Downtown Montreal is the central business district of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is nearly enitirely located at the southernmost slope of Mount Royal (a central public park as well as a tourist attraction) and is approximately bounded by Sherbrooke Street to the north, Papineau Avenue to the east, Guy Street or until Shaughnessy Village to the west, and the Ville-Marie Expressway to the south all in direct latitude towards the Saint Lawrence River. The downtown region, as expected houses many regional,provincial and national corporate headquarters as well a large majority of the city’s skyscrapers — which, by law, cannot be greater in height than Mount Royal in order to preserve the aesthetic predominance and intimidation factor of the mountain. The two tallest of these are the 1000 de La Gauchetière and 1250 René-Lévesque, both of which were built in 1992. The Tour de la Bourse is also a significant high-rise and is home to the Montreal Exchange that trades in derivatives. The Montreal Exchange was originally a stock exchange and was the first in Canada. In 1999, all stock trades were transferred to Toronto in exchange for an exclusivity in the derivative trading market.
