Little Burgundy is bordered by a quadrangle formed by the Lachine Canal, Atwater Avenue, the Ville Marie expressway and Guy Street. It is located in the borough South-west. The district is surrounded by Ville-Marie, Griffintown, Pointe-Saint-Charles and Saint-Henri.
Historically significant because of its black anglophone community, Little Burgundy has preserved its multicultural flair, with 49% of inhabitants belonging to a visible minority. This neighbourhood has always been home to many apartments. However, several significant events such as the reopening of the Lachine Canal, the revitalization of the Atwater Market, and the expansion of the Ecole de Technologie Superieure engineering school have breathed new life into the area. Many condo projects have also developed, ones that are sure to appeal to young people wanting to live near the Lachine Canal and downtown.
An erstwhile industrial area, Little Burgundy suffered greatly due to the deindustrialization of the Lachine Canal. However, since the early 2000's, the neighbourhood has been born again, some even speaking of gentrification.
