While, since I'm a graduate since April 2007 (and thus why I've taken an extended period off to relax myself) thus not seeing much of the evolution of the major projects, I''m wondering how the projects are fairing there right now. I know that prior to when I've finished in April, there was the construction of the new building housing the Industrial Relations faculty as well as the expansion of the Library at the Tache campus. Future plans included to merge both Gatineau campuses to the main one on Tache near the Place du Parc project and would include multiple buildings for the Lucien- Brault campus faculties (administration, finances, computer sciences, etc.) as well as a soccer field, the extension of the Saint-Joseph Boulevard and potentially a western expansion of the Rapibus from the terminal that will be in the eastern edge of the Tache campus.

I drove by there on Sunday, looks like the expansion is close to being finished.

What will happen to the Lucien-Brault campus once everything is consolidated?

Il semble avoir entendu que possiblement le governement fédéral pourrait s'en servir - mais il y a encore plusieurs années avant que (si) la fusion des deux campus se réalise. complètement.

Still not moving as far as funding is concern from the city. Council is divided on the funding of between 6 to 10 million to the University, most notably on the extension of Saint-Joseph Boulevard

Rendering of the soccer field. You can also see the rendering of a couple of the buildings behind.

Yep, I was wondering what those two buildings were on the end of the soccer pitch. I can't quite orient myself with this rendering.. are the buildings right at the end of St-Joseph?

Yeah it would have helped if they would include the existent UQO buildings on the rendering. I've thought though the proposed field would be behind the campus. But the empty lot appears to be the cemetery, so you might right the buildings might be at the end of St-Joseph and that means right beside the future Rapibus end

Also, the tallest building looks at least 10 stories, but I may over-estimate this. The highest proposed I've heard would be in the six-storey ish.

After much figuring I have this mess sorted out.


The Streets hitting the top of the picture are left to right

Chateaubriand, Viger, Boucherville, Scoot, St. Joesph

The background horizontal one is Alexandre-Tache

The corner of the existing buildings appears in the top left corner.

Seems St-Joseph will pass right under the walkway connecting the two buildings, the bottom-left corner might be the possible Aylmer extension to the Rapibus or the bike path or another access route.

I've been trying to figure out what the U-shaped (U for university?) building over St-Joseph reminded me of.

Now I think I've got it:

This image is on the Place du Parc Condo website - it looks a little different than the info07 image..

Am I the only one to find odd that, other than crossing a parking lot/rodway, there seems to be no dedicated pedestrian linkage between the new buildings on the right-hand side and the existing UQO buildings on the left?

Have heard that they will start construction for the soccer field/stadium pretty soon.

Any idea how many seats the stadium will have.

''Stadium'' may have been too strong a term. There are no stands planned for the UQO artificial soccer field at this point. Just lights.

The City of Gatineau has actually put in a new artificial sports surface and upgraded the stands at what is known as the Stade Mont-Bleu near the high school which bears the same name off Cité-des-Jeunes. It has a capacity of about 2,000 and will be used for events during the Jeux du Québec summer games which will be held in Gatineau during the summer of 2010.
