The Square Children’s Advantage
Located on the corner of René-Lévesque and Atwater, on the former site of the Montréal Children’s Hospital, Square Children’s is surrounded by symbolism and history. Devimco is committed to honouring the powerful effect of community in this culturally rich neighbourhood while optimizing the mixed-use aspect of the ESTWEST project. Read up on three of the project’s main advantages below!
The ESTWEST project integrates green spaces right into the complex. With nearly 40% of the grounds dedicated to green spaces, the result is a welcoming environment that promotes relaxation and wellbeing in the heart of the city. Innovative and unique to new real estate projects in the downtown Montréal area, green spaces contribute to a budding sense of community and help breathe new life into an increasingly urban sector. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the proximity of the Lachine Canal and several spacious gardens, including the Saint-Sulpice Seminary Gardens and the Garden of the Grey Nuns: small islands of green in a bustling city.
Public transit is a way of life for many residents of downtown Montréal. More than 50% of residents use public transit, and with good reason! The ESTWEST project is located a mere 500 metres from the Atwater metro station. The Lionel-Groulx and Georges-Vanier stations are also within walking distance. The STM has several bus routes that ensure excellent service in the area. A Bixi station on the corner of Tupper and Atwater is also available for fans of the city-wide bike sharing service provided by the City.
The ESTWEST project has something for everyone, including students, young professionals and families. Colleges (Dawson, LaSalle), universities (Concordia, McGill) and several high quality private and public schools for both French and English-speaking students can be found nearby. Get everything you need only steps away at the Atwater Market, Marché Adonis, SAQ, Starbucks and Place Alexis-Nihon. And don’t forget the Canadian Centre for Architecture and the exceptional urban landscapes inherited from Montréal’s great religious congregations.
The geographical location of the ESTWEST project makes it possible to enjoy the attractions and services of the downtown Montréal area while living in a peaceful environment. The design is based on a practical and welcoming model that aims to improve quality of life. Finally, the best of both worlds!
