The Saint-Serge neighbourhood along the Maine river is ideally situated, extending directly from the city centre. The proposed block is adjacent to the new city facilities and the landscaped park. With easy access to the tramway and criss-crossed by pedestrian paths and streets, the block offers a great opportunity to develop a rich and ambitious urban project that resonates with those already in place. We have imagined an urban sector that encourages community and togetherness. Despite the high density requested, the various buildings provide a landscaped heart to the area and create perspectives and openings that are both visually pleasing and walkable. Great care was also taken in designing the base of the building to encourage a liveliness in the street and on the ground floor.
