One of Montreal's most oft-used metro stations, Mont-Royal, which sees 5 million people pass through its doors every year, is getting a serious makeover. But you already knew that, of course, because we told you about it three weeks ago, and obviously you read and remember everything we post.\nAnyways, questions of readership-loyalty aside, even though the news that Mont-Royal metro is getting a facelift isn't exactly breaking, the STM has released images of the design concept, thus giving us a glimpse into what the Plateau STM station will look like once the redevelopment is done.\nUsing a design that "focuses on light and transparency," as iterated in an STM press release, Mont-Royal metro will become a "a clear, bright building that offers a pleasant experience, while having a recognizable identity through its clean and simple shape."\nGreen space plays a fairly large role in the redevelopment project, as one can note by the grassy areas surrounding the metro and the station's grass-covered roof. One can also expect more changes to the place Gérald-Godin area after the project is over, as the revamp is meant to herald future installations.\nNot simply an exterior redesign, Mont-Royal station will also see a transformation on the inside. Most notable among the changes to the metro station's interior is the addition of two new elevators, thus making Mont-Royal far more accessible to Montrealers with a physical disability.\nTo adorn the inside of the metro the STM will be holding a competition next June in which Montrealers will be asked to submit a work of art. The submitted art will then be chosen by a panel of judges, with more details to come.\nOverall, the redevelopment of Mont-Royal station will cost around $20 million, with construction slated to last two full years; work will begin on January of 2018 and the project is expected to be completed by April 2020. The metro station will remain open throughout the construction period.\nWe obviously have a while to wait before Mont-Royal metro is beautified by this new design plan, but we can hold ourselves over by checking out the concept images below.\nAdd mtlblog on Snapchat.
