The Top 3 Montreal Neighbourhoods Perfect for Empty Nesters

Tired of life in the suburbs? Perhaps it’s time to start thinking about downsizing to a condo, especially if your children have already moved out. The good news is the property market is booming, and there are a lot of options available. Here are the top three Montreal neighbourhoods suited for empty nesters!



First on our list is Griffintown, which is Montreal’s next up-and-coming neighbourhood. Throughout the last decade, old industrial warehouses were transformed into functional modern condo towers that stretch from the Old Port to the Lachine Canal.

During the transformation, several trendy shops, cafes, and restaurants have opened up in the area, drawing the attention to the small, gentrified borough. DevMcGill’s newest project in the area is NOCA, situated in the western portion of Griffintown, where there’s less hustle and bustle and more tranquility.

The condo project overlooks the Lachine Canal and offers an abundance of green space in the heart of the city. It also boasts a range of luxurious amenities that include a gym, a rooftop pool, and a workroom. So it’s an excellent fit for those transitioning from a large house to a residential development.

Our next suggestion is the neighbourhood of Rosemont-Angus. It’s located in the eastern portion of the city and remains relatively untouched by mass property development. As a result, there are over 55 parks and recreation centres in the area, creating a balance between nature and the urban city.

The TAK Village condos will be the latest DevMcGill project in the area, and it draws inspiration from Scandinavian architecture. Although it’s not constructed yet, the development will be environmentally conscious and boast a linear park within the grounds. In addition, 40% of the project will feature lush greenery, while living in the heart of the city.

The interiors also follow the Nordic theme and provide a minimalist design, which is perfect for empty nesters looking to get rid of the clutter. This unique approach to modern architecture reflects a 21st-century mindset that’s meant to create a tranquil ambiance.

Our last choice for empty nesters is the Mile-Ex neighbourhood. Nestled between Little Italy and Parc-Extension, this district experienced rejuvenation in the early 2000s by property investors. They tore down old factories and rebuilt residential complexes from scratch, creating a dynamic living space that’s close to all the action.

Similarly to Griffintown, the area hosts some of Montreal’s finest restaurants and cafes. If you’re a foodie, you’re going to fall in love with the Mile-Ex. And, in the heart of all the action is the Ateliers Castelnau condo project.

Located right next to De Castelnau metro, the project is perfect for individuals looking to explore a calm yet trendy urban setting. While property prices are on the rise around the Mile-Ex, you can still find affordable condos in the area.
