Montreal Neighbourhoods at a Glance
Exploring Old Montreal means virtually exploring an outdoor museum of Victorian and Neo-Classical architecture, monuments and detailing 350 years of history in Montreal. The area has a 17th-century European flavor that is unique in North America.
Bordered by ave. McGill on the west, rue St. Antoine on the north, rue Berri on the east and rue de la Commune on the south, Old Montreal is a vital part of the city.
Housing in Old Montreal comes from the historical buildings that characterize this urban area, one of the oldest on the continent. Major renewal programs in the 1990s resurrected its commercial and residential life while protecting its heritage.
Newly renovated studio lofts of all sizes, as well as luxurious Old Montreal apartments and condos, now occupy many of the original limestone structures and offer modern comforts while preserving the neighbourhood’s old-world charm.
The quieter areas off of rue St-Pierre are also slowly being converted to accommodate high-tech firms while former warehouses have been transformed into luxurious inner-city housing.
