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.
