In recent years, various projects have contributed to the revitalization of the Sud-Ouest and Pointe-Saint-Charles, a historical district undergoing a true metamorphosis. How do citizen development projects contribute to the vitality of an ecosystem that guarantees the protection of living together and social justice? How do we conceive the symbiosis between the conservation of industrial and popular heritage, and residential development under the pressure of neighbouring districts?
CIRM invites you to discover Montreal neighbourhoods as part of a series of conference-experiences inspired by the book Montréal: cité des cités (eds. Juan-Luis Klein and Richard Shearmur). During a field visit to Bâtiment 7 and a panel discussion with experts from the municipal and university worlds, we will address these questions in regard to the Pointe-Saint-Charles experience.
