LaSalle is a station on the Montreal Metro on the Green Line, located in the borough of Verdun. It was inaugurated on September 3, 1978, as part of the extension of the Green Line westward to Angrignon.
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
This station is named for boul. LaSalle, named for explorer Robert Cavelier de La Salle (1643–1687, who founded the town of Lachine and claimed Louisiana for France.
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.
