The bustling activity of downtown is never far from Ville-Marie’s residential areas, which contain the entire spectrum of Montreal housing types: superb Victorian homes, quiet back lanes and tall apartment buildings. The centre is Canada’s most densely populated downtown core. The former financial district is home to the best designers, a major employment hub and a key cultural centre.
This borough is always buzzing—in all spheres of activity. With the Quartier des spectacles, St. Catherine Street shops, the Quartier international, Old Montreal, the Old Port, the Gay Village, the Quartier Latin, the underground city and three leading universities, living in Ville-Marie means being at the heart of the action and surrounded by history.
