Montreal Future Mega Projects 2018-2030: Canada’s Hidden Futuristic City
When we think to about a canadian city,we thinkl mostly about Toronto or Vancouver. But Montreal rarely comes to our mind.
It,s because Monrtreal is not known to be a powerful city like Toronto. Did you know that once upon a time,Montreal was the most powerful economical city in Canada. But the sepraratism movement from Quebecers destroyed the economy of the city.
Montreal is also known for the NHL team : Les canadiens de Montréal.
Montreal is the most populous municipality in the Canadian province of Quebec and the second-most populous municipality in Canada. Montreal’s metropolitan area had a population of 4,098,927
In four of the past eight months, the regional unemployment rate has been below six per cent — something that has never happened
It’s not just that fewer Montrealers are actively looking for work. The regional gross domestic product (GDP), the strongest indicator of economic health, rose by 3.5 per cent in 2017. And while foreign direct investment across Canada declined in 2017, it was up 50 per cent in the Montreal region, reaching more than $2 billion.
For the first time in decades, Montreal’s economy is hot.
Montreal continues to establish itself as a worldwide leader in A.I/Tech and has been called the Silicon Valley of the north. Investments from Thales, Facebook, Microsoft, DeepMind and so forth. In addition to A.I/Tech, Montreal also saw huge investments in the gaming industry, aerospace and sciences, which are strong cards Montreal is known for. Montreal is also a higher education city, which plays a key role in investments from companies and universities. The future is bright for Montreal, and we have and will become a world leader in tech, health, aerospace and green energies.
With the 375th anniversary, low Canadian dollar and more global recognition, Montreal has hit the highest number of tourists since Expo 67, with 11.2 million tourists visiting this beautiful city in 2017.
Here are Montreal’s future mega projects that will change the city.
1- Skyscrapers and building:
Montreal is building a lot of new and beautiful skyscrapers that will change Montreal’s skyline forever and for the best.
2- Royalmount mega mall:
The Royalmount Centre, a project that would cover 2.5 million square feet — more square footage than all the space in the Empire State Building — was unveiled Monday afternoon.
The project’s promoter says the centre will cater to everyone. It will feature an entertainment venue, restaurants, stores and businesses.
The plans also include multiple entrances and exits, away from the highways.
There would also be a shuttle service on site, linking people to the future light rail system and the Trudeau International Airport.
One of the biggest malls in the world will come to Montreal.
3- Future public transport systems
CDPQ Infra, a subsidiary of Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, launched construction of the most ambitious electric public transit infrastructure since the Montreal metro 50 years ago. The Réseau électrique métropolitain (REM) is expected to have 27 stations and extend 67 km in the metropolis and its immediate suburbs. His promises are great: he will be active 20 hours a day, from 5 am to 1 am, and could carry up to 150 000 people daily from its first year of operation, according to forecasts of the Caisse de dépôt. If the timetable is respected, the first EMR trains will be put into service in 2021.
Montreal is also planning a hyperloop line that will connect Montreal to Toronto in 2030.
4-Airport Montréal-Trudeau expansion
The project involves the expansion of the landing stage, the construction of a REM station and the creation of a new terminal. More than 18.2 million passengers passed through Montreal-Trudeau Airport last year, an increase of 9.5%.
The first phase, which will run for five years, will cost $ 2.5 billion. That’s almost the same amount as it has invested in Montreal-Trudeau over the last 20 years.
5- Nouveau Pont Champlain or new Champlain Bridge
Since 2015, a new $4.2 billion bridge, “the new Champlain Bridge” 3, bearing the same name, is under construction a few meters downstream from the old one. It was to be completed in 2018, but the opening is scheduled for no later than June 2019. It will replace the current bridge.
Montreal has found back its lost greatness.
