C40, a network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change, has launched the Reinventing Cities call for projects, in order to transform underutilized spaces into resilient, low-carbon sites. It is with these goals in mind that Montréal proposed the De la commune Service Yard as a site to be redeveloped as part of this call for projects. Professionals are invited to submit an expression of interest by May 31, 2018.
Inspired by the Reinventing Paris winners, Montréal, a UNESCO city of design, opens the doors to the teams’ creativity through a free program. Projects can be residential, commercial or institutional. The call is launched to multidisciplinary teams who wish to reinvent the site of the service yard, bordering on the entrance to Ville Bonaventure, in order to realize a project that reflects innovation, quality of life, and the fight against climate change.
As part of this call for projects, 19 cities worldwide have identified 49 sites to be redeveloped.
