Set at the foot of a modern and prestigious commercial complex, the Esplanade Place Ville Marie brilliantly enhances the urban experience in the downtown core. With a focus on health and wellbeing, the Esplanade’s design strives to encourage better living by providing unique, high-quality services in an iconic cultural and experiential destination.
The centrepiece of the Esplanade is an imposing glass pavilion, affording exceptional vantages of the surrounding cityscape and a visually striking entrance to an epicurean food hall and Montréal’s Underground City.
To this, add a grand staircase connecting the Esplanade to McGill College Avenue with an unfettered view of the picturesque McGill University campus.
Originally installed in 1972, Gerald Gladstone’s abstract fountain-sculpture, Female Landscape, continues to grace the Esplanade along Robert-Bourassa Boulevard.
A splendid place to meet, take a break — and admire—, eat and gather, the Esplanade Place Ville Marie is more than ever a popular urban venue thanks to a diverse program of activities scheduled throughout the year.
