A wide range of housing options
Modern and progressive, Longueuil boasts a stimulating, welcoming, family-friendly living environment. The availability of diverse types of housing makes it one of the most welcoming cities in the Greater Montréal area.
Thanks to the unique character of each of its boroughs, Longueuil’s many neighbourhoods cater to a wide range of housing and lifestyle choices. With its diverse housing options that include heritage buildings, prestige homes, condos and bungalows, in quiet parkland locations or at the heart of the action, Longueuil has something for everyone.
Quality of life
Two provincial parks, a downhill ski resort, magnificent nature parks, a golf course, a vast network of bike paths, a rich heritage dating back more than 360 years, and a flourishing cultural scene contribute to Longueuil’s vitality.
In addition, there are two school boards, 50 elementary schools, 13 high schools, four vocational colleges, one Cégep, 6 private schools, and 6 universities.
Rue Saint-Charles is particularly well-located and serves as a link between three major sectors: Place Charles-Le Moyne, the Roland-Therrien hub, and the downtown core. As the main artery of the Vieux-Longueuil district, it attracts residents from all over the city as well as visitors from elsewhere. This urban sector stands out for its arts scene, inviting public areas and alluring green spaces.
Parc St. Mark, the Maison de la culture and the Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue co-cathedral all testify to Longueuil’s long history on a street that remains as lively as ever. With its distinctive, specialized retail offerings, its high concentration of professional and institutional services, its wide variety of high-quality restaurants, and its year-round calendar of engaging cultural events, rue Saint-Charles is a delightful combination of gourmet pleasures, cultural diversity, history and heritage buildings.
