Who: Restaurant and bar group A5 Hospitality, as well as architecture firms Sid Lee and Menkès Shooner Dagenais Letourneux. Canadian real estate giant Ivanhoé Cambridge owns Place Ville-Marie (as well as the Eaton Centre, Place Montréal Trust, and many more), so it’s involved on a more overarching level.

What: A mixed food hall and bar concept (it’s billed as “Le Cathcart Restaurants and Biergarten”) for Place Ville-Marie. It’ll feature nine “street food” vendors (catering to the office crowds in a more take-out style format), three restaurants (more formal, sit-down affairs), a café, and a German-style beer garden. The centrepiece will be a wooden deck with plenty of seating and greenery, and a glass ceiling above. The businesses inside are yet to be announced — some (but not all) will be run by A5 Hospitality, and there will not be any chains invited.

When: Late fall, or possibly early winter.

Where: In the basement of Place Ville-Marie — but there will be a large glass ceiling open to the plaza above, so there certainly won’t be basement food court vibes.
