These twin towers, with tinted blue glass curtain-walls, form a stunning modern complex. The set of statues are very thought provoking and are cleverly entitled “The Illuminated Crowd” by artist Raymond Mason.

This is the most unique set of statues that I've ever seen. They really stuck out the first time I saw them when it was dark and rainy.

The longer you stare at this sculpture, the more you discover. The figures are expressing all types of emotion. It is made by Raymond Mason. from polyester with polyurethane paint, that reflects light in the dark. A must see.

The architecture of these buildings are impressive. It looks like several scyscrapes has been put together into one single building. Way different from the other scyscrapes in the city. In the front there is a white sculpture of different men and women together. Don't miss.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
