Mackay St. project “on hold”

Two weeks after announcing a narrowing of a block of Mackay St. next to Concordia University’s Hall Building as the triumphant accomplishment of the mythical “Greening of Mackay” project, Concordia University has stepped back a bit in the face of protest from neighbours and has put the project “on hold.”

Concordia’s announcement said it would be reviewed “over the next few months,” which I can only guess means it’s not going to happen this summer at all.

That’s unfortunate.

Of course, with all the construction going on in that area as Concordia builds a new tunnel from the Hall Building to the Guy-Concordia métro station (and its new buildings next to it), people probably wouldn’t have noticed a further narrowing of the street anyway.
