409 Saint Nicolas Street


Small commercial building with all of the attributes sought by lovers of Old Montreal: stone and brick walls, skylights, wood floors and a mezzanine on the top floor. The south façade, overlooking Saint-Paul street, was designed by the famous architect John Ostell, who designed the old Montreal Courthouse. Made of carved stone flanked by pilasters and cast-iron architectural elements, the façade was preserved when the building was altered circa 1900.
