Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges
The main shopping street on the east side of the borough, where local residents, students and tourists mingle. The section between Chemin Queen-Mary and Rue Jean-Talon has lots to enjoy, whether you want to stop for a bite to eat, study, shop, visit one of its two libraries, or relax at Martin Luther King Park.
Avenue Victoria’s restaurants perfume the air from the Plamondon subway station at one end to the Côte-Sainte-Catherine subway station at the other. The food is as full of variety as the many ethnic communities that call the area home.
Université de Montréal, HEC and École Polytechnique form the epicentre of Montréal’s francophone academic community. These institutions, located on and around Chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine and Boulevard Édouard-Montpetit, attract an international clientele. Their students energize the neighbourhood’s main commercial artery: the effervescent Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges.
Le Triangle – Mountain Sights
The Le Triangle neighbourhood, bordered by Rue Jean-Talon on the south, Boulevard Décarie on the west and the Town of Mount Royal on the north-east, is constantly changing. It’s a new neighbourhood established around the Namur subway station and based on Transit-Oriented Development, an urban planning approach that includes many sustainable development precepts.
The neighbourhood around Monkland Avenue is called a village by its residents. The shopping district running from Girouard to Grand Boulevard showcases a variety of businesses: cafés, restaurants with patios, aesthetics, clothing, and more. The area also displays distinctive architecture, with its red brick homes ornamented with large wooden porches.
In a residential neighbourhood in the Loyola district, the west part of the borough, you can find an impressive building with Scottish architecture: the former Loyola College, an educational establishment that was run by the Jesuits. Today, it is a campus of Concordia University, one of the top English-language academic institutions in Quebec.
Benny Farm, a neighbourhood with a strong community history, arose when housing was built for returning World War II veterans and their families. The area is a hub for neighbourhood activities and services: it has schools, sports facilities, grocery stores, a CLSC, a library, and other cultural facilities.
