Canada Lands acquired the Pointe-du-Moulin site in 2010 from Transport Canada. The property includes Silo 5 and is part of Rue Mill.
The Pointe-du-Moulin pier is one of Montréal’s most prominent sites with a surface area of 7.3 hectares (18.9 acres). Dominating the Old Port of Montréal skyline with its considerable height and volume, Pointe-du-Moulin’s structures are a reminder of the significant industrial activity that once characterized the city’s waterfront. With its large silo, docks, marine towers and conveyors, Pointe-du-Moulin is an important industrial heritage site. Additionally, the Pointe-du-Moulin area is a key link between the Old Port of Montréal and Parks Canada’s Lachine Canal National Historic Site.
As part of its redevelopment of Pointe-du-Moulin, the Company’s primary goal in its redevelopment is to contribute to Montreal’s growth and reputation while also commemorating the heritage of this historical site. In 2019, the Company announced the launch of a request for proposals process to revitalize and transform Pointe-du-Moulin and that process is ongoing.
