Several consulting-ideation initiatives to be launched over the coming months
Montreal, May 6th, 2019 — Carbonleo President and CEO and Royalmount visionary Andrew Lutfy announces today a public participation process to enhance the Royalmount project. Royalmount will seek input from key stakeholders, experts, leading organizations and the public in general as it refines the many components of its new development.
“We have been actively listening to Montrealers and stakeholders from all provenance in the past months. We want more. We will continue listening and seeking ideas and opinions as we embark on another phase of planning and design improvements’’ says Mr Lutfy.
Royalmount has already benefited from very constructive and ongoing working sessions with the Town of Mont-Royal, the City of Montreal and the working group dedicated to rethink mobility in the Namur-De la Savane sector created by the Quebec government and the City of Montreal. It will now reach out to find innovative solutions and opinions that will specifically increase urban mobility around the project, support a holistic sustainable development vision and design the right balance of residential and commercial components that will help keeping Montrealers on the island.
Over the coming months, Royalmount will be conducting a series of in-person and online consultations to discuss potential areas for improvement and new opportunities for the metropolitan and local communities. It will also organize ideation roundtables with professionals and experts from various sectors, while conducting field workshops with citizens. An enhanced version of the project will be presented in the Fall and citizens will discover the next iteration of this ambitious undertaking.
The planning of the public participation process will be available on Royalmount’s website in the coming weeks. “We are also commited to better communication. Our vision has always been to connect people in a sustainable human environment which will be a true source of pride for all who share the love of our beautiful city. We will better explain this vision while gathering ideas to make it even more compelling’’ he adds.
Mr. Lutfy also underlines the attractiveness of Montreal “While we could have realized this vision anywhere else, we chose Montreal. I chose Montreal. Business partners from around the world are also choosing Royalmount to invest in Montreal. Let’s make this project a collective success. We have nothing to envy to audacious developments in Sao Paulo, Amsterdam or New-York. But we cannot do it without your input. Learning is listening’’ concludes Mr Lufty.
