A local business development group in north end Montreal is hoping planting thousands of sunflowers will draw people to the Ahuntsic–Cartierville borough this summer to explore walking paths and enjoy the outdoor space.

The field of 10,000 sunflowers at the intersection of de Louvain Street West and de l’Esplanade Avenue will be dubbed La Prairie Louvain.

It’s part of a larger, five-year urban development plan unveiled Tuesday by the Société de développement commercial District Central to revitalize the area, which has long been characterized by its textile manufacturing sector, and make it more attractive to businesses and people across Montreal.

“The sunflower itself is tall, it’s resilient, it’s beautiful and it represents our neighbourhood. It celebrates the monumentality of the architecture of the area,” Elena Di Stefano, a spokesperson for the SDC District Central, told Daybreak Montreal host Sean Henry.

The sunflower field will have a clearing with outdoor furniture where people can hang out and attend events hosted by businesses and community organizations.

Carmela Cucuzzella is the Research Chair in Integrated Design and Sustainability for the Built Environment at Concordia University, where she also teaches design. She said the SDC’s plan has the potential to redefine how residents think and feel about their neighbourhood.
