Montreal

10 of 15

What PPS Says: Montreal’s historic and still
bustling Old Port district flows onto spacious, formerly industrial piers. The
park paths connect destinations with restaurants and flexible programmed
spaces.

What We Like: When Montreal’s new port facilities opened in
the 1970s, an exodus of residents left the old port dark and dangerous. Today,
the old city has been reinvented as a design destination and has taken its
place as the true heart of Montreal. Tourists beeline to the port, eager to
explore the oldest urban area in North America (and eat French food), while
locals bike, boat, ice-skate along the port and its canals, and browse the
160-year-old Bonsecours Market.
