Plateau loosens business regulations on St-Denis

Plateau borough is loosening business regulations on St-Denis, intending to reduce the number of empty storefronts. A denser number of bars will be allowed, and new rules may make more Airbnb conversions possible – even, it sounds like, on the ground floor, which I think would be a mistake.

Discussions are even being held in St-Léonard over Jean-Talon East, which has also been suffering from empty storefront syndrome.
