Montreal Is Building A 1km Long Public Terrasse On Saint-Denis Street This Summer

In an effort to help the citizens of Montreal rediscover the awesomeness of Saint-Denis Street, the city of Montreal is planning on installing a public terrasse that would span an entire kilometer. A lot of construction work is supposed to be done on Saint-Denis this summer and the plan is to increase pedestrian traffic in the area in order to revitalize the street and benefit local businesses before the work begins.

The project has been named "La Grande Terrasse Rouge" so we can only assume it's going to be red, unless the city of Montreal is just really bad at coming up with names. It will span the entire length of the East side of Saint-Denis between Roy and Mount-Royal.

The terrasse will be the longest ever installed in Montreal. It will feature tables and chairs that will be available to the public as well as large decorative lettered banners reminiscent of the pink balls in the gay village. Even construction cones will be replaced with more esthetically pleasing alternatives in order to beautify the street rather than turning it into a giant eye sore.

I Went To The Opening Of Montreal's Dreamy New Market Terrasse & It Felt Like Tulum

New City Gas is now home to a restaurant, market, art galleries and first-of-its-kind NFT gallery.

Dreaming of an escape to the Mediterranean or to Tulum in Mexico? All you have to do is head to Griffintown's New City Gas to experience Bazart, a new concept that brings culture, culinary creations and some well-deserved good vibes to Montreal.

I checked out the opening night of the experience and can honestly say it was one of the coolest things I've done in the city.
