Nobody can be expected to have been paying it any attention, it's a quarry (pit) hailing from 1895

Promenade Smith - Griffintown. 30$ millions.
The winner of the Promenade Smith project has been announced today, competitors from all over the country have send in their project, and it is NIP PAYSAGE that was announced winner.

The project is a revitalization of a industrial part of town, Griffintown. Griffintown was a poor Irish neighborhood, filled with many warehouses due to its location along the Lachine Canal and closeness to downtown (app. 10 minutes). In the past 10 years or so, many residential developments have been springing right and left, and many more are proposed (district Griffith Phase 1-4, Carré de la Montagne, etc.). So the Promenade Smith project was a way of humanizing Griffintown, bringing new much-needed life and green space to the area.

Here is the site today:



Here are the plans by NIP PAYSAGE.

The Area:







The Project:







Perspectives:

Okay, I have to admit it, I can get some inside news on this project while it is still developing. I refuse to name my source(s). The borough is making sure that this plan goes ahead, but I think I there was a conflict because the city wanted to use part of the land to expand Environmental Centre.

I see a common theme in the new projects: everything is mostly glass or concrete. Also, it seems that buildings are no longer perfect rectangles. Thank God.

Yes, it is better to work with the site then going for something rectangular.

Here was the design I like the most for the Planetarium.

God dammit! This was one of the designs? Then why the hell did they pick the other one? Personally, I think it looks like two piles of crap.
