A wind of renewal at Atwater station
The Sainte-Catherine entrance, located in Cabot Square, has completely changed its look! The work performed in 2017 is part of a sequence of major repairs of the entire station. Less than two years ago, the de Maisonneuve entrance, the mezzanine level and the platform level benefited from a facelift. The Sainte-Catherine entrance project continues this update to current tastes. See the results in pictures!
The work made it possible to redesign the building completely.
The new design is streamlined and modern.
The area of the entrance was optimized for better integration into the environment.
The métro pictograph is encrusted into the glass of the curtain walls.
The interior was not neglected – all the floor and wall coverings have been replaced.
The new configuration favours fluid and safe traffic.
The view of Cabot Square will be magnificent this summer.
The granite steps of the stairway have also been replaced.
The new wall claddings so closely imitate the originals that they can be mistaken for them, with the aim of respecting the spirit of the station’s architecture.
The new family of signage has been integrated into the space.
The lighting was also completely redesigned and improved.
Which aspects of the station has been improved by these renovations?
- Demolish the building’s two triangular-shaped wings
- Demolish a water drainage pan and foot grilles in the corridor
- Rebuild the entryway building’s outer shell (roof and exterior walls)
