This historic place is valued as part of a larger context represented by the community of Maillardville and its deep associations with the French Canadian roots of its early residents. An unusual characteristic of this place is the placement of the street grid, which features a cross-axis centred on the church square of Notre Dame de Lourdes; this layout is without precedent in Western Canada.

The street placement results in buildings often as the termination point of several street vistas in Maillardville. As well, it creates shorter blocks that reinforce the street-lane-street pattern. In current day Maillardville, Laval Square is the proposed location of the Place Maillardville Community Centre, which reflects its suitability as a cultural and social gathering place for the community.
