Chemin Vert Marconi-Alexandra

Chemin Vert Marconi-Alexandra

01/01/2016 - 30/10/2019

The Chemin Vert Marconi-Alexandra, a concept proposed by the Société de développement environnemental de Rosemont (SODER), will be a green corridor of biodiversity at the heart of the Alexandra-Marconi district in Rosemont/Petite-Patrie. The project will take advantage of the old railway in the neighbourhood by transforming three areas: des Carrières bike path (south of Beaubien Street), the site of the former Canadian Pacific Railway (between Beaubien and St-Zotique) and private parking west of Marconi Street.

The Chemin Vert will encourage interventions as well as green, urban, and cultural initiatives all along nearly 1.2 km of green space, in an area sorely lacking in natural or public spaces. SODER wishes to actively involve residents, merchants, homeowners and visitors of the district to promote co-creation throughout the project process.
