Embrace the character of the neighbourhood.
Upper Montrose has two different street views. Montrose features traditional retail stores, while Pauline Street has four live-work units. The combination will provide a very different walkable outlook for the entire block and more opportunities for this thriving business community.
The design of Upper Montrose pulls in many historic elements that this area is made famous for. Mainly, brick and wood starts at street level, and carries throughout the upper floors, capped off with a signature roofline. The dynamic exterior of this building is attractive and functional.
