The Downtown Montreal area contains dozens of notable skyscrapers — which bylaws restrict to the height of Mount Royal — including the 1000 de La Gauchetière and 1250 René-Lévesque, Place Ville-Marie, which sit atop an underground shopping mall that forms the nexus of Montreal's underground city, the world's largest, with indoor access to over 1,600 shops, restaurants, offices, businesses, etc. The central axis for downtown is Saint Catherine Street, Canada's busiest commercial artery. Other major streets include Sherbrooke, René Lévesque, Peel, de la Montagne, de Maisonneuve and Crescent.
