Quartier Melrose is part of a vision of sustainable development of the territory. Located within the Rosemère regional hub and less than 2 km from two train stations, the eco-district project is in line with the orientations of the Preliminary Draft of Urban Plan, the expressed citizens’ will to preserve green spaces, the recognized principles of eco-district development within a TOD (Transit Oriented Development) zone, as well as with the major guidelines of the PMAD (Metropolitan Land Use and Development Plan) and the MMC (Montreal Metropolitan Community).

ECO-DISTRICT: A favorable verdict from "Vivre en ville"

A non-profit, public interest organization, “Vivre en Ville” contributes to the development of sustainable communities across Quebec. Through its actions, “Vivre en Ville” stimulates innovation and accompanies decision-makers, professionals, and citizens in the development of quality living environments. These successful and favorable actions contribute to the well-being of everyone, while seeking the collective interest and respecting the capacity of ecosystems  (https://vivreenville.org/).

Being aware of the issues and concerns of citizens, the Quartier Melrose development project was submitted for study by “Vivre en Ville”.

Their analysis considers the principles of eco-neighborhoods, specifically the position adopted by the City Council in June 2020 on the urban vision of Rosemère, the results of the February-May 2019 and June 2020 public consultations, and the best practices for eco-neighborhoods.

After an in-depth analysis of the project, “Vivre en Ville” verdict is clear:

“the development project on the former golf course meets the requirements and criteria in respect of the agglomeration and neighborhood levels to become an eco-neighborhood”.

Curb urban sprawl

Quartier Melrose is perfectly in line with PMAD’s fundamental objective of curbing urban sprawl. To secure such an ambitious offer in terms of green spaces and to protect the natural environments located in the TOD area of the Rosemère train station, a minimum density of 40 housing units per hectare is required.

This density is distributed throughout the site, especially along the major public transport corridors of the Labelle Boulevard and the future extended Bouthillier Boulevard. Moreover, the right-of-way of Highway 640 is being considered by the North Shore elected officials as a future site for an REM antenna.
