dc.descriptionGeneral view along the west side of the square, looking southeast; Victoria Square (officially square Victoria) is a town square in the Quartier international de Montréal (also called the International District) area of Montreal, Quebec, Canada at the intersection of Beaver Hall Hill and McGill Street. The square has existed since 1813. It was renamed for Queen Victoria for the visit of then-Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) Previously a simple empty area, Victoria Square was renovated to its current configuration in 2002 and 2003. It features Hector Guimard's Art Nouveau outdoor entrance to the Square-Victoria Metro station [a gift from France], a statue of Queen Victoria, and trees lining its bounding avenues. The square is now fronted on the east by the CDP Capital Centre, the Montreal World Trade Centre and the W Montréal, to the west by Tour de la Bourse and Place de la Cité internationale, and to the south by the Quebecor building, its outdated façade fully redesigned for the occasion.
