Boulevard Avenue is a terrace of houses running between St Aubin's Road and Victoria Avenue. The surrounding area, about half way between First Tower and Millbrook, has come to be known as Le Boulevard. One of the houses in the terrace was home to the Millbrook telephone exchange in the early days of telephones in Jersey, until it was absorbed into the central exchange in 1960
