The Wellington Basin site (20.5 acres / 8.5 hectares) is part of the several properties that were sold to Canada Lands Company on November 1, 2010 as part of the “Montréal’s New Harbourfront” initiative, which was approved by the federal government in April 2007.
Canada Lands will honour the current lease on the site which expires in 2024.
Canada Lands was invited by the Office de consultation public de Montréal (OCPM) to take part in the planning process for the Bridge-Bonaventure sector, which is being carried out by the City of Montréal. The company is actively participating in the OPCM-led process. The resulting recommendations, expected in November 2019, will guide the next steps.
