Port of Montreal’s Grand Quay: rehabilitation of the cruise terminal and Alexandra Pier


Yet to be completed is an observation tower close to the riverfront, which will open in 2021.

June 2018

Ideally located on the St. Lawrence River, the Port of Montreal’s Grand Quay is now open to the public. After a huge makeover, the Port’s new cruise terminal now provides contemporary marine infrastructure in keeping with the city’s international reputation, and free public spaces with amazing views of the river and the city.

The final concept was designed following public consultations and many meetings with key partners from the economic, tourism and political arenas as well as stakeholders committed to Montreal’s harmonious development, by the architectural firm Provencher Roy.

The MPA thanks the Government of Quebec and the City of Montreal for their contribution to this great project.
