Pour une requalification exemplaire de l’ancien hôpital Royal Victoria

September 08, 2021

Inauguré en 1893, l’ancien hôpital Royal Victoria est encore aujourd’hui un haut lieu patrimonial de la métropole. Situé sur le flanc sud de la montagne, il est considéré comme un bijou de la couronne institutionnelle du mont Royal, site patrimonial déclaré depuis 2005. En 2015, suivant l’ouverture du centre universitaire de santé McGill (CUSM), la majorité des services sont déplacés vers le nouveau campus Glen à l’ouest du centre-ville, laissant l’ancien centre hospitalier largement vacant. Afin de définir un nouvel avenir pour l’ancien hôpital, le gouvernement du Québec a confié à la Société québécoise des infrastructures (SQI) le mandat de requalifier l’ensemble du site en 2018. Par le biais d’une consultation publique menée par l’Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM), la SQI nous dévoile aujourd’hui son plan directeur.
