Griffintown Rises from the Ashes...
des. 2019
Svært få mennesker er klar over at Montreal's Griffintown-området er et av de eldste nabolagene i hele Canada. Faktisk ble det først avgjort i 1654, rett vest for Gamle Montreal. På begynnelsen av 1800-tallet ble området det første bosettingsstedet for mange nye innvandrere til Canada; mest kjent fra Irland. Ved midten av det nittende århundre hadde Griffintown blitt et industrielt knutepunkt og var midt i sentrum for den industrielle revolusjonen i Montreal, Quebec og Canada. Da jeg flyttet til Griffintown i 1996, var områdets industrielle glansdager lenge over, og det var et stort sett forlatt og glemt område i Montreal, okkupert bare av noen få fastboende i mange år og en håndfull små selskaper som utnyttet lave husleier og reduserte skatter. Imidlertid kjøpte og renoverte en lokal utbygger et par av de gamle industribyggene i 2007 og omgjorde dem til industriloft i loftstil som var utstyrt med urbane hytter på taket. På grunn av sin nærhet til både sentrum av Montreal og Lachine Canal Corridor, ble konseptet raskt fanget opp med unge kjøpere, og siden har hele Griffintown-området gjennomgått en stor ombygging. Tusenvis av nye innbyggere har allerede flyttet inn i de mange nylig ferdigstilte bygningene; med befolkningen nå nærmer seg 10 000 innbyggere. Restauranter, kafeer, banker, hoteller, møbelbutikker og andre virksomheter har dukket opp for å betjene den nye befolkningen. Griffintown er et godt eksempel på et nabolag som har steget fra forsømmelsesasken til et levende og blomstrende sameie.

Griffintown is a sea of construction and development.
sep. 2021
We were on the 9th floor but still there was a lot of construction noise. The restaurants were limited. We did not see any galleries, which we expected and had to travel to downtown for better food choices. If you are going to Montreal for tourism, this is not the place to stay

Volendo arrivarci a piedi dalla città vecchia si possono percorrere indifferentemente
sia rue Notre-Dame che rue St-Jacques. E' un quartiere che io ho trovato semplicemente straordinario e tutto da scoprire. Conosciuto anche come la Piccola Borgogna, Saint-Henri e come se non bastasse Les Quartiers du Canal. Si potrebbe fare più confusione? Consigliato a tutti quelli che amano la buona cucina, o andare per botteghe d'antiquariato.

Griffintown Rises from the Ashes...
des. 2019
Very few people realize that Montreal’s Griffintown area is one of the oldest neighborhoods in all of Canada. In fact, it was first settled in 1654, just west of Old Montreal. In the early 1800s, the area became the first-settlement point for many new immigrants to Canada; most notably from Ireland. By the mid-nineteenth century, Griffintown had become an industrial hub and was right at the center of the industrial revolution in Montreal, Quebec, and Canada. By the time I moved to Griffintown in 1996, the area’s industrial glory days were long over, and it was a largely abandoned and forgotten area of Montreal, occupied only by a few longtime residents and a handful of small companies taking advantage of low rents and reduced taxes. However, in 2007 a local developer bought and renovated a couple of the old industrial buildings and converted them into industrial loft-style condominiums outfitted with rooftop urban chalets. Due to its close proximity to both downtown Montreal and the Lachine Canal Corridor, the concept quickly caught on with young buyers, and since then the entire Griffintown area has been undergoing major redevelopment. Thousands of new residents have already moved into the many recently completed buildings; with the population now approaching 10,000 residents. Restaurants, cafes, banks, hotels, furniture stores, and other businesses have sprung up to service the new population. Griffintown is a good example of a neighborhood that has risen from the ashes of neglect to a vibrant and flourishing condominium community.

Mérite une visite
sep. 2019
C'est un quartier très tendance, avec ses grandes qualités et ses gros défauts.
Les défauts d'abord: beaucoup de tape-à-l'oeil (restaurants et autres commerces), des condos qui ont poussé comme de la mauvaise herbe un peu partout, pas d'école, pas assez d'espaces verts.
Maintenant, les qualités: plusieurs très très bons restaurants, pas tous trop chers (essayez la crêperie Spanel, par exemple), des galeries d'art qui sortent des sentiers battus (visitez la galerie d'art et le Café Lali, angle Notre-Dame et des Seigneurs), un café-librairie caché à la vue (Chez L'Éditeur), encore quelques antiquaires, des ruelles vertes, un grand magasin d'occasion de l'Armée du Salut, etc.

sep. 2017 • Venner
This is a fun neighborhood to explore. It is a mix of new and old parts.

Great restaurants, mix of shops to explore. Great small parks.

And most of all the Canal to walk along with amazing views of the City and Griffintown

Evolving and Full Of Surprises
mar. 2016 • Alene
Griffintown is Montreal's newly evolving neighborhood and has got plenty of surprises in store. Whether you choose to walk on major streets like Wellington, Notre Dame or around the Lachine area of the hood, you'll find something or the other to do. It's a peaceful yet energetic and has more to offer as the days go by. It's a place where you'll find graffiti art, heavy construction, and also quaint cafes, restos and bars. It's a photographer's paradise and perfect for a day out :)

Fun young hipster neighborhood
I stayed in an air bnb in Griffintown with a couple friends for a long weekend and the area was really cool. If I had to relate it to anywhere else, it's the Brooklyn of Montréal. Lots of converted industrial buildings that now house cool loft style apartments, cafes, restaurants and bars all full with a young adult crowd.

We eat at one of the more upscale reasturants in the neighborhood and it was clear that the city was already hip to this up and coming area because the place was packed. We also sampled a couple of the cafes and really had nothing to complain about, food and coffee were tasty and the people were nice (in both French and English lol).

For me, Griffintown is not the best part of Montréal but it is the perfect place to set up home base. It's a close walk or cab to other parts of the city and you get to feel like more of a local by staying there. There is a cool outdoor market as well so you can stock up on fresh fruits, snacks or dinner supplies and not feel like you were in any old super market.

I will definitely stay in this neighborhood again next time I visit.
