A remarkable complex

The garden path

Cours Le Royer was doubtless the largest commercial complex built near the Port during Montréal's industrialization phase. Erected in stages from a design by architect Victor Bourgeau, the building replaced Montréal's first hospital, founded by Jeanne Mance in 1644.
Its transformation in the late 1970s from warehouses into apartments, offices and high-end commercial space, with its central garden walkway, makes it the first large-scale example in Montréal of how old commercial buildings can be recycled.
