Overview

The inclined moving sidewalk inside the station.
New station entrance built in 1999 with rainbow-coloured masts over the door

Designed by Adalbert Niklewicz, it is a normal side platform station, built in-tunnel; a transept leads to a long inclined moving sidewalk, the only one of its kind in the Metro, traversing the distance between De Maisonneuve Boulevard and Saint Catherine Street, on which the entrance is located. This moving sidewalk has been a burden to the STM because it is unique and replacement parts must be custom built.

The walls in the entrance building, ticket hall, passage to the platforms, and transept area were updated in a stylish light slate blue and stainless steel scheme. The platform is covered in a cream-and-brown tile pattern, however during the renovation in 1999 part of the walls near the exits were redone in the blue tiles and stainless steel pattern.

Architecture and art

The station was renovated and partially redecorated in the Réno-Métro program in 1999. Part of this work included a large new glassed-in entrance building by Béïque, Thuot, and Legault; a unique part of its design are rainbow-coloured masts over the door, an homage to Montreal's large gay and lesbian neighbourhood, the Village (Village gai), which the station serves. These were created by Jacques Thibault.

Origin of the name

The station is named for Beaudry Street. Pierre Beaudry (1774–1848) was the landowner across whose farm the street was opened; he also donated the land on which the Saint-Pierre-Apôtre Church was built.
