SOUTH-WEST

Discover the South-West (Sud-Ouest) neighbourhood.

The borough is particularly large and has many neighbourhoods: Côte-Saint-Paul, Little Burgundy and Ville-Émard, three of which date back to the 17th century (Griffintown, Saint-Henri and Pointe Saint-Charles). A place of effervescence, the borough attracts ideas and desires. In the midst of a real estate boom, it attracts residents with a wide variety of tastes and aspirations.

The South-West borough is located - as its name suggests - southwest of downtown Montreal. It is surrounded by the boroughs of Ville-Marie (northeast), Verdun (south), LaSalle (west), Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (northwest) and the city of Westmount (north). It runs along the St. Lawrence River and several bridges connect it to major arteries: the Victoria Bridge (R-112), the Nuns' Island Bridge (A-15, A-20) and the Clément Bridge (A-10).

EFFERVESCENCE AND WELL-BEING

Just steps away from downtown, the borough welcomes young professionals as well as families and couples without children. The parks, recreation centers and numerous neighbourhood schools make it a pleasant and safe place for families.  Families enjoy recreational facilities such as the Centre sportif de la petite Bourgogne, the Maison de la culture Marie-Uguay, the Gadbois recreational complex and the Arsenal Montréal contemporary art center. Notre-Dame, Saint-Jacques, Saint-Antoine, Wellington, Monk streets... are scenes of life where people meet to telework, relax, explore with a sense of curiosity and conviviality. Students from the École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) mingle with professionals and artists. A place of effervescence, it's a great place to work and play.

THE ATTRACTION OF THE LACHINE CANAL

Irresistible Lachine Canal! This area along the waterfront where walkers, cyclists, sailors, rowers and canoeists gather. In a decade, huge towers of magnificent light-filled condos have sprung up next to each other facing the Canal, with balconies and windows. The Lachine Canal has a lot to offer: it is an invitation to take long walks, to share a drink in a barge transformed into a bar, to take a boat to sail on the St. Lawrence River or the Lachine Canal, to do outdoor exercises... The Atwater Market is the other big gathering place for the 72,000 or so residents, around the stalls of fruit and vegetable growers and local specialties. In addition, the borough is well served by seven metro stations and numerous bus routes.

BETWEEN ANTIQUE SHOPS AND STARTUPS

Between art galleries, café terraces, innovation centers, sports centers and architectural firms, Griffintown is a lively neighborhood, as historical as it is creative and technological. Little Burgundy is the place where jazz first flourished in Montreal. The long-disadvantaged industrial district of Saint-Henri is undergoing a major redevelopment, converting old factories into service businesses. Office towers juxtapose warehouses converted into galleries or boutiques. Surprisingly, historic buildings and brand new ones are well orchestrated in the space. The old meets the ultra-modern. Antique shops and startups are neighbors. Each evolves in a heterogeneous atmosphere.
