Christ Church Cathedral - Montreal
Christ Church Cathedral is an Anglican Gothic Revival cathedral.
Address: 635 Saint Catherine Street West, downtown Montreal.
Originally built in 1859, the Christ Church Cathedral was the first church in Montreal to re-invent itself to fit into its modern day setting. In the 1980s, a huge real estate project was undertaken: an underground parking and a shopping mall that would house two levels of shops underneath the cathedral. In addition to that, a 34 floor skyscraper was to be built just north of the church, as part of the complex. Throughout the duration of the construction, the Cathedral had to be supported on stilts. We, Montrealers used to refer to it as the "Cathedral on stilts". Completed the same year, the Promenade de la Cathedrale was opened to the public... a four-level project that connected the mall under the church to Montreal's "Underground City".
