For several years now, the Town has wanted to sell its property located at the corner of Avon and Westminster South to redevelop and highlight the strategic nature of this area. By acting as a catalyst for the future development of this sector, the Town aims to revitalize its downtown core around Edgar Davies Park and exploit its full potential. 

The Town has received a duly completed offer for the purchase and redevelopment of the Cadastre du Québec lot 1 292 196 respecting the specific criteria established in its public call for proposals launched in March 2019.

"This redevelopment project represents a shared desire for the Town and Guerrera Tedeschi Investments Inc., the developer, to contribute to the growth and development of our community"

Beny Masella, Montreal West Mayor

This important project allows the Town to achieve many of its objectives, namely to:

  • Respond to the need to increase and diversify the housing stock available on its territory;
  • Welcome new families;
  • Put forward an architectural vision that will ultimately influence the look of Westminster Avenue and highlight the importance of Montreal West’s heritage;
  • Expand the commercial and/or institutional offer on the main street of the downtown core;
  • Maximize the tax base of the site;
  • Promote sustainable building methods.

Temporary relocation of the library

The Montreal West Public Library, currently located in the building at 45 Westminster South, will be temporarily relocated during the construction of this project. The new building will welcome the Library in a new, modern and universally accessible space.

A look at the redevelopment project

The project mainly consists of the following work:

  1. Demolition of the existing library building;
  2. Relocation of water and sewer pipes;
  3. Construction of a building incorporating three floors and a mezzanine and indoor parking;
  4. Landscaping work.

This is a mixed use project (residential/commercial/institutional) that will increase population density. The number and various sizes of the proposed residential condominium units will meet the needs of a variety of future residents, including seniors and new families. This is in response to our strategic vision and to various public consultation exercises conducted by the Town and its partners over the last few years, such as the Age-Friendly accreditation and the adoption of the Town’s Strategic Financial Plan. At its Council meeting held on September 29, 2020, the Town Council adopted a resolution accepting the irrevocable offer presented by Guerrera Tedeschi Investments Inc. for the purchase and development of the Cadastre du Québec lot 1 292 176. Following this acceptance, all parties must proceed to the actual sale of the property within the given timeframe.
