I have watched closely as the plans evolved for this site over the past number of years and truly believe that what the town and the developer had agreed upon, by working together, was and remains an incredible project. As a resident of Pointe Claire, it is truly a shame to see a project like this blocked, let alone the manner in which it has been attempted. We will all benefit from a large public square far more than we would from a sea of asphalt which is currently the case. I'm saddened by the forthcoming waste of taxpayer dollars which will be required to fight this issue in the courts. Those dollars, which will add up considerably could be pumped back into our community where they belong. I would like to see more renderings on this website. It would help myself and others to better understand the public spaces and how the new built environment will look and feel when it is built.

A public space designed by Claude Cormier would be an asset to Pointe-Claire as it is to so many other areas of Montreal, Toronto and elsewhere. I would like to see what he does with the space.

Although the planting of trees is welcome, this space contains a high percentage of mineralized surfaces. Furthermore, the benefits of a tree canopy will only be optimized when trees reach maturity several years down the road. The additional of substantial green space is critical to help counter heat island effects.

Thank you, Ms. Di Vito for visiting our site.

Our project is designed by Claude Cormier, a local but internationally renowned landscape architect.

The plaza is comprised of some hardscape (landscape pavers), several grassy areas and a spectacular tree canopy comprising nearly a hundred trees of different native species native to Canada. The health of these trees would be ensured by planting each one in 25 cubic meters of soil, a volume higher than those in most cities, including Montreal and Pointe-Claire. Under this canopy of tall trees, there would be a flowering shrub layer to attract pollinators, such as insects and birds.

Thank you for your comment, Mr. Taylor.
And we could not agree more. Using the space for a much-needed public plaza, a seniors’ residence and rental units is a net benefit to the Pointe-Claire community and its residents.

I think this project has an attraction that will benefit the people who use the REM and stop of to visit. Another attraction that would attract people is to use the projected Fairview Forest as a natural oasis that can introduce us to a relationship with the Forest that will benefit visitors, retail workers and the people of Pointe Claire. I would like to expand on some isdas that will benefit everyone.
