Evolo Condos in Montreal
The Îlot Voyageur is to be sold off in pieces to different owners, except for the bus terminal which remains more or less public property.

Well, better than being a large eyesore, like the one that sat for years on the eastern edge of Old Montreal, near the brewery. And the public really doesn’t need to own it. Maybe some nice office space in the area, so there are enough people to support the local economy in the area?
Last December I posted about a plan for the southern piece of the Îlot to become a public health campus for the CHUM, a plan mentioned briefly in the last paragraph of that business piece.
I have no real problem with part of the project being privately developed, but with some sense of harmony to the surroundings. It would be nice if more street life could be brought to Berri on both sides of the bus station entrance and if the other side, facing Saint-Hubert and now a Potemkin village of faux façades painted on canvas, had some interaction with the street and didn’t become only a dead wall with garage entrances (although I would put my money on the latter as the most likely outcome).
