Designed by Crevier, Lemieux, Mercier and Caron, it is a normal side-platform station built in open cut under boul. De Maisonneuve, with two ticket halls joined by corridors that surround the platforms. The ticket halls are linked to the platforms by four stairways per platform, including the shortest escalators in the network. The station has large pillars, which were originally painted orange, but painted in their present blue-greenish color in the late 90's. For other meanings of the term, see column (disambiguation). ...


As an important part of the underground city, the station has had its mezzanine level substantially enlarged since its opening, by construction of new buildings around the station: the western end of the mezzanine was added with the construction of the Tour BNP and Eaton Centre, while the southern corridor between the ticket halls was added to link the Promenades de la Cathédrale with the station. Montreals underground city (French: La ville souterraine) is the well-known underground city complex in downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ...


No fewer than six buildings are directly connected to the station via underground city, and one, the Eaton Centre, has an entrance directly on the Honoré-Beaugrand platform. (Another access to 2020 de Maisonneuve from the Angrignon platform has been closed.) The station has a further six direct street-level entrances, all of which are integrated into the façades of other buildings.


Among this busy station's amenities are several shops and services directly in the station, a web terminal, and MétroVision information screens (the second station after Berri-UQAM to have them installed). Berri-UQAM Berri-UQAM is the central station of the Montreal Metro, located in the Quartier Latin in the borough of Ville-Marie. ...


This station contains a large number of artworks. The most prominent is Nicolas Sollogoub's Montreal Scenes Circa 1830, depicting the industrial era in the city as well as its early mayors and civic arms. This set of five stained-glass murals was donated by MacDonald Tobacco. Maurice Savoie created a set of terra cotta murals depicting fruit and flowers, surrounding the entrance to Eaton's (now Les Ailes de la Mode). The construction of the Promenades de la Cathédrale in 1992 brought two new works of art, a light sculpture called Passūs by Murray MacDonald, and an installation of an aerial view of Montreal complete with miniature figures of the buildings, by art collective Les Industries perdues. The latter work is entitled To rise, we must push against the ground onto which we have fallen. Terra cotta is a hard semifired waterproof ceramic clay used in pottery and building construction. ... Eatons was once Canadas largest department store retailer. ...


Finally, a tapestry by Kelvin McAvoy depicting the life of James McGill was donated by Canadian Universal Limited Insurance in 1969; however, after being vandalized, it was removed by the company for restoration, and then given as a perpetual loan to McGill University instead, where it is now exhibited at the MacLennan Library.
