Since the inception of the Mont-Royal industrial park over half a century ago, numerous decor and design companies chose this location due to its proximity to the downtown core.
This spontaneous concentration of companies prompted local businesses and the municipality to form a structured collaboration known as the Quartier Design Royalmount. The purpose of this initiative is to:
- Strategically position the sector as a prime destination for interior design;
- Promote the specialized expertise and skills of local businesses;
- Foster an environment for renewal and revitalization.
As a result, there has been significant growth and urban renewal in this district. New businesses and investments have sprouted from the original core. Older buildings are being renovated and upgraded to modern architectural standards while maintaining their historical features.
The doors to Quartier Design Royalmount stores are open to the public to encourage the discovery of exceptional quality, innovation and variety. Stores are located within walking distance of each other and parking is free for a pleasant shopping experience.
By meeting the needs of consumers, artisans, designers and importers, we are also meeting our goal of being a true destination for design in Montreal.
