Nowadays, Griffintown is under the spotlight due to an urban renewal plan which is transforming the landscape accordingly. Former working-class neighborhood, north of the Lachine Canal, the Irish community settled there as early as 1847 and started using it as a rallying point. Jonathan Cha, urbanologist, landscape architect and doctor in urban studies invites you to go back in time in order to discover the history of the neighborhood and its multiple transformations.

Jonathan Cha urbanologue, architecte paysagiste et docteur en aménagement de l'espace et en urbanisme, vous convie à remonter le temps pour découvrir l’histoire du quartier et de ses multiples transformations.
