Westmount Square, Wesmount, QC H3Z 2S6
The beginning of Ste. Catherine shopping features Westmount Square, a low-key yet somewhat ostentatious shopping locale better known for its food court, private clinics and Westmount spa than for its boutiques, technically located in Westmount and close to the edge of downtown.
Westmount Square is a complex of four buildings located in Westmount. The four buildings, two of which are residential, were designed by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The complex opened on December 13, 1967. It is connected to Place Alexis Nihon by a tunnel.
Westmount Square's shopping concourse houses boutiques and art galleries, with about one-third of the space reserved for private for-profit health clinics.
