A new village square for Vieux-Pointe-aux-Trembles


The work to revitalize Pointe-aux-Trembles’ historic centre began this summer with construction of a village square. Including WiFi access, a public artwork, a river view, rest and activity areas, this exceptional place is sure to become emblematic for the whole of Montréal.

The work Ici avant, ensuite et maintenant, by Éric Cardinal, provides a portrait of the past and present in Pointe-aux-Trembles. Comprising various materials stacked and assembled to form a three-part sculpture, it will be the borough’s first work of art in a public space, making a direct contribution to urban revitalization.
