Saint-Paul and Émard (Sud-Ouest Borough)
The City at its Best
Everyone falls under the spell of the Sud-Ouest’s friendly urban charm. Its proximity to Downtown, combined with its abundant green spaces, make it a destination of choice for many future homeowners.
Striking that fine balance between city living and tranquility, the Émard and Côte-Saint-Paul areas are increasingly attracting more young families. An affordable local real estate market and a quiet residential environment which is accessible to public transit, contribute to the borough’s attractiveness.
Lots of Greenery
The borough’s many urban redesign projects are also contributing to its renewal. These new projects add to the existing green spaces, which include a large urban park, 106 smaller parks, and 6 public gardens.
The Saint-Paul and Émard neighbourhoods are near Angrignon Park, the Lachine Canal, and the Aqueduct Canal. These calm residential areas are far from noise and traffic, but close to three metro stations: Monk, Jolicoeur, and Angrignon.
Located near the McGill University Health Centre and the West Island’s industrial hub, Côte-Saint-Paul and Émard are especially appealing to the thousands of people who work in these areas.
A stone’s throw from the action, these neighbourhoods offer easy access to the Carrefour Angrignon, the cool Wellington Promenade, and the much-loved Atwater Market.
Delicious and Fresh
A major must for Sud-Ouest foodies, the Atwater Market is especially well-known for its butchers, cheese shops, and flower vendors. In the summer, the market sells fresh produce to the delight of the thousands who come for their dose of seasonal fruits and veggies.
The old Côte-Saint-Paul village has been designated as a heritage site by the City of Montreal. The fire station, old City Hall, presbytery, Saint-Paul church, Notre-Dame-du-Saint-Rosaire boarding school, and the stone houses surrounding the church all contribute to the historic charm of this sector.
With its selection of affordable real estate, single-family homes that are close to metro stations, and quiet streets characterised by duplexes, Côte-Saint-Paul and Émard offer housing that meets the needs of a variety of homeowners.
