parking spaces from an existing *heat island* into into a animated, multi-generational community hub that will integrate and compliment the mall as well as be a pillar for the rest of the redevelopment.
