The Gare du Palais construction site is getting busy!
Major renovations are in progress.
In Quebec City, work has begun on the Gare du Palais. Phase 1, which is currently underway, includes the partial repair of the exterior masonry, the repair of the copper roofs, the replacement of the heritage wooden doors and windows, among others.
Plans and specifications for the more extensive Phase 2 are currently being developed. This phase involves incorporating a new rainwater management system, replacing the metal heritage windows, restoring the exterior and interior masonry, the copper roof of the central wing and its skylights, the exterior glass roof, the clock, the marquee, the interior heritage finishes, and a partial upgrade of the building.
Built in 1915, the Gare du Palais was designated as a "heritage railway station" by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada on June 4, 1992. Designed by architect Harry Edouard Prindel in the Château de la Loire style, this station is a landmark in the urban landscape of Quebec City.
