Live, learn, create, have fun


These are the broad lines of the Special Planning Program (SPP) adopted by the Ville de Montréal in light of the planning undertaken by Ville-Marie borough. Drawing on the success of the Place des Arts area redevelopment, the City is continuing in this approach initiated in the Quartier des spectacles. Now it’s the Latin Quarter’s turn for a makeover. A cultural, economic and commercial hub in the making, the Latin Quarter needs to become a balanced, youth-friendly, inhabited and vibrant living environment, by day and by night.

Montréal wants to make this area a unique destination for culture and learning, a showcase for innovation and a must in terms of cultural offerings.

That’s quite a mission, but the Ville de Montréal and Ville-Marie borough will definitely be able to make the Latin Quarter into a source of pride for all Montrealers.
