is famous as one of the last works of German Architect
Ludwig 'Mies' Van der Rohe. Westmount Square it a
landmark in Westmount and Donwtown Montreal and is a
sought after building to live in thanks to its easy
access to its own shopping mall and surrounding
buisinesses including the boutiques of Greene Ave.

Nihon which is a large Shopping mall on Atwater. This
tunnel also leads to the Atwater metro or subway.

equity share so a mortgage over 70% is difficult, nigh
impossible to achieve.

the river and the South West as well as Downtown
Montreal and Mountain views (the 'Mountain' is the
Mont-Royal hill which is Montreal's most prominent
landmark). Due to its age, many of the units have
undergone substantial renovations and upgrades.
Originally there were laundry rooms on every floor but
gradually new residents have been installing their own
washer/dryer units for greater convenients. Its
amenities include a swimmin pool, a gym...

bedroom units start just under $600,000 and rise to over
one million dollars.
