When the Montreal Port Authority announced last April that they were restoring Alexandra Pier and the Iberville International Passenger Terminal, it became another example of how the city could better improve access to the St. Lawrence River, such as Maritime Gateway  and Les plages de l’est (East Beaches) proposals.

.

Montreal is a city of wonderful public spaces, but for a place surrounded by water, public spaces by the shoreline are lacking. Yes, there is the Old Port, and a few places in Lachine and the West Island where the public can get close to the water, but that’s it. Other than the Old Port, the remaining locations are not places that draw massive numbers of people.

.

By renovating the maritime terminal to receive more cruise ships to Montreal, this 25,000 sq.m project hopes to become a focal point in Old Montreal. “This is a structuring project for the tourism industry, as well as for residents and visitors of Old Montréal, who will benefit from the revitalization of the Alexandra Pier facilities,” says Claude Provencher, architect and senior partner

.

The over a century old Alexandra Pier had an impressive history as a gateway for immigrants and cargo. Today, the structure is falling into disrepair. When completed, the maritime terminal will be relocated to the entrance of Alexandra Pier so that disembarking passengers will be closer to the shopping and restaurants of Old Port. Montrealers will gain a new public promenade on the roof of the maritime terminal.

.

“From the project’s outset, our aim was to extend the Old Port’s linear park onto the pier. We wanted to create a space that emphasizes the historical richness of the site while also providing a park, a place to relax, and a space that people could make their own,” adds Sonia Gagné, architect and partner at Provencher_Roy.

.

The addition of a tower will act as a signpost for those arriving to the port. It’s various levels will provide unique perspectives of Montreal and the St. Lawrence River. Several elevated viewing platforms will offer unique perspectives of the city and the river. The tower will be a transitional element linking the esplanade, the maritime terminal, and the new park at the tip of Alexandra Pier.

.

“After having been one of the leading forces in the founding of Montréal, the Port of Montreal proudly continues this contribution with Provencher_Roy by providing the city modern and inviting maritime facilities for cruise passengers and residents. These improved facilities will meet client needs and give Montrealers a renewed access to our majestic Saint Lawrence River to mark Montréal’s 375th anniversary in 2017,” concludes MPA President and CEO Sylvie Vachon.
