Live in Montreal in the heart of Westmount

Montreal is an island in the river. It’s also a warm and cosmopolitan city with abundant flavours and green spaces, and welcomes people from all over the world. It’s a great place to live, eat and have fun. Westmount is a small town within this metropolis, on the southwest side of Mount Royal.

Westmount is located in the south-central part of the island and is surrounded by downtown, the river, the canal and the mountain and has pretty streets adorned with Victorian and Neo-Tudor residential architecture. It’s a place where you’ll love to walk, meet people and enjoy your activities.

Westmount is near Old Montreal, the Plateau and several other central neighbourhoods, so you’ll have access to the best of Montreal life.

Enjoy Mount Royal and the surrounding nature

Mount Royal, the island's one and only mountain, and the city's largest park, is right next to your building. Magnificent, isn't it? There’s a small urban forest ready to welcome you for long walks, bike rides, picnics, winter slides, and more.

Of course, living on an island the size of Montreal means that the water is never far away. At the Plaza Tower, you’re near the Saint-Lawrence, but also near the Lachine Canal, with its linear green park where you can practice water sports, such as kayaking.

In short, nature and rivers aren’t far from your apartment in the city. Some apartments and the shared terrace provide a breathtaking view of the city, the mountain and the river.

Shop and taste the city life like never before

Living in the city means benefitting from an incredible choice of places to escape, have fun, savour food and shop, all in the heart of this Quebec metropolis.

Adjacent to the Plaza Tower, Alexis Nihon is a shopping centre with nearly 100 shops and services for all your daily needs. From clothing, food, hardware, electronics, and hairdressing, you can find it all. During the winter, there’s no need to go out into the cold to get there. You just have to go through the interior corridor that connects the tower to the shopping centre. This is great when it's -20 or stormy.

Nearby is famous rue Sainte-Catherine, the central commercial artery of Montreal, where you can take a leisurely stroll to shop among the terraces, cafés, restaurants and theatres.

Next to the canal, a little further south of the area, is one of the most beautiful art deco buildings in the city, the Marché Atwater. Visit this place known for its gourmet discoveries and stock up on local products during both summer and winter, either indoors or in the open air.
