Realty Bites: Le Plateau Mont Royal

The Plateau Mont-Royal is considered by many to be one of the hippest neighbourhoods in North America – where friends gather to drink, eat, attend concerts or just chill out. Culture and the arts are an integral part of its makeup and this is well reflected in its architecture. Nothing ceases to amaze me about the striking clash between contemporary and historic buildings in the Plateau. Not only is the Plateau Mont-Royal a place of great character, intellectuals and artists live here together in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

There is also a parking spot! (That’s right, ladies and gents, parking in the Plateau). You’ll never feel old by living on the bustling corner of Durocher and Milton, just next to the campus, and gladly reminisce on those days when you dreamed to become the young professional you are today.
