Summary

Located in what was once a bustling industrial neighbourhood without a name, Gorilla Park is a virtually unused lot situated just north of the Van Horne overpass in a section of Mile-Ex known as Marconi-Alexandra. Recent development in the area, such as the new UdeM campus and several investments by the tech-sector, have proliferated the recent wave of revitalization and given Gorilla Park the opportunity for a new life. However, a challenge is presented within this opportunity. We need to create a park that adequately serves both tenured residents and newcomers, functions as a pole of shared mobility, and reflects the unique history of the space. The common thread of our proposals and interventions for Gorilla Park lie within the notion of mobility. Our broader vision for the space is to etablish Gorilla Park as a hub of activity, flows and movement.
