Montreal Real Estate Information - Downtown Montreal (Centre-Ville)

This area contributes the most striking elements of the dramatic Montréal skyline and contains the main railroad station, as well as most of the city's luxury and first-class hotels, principal museums, corporate headquarters, and largest department stores. Loosely bounded by rue Sherbrooke to the north, boulevard René-Lévesque to the south, boulevard St-Laurent to the east, and rue Drummond to the west, downtown Montréal incorporates the neighbourhood formerly known as "The Golden Square Mile," an Anglophone district once characterized by dozens of mansions erected by the wealthy Scottish and English merchants and industrialists who dominated the city's politics and social life well into this century. Many of those stately homes were torn down when skyscrapers began to rise here after World War II, but some remain, often converted to institutional use. At the northern edge of the downtown area is the urban campus of prestigious McGill University, which retains its Anglophone identity.
It can be divided into many sections :
the shopping district (Ste-Catherine), the business district and the hotel section (located alongside René-Levesque blvd. between du Parc Ave./Bleury street to the east and Guy street to the west), the museum district, the Golden square mile and McGill, Mont-Royal park and the "stairs" district, east downtown (Place-des-Arts and govt. buildings), the fur district, and the Shaughnessy village.
