LaSalle is a station on the Green Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in the borough of Verdun, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The station opened on September 3, 1978, as part of the extension of the Green Line westward to Angrignon.
Architecture and art
Designed by Didier, Gillon et Larouche, it is a normal side platform station with one ticket hall and access. The platform and mezzanine walls are enlivened by large, irregular concrete planes painted in bright colours, designed by Michèle Tremblay-Gillon, while a stainless-steel mural by Peter Gnass above the ticket hall reflects sunlight and passengers' movements.
Origin of the name
Since the station is not located in the neighbouring borough of LaSalle, alternative names have been proposed, including Paul-Grégoire and Curé-Caisse; the latter name was approved by the Montreal Urban Community in 1984, but for unknown reasons the name change was not carried out.
