Inauguration of Square Dorchester

The newly renovated Dorchester Square was inaugurated on June 6th, 2019. The opening marked the third phase of the redevelopment project of the northern fringe of the historic site.

The northern edge of Square Dorchester had been cut off in the mid-1900s by the construction of an underground parking garage and the widening of a street. To mark the completion of the redevelopment that debuted in 2015, Claude Cormier et associés and their client, the City of Montreal, celebrated the new design of the park which includes the installation of an atypical fountain that playfully references Montreal’s “belle-époque” period, as well as two arched pedestrian bridges that restore the park’s original pathway layout – effectively positioning the park thresholds closer to rue St-Catherine and allowing the influx of daily pedestrians to access this beautiful green space unhindered.

2019 CSLA Excellence Awards:
Breakwater Park, Kingston, Ontario, wins a CSLA National Award for medium-scale public landscapes

Breakwater Park is a promise for a magically immersive encounter with Lake Ontario. The project, for which construction began in 2012, developed in 3 parts: the revitalization of an existing park, a redesign of shoreline infrastructure, and an expansion into a neighbouring terrain vague with a derelict post-industrial dock transformed into Canada’s first deep water urban swimming pier.

Since its Summer 2018 inauguration, the increasing number of parkgoers has been an unmistakable testament to the project’s popularity and its contribution to Kingston’s urban life. This appropriation by the public concretizes our deepest wish as creators.

We warmly thank our collaborators:

Coldwater Consulting – Shoreline Engineering
WSP Canada Inc – Electrical, Structural, and Mechanical Engineering, Contract Administration
Harbourside Engineering Consultants – Seawall Engineering
Shoalts and Zabeck Architects Ltd. – Accessible Swimming Feature
BHE Ltd – General Contractor

Congratulations to the whole team!
