In 2000, under the new Loria ownership, a new version of Labatt Park was unveiled. The park was designed by Provencher Roy + Associes Architectes and was to be located at the same block bounded by rues St. Jacques, Peel, Notre-Dame, and de la Montagne. The park had a more modern, “steel and glass” design as opposed to the 1998 design’s brick exterior. The park would have seated 36,287 fans. The project was delayed by funding issues and ultimately died with the Expos move to Washington.
