A revitalized Place Bethune recently reopened on de Maisonneuve Boulevard near Guy-Concordia metro and the university’s downtown campus after a long period of construction. The space, a city project created in close collaboration with the university, adds a little greenspace to the concrete jungle downtown. It includes a group of benches as well as stonework and lampposts which are unique to the square.
Most noticeably, the space includes a large statue of the letter “C”. According to Concordia University representative Chris Mota the stylized “C” will be cropping up on three or four corners downtown, all of which will eventually include a campus map acting as a wayfinder or a marker letting people know where they are on campus.
