ARCHITECTURE | MR-63 PROJECT

On the occasion of the subway car delivery, the MR-63 project will retrieve eight cars and build a multi-level facility to host an arts venue and a café. Originally, the MR-63 is a commemorative memorial sculpture that highlights this icon that Montrealers identify so strongly, but it will also become an ode to our city when it became a metropolis.

ART | MR-63 PROJECT

The aim of the Creative Space is to highlight Montreal’s creativity with a combination of monthly exhibition and collaboration with other local events and artistic festivals. To succeed in the mission of spreading artistic culture, employees will act as guides of the artists. Moreover, to cement the collaboration in the artistic scene, they will refer the users toward different galleries or artistic places in Montreal so that they can continue on their experience.

GASTRONOMY | MR-63 PROJECT

The suppliers of the product sold in the café will be chosen for being innovative and local. They will change every month to showcase as much culinary creators as possible. Those gastronomy artist will be well represented by their products’ side and all the employe will be trained to describe them as loyally as possible so that they are fully recognized. Certified fairtrade and organic products to eat/drink in or take away will be offered.
