Mont-Royal is an island of suburbia in an urban city.
In spring 2016 la Caisse de dépot et placement du Québec annonced a project of a new subway line. There is going to be 2 stations in Mont-Royal, which are presently the existing stations of the suburban train, Mont-Royal and Canora.
Another big change in the neighborhood in the proposed 1.7 billion dollars commercial hub. Despite important changes coming in the neighborhood, there is little space to improve the urban fabric in a very establish and mature area.
