Habitat '67 is truly a one-of-a-kind landmark in Montreal’s man-made peninsula, Cité du Havre. Widely regarded as one of Canada’s most spectacular buildings, this simple, modern architectural marvel is composed purely of modular units. 354 modules were stacked on one another to create 148 homes, placed among sculptural futuristic interiors, suspended terraces, vast aerial spaces, bright skylights, sprawling esplanades and statuesque elevator pillars.
Habitat '67 redefines quality of life in an urban environment by rethinking residential space. Originally conceived as part of Moshe Safdie’s McGill University thesis for Expo ’67, the building was intended to challenge the function of architecture in a high-density urban setting. More than an inspirational wonder, Habitat '67 is a coveted residential building. Residents here enjoy sweeping views of the river, downtown Montreal and the Old Port. Each terrace offers different sights of the city paired with the surrounding natural beauty of the river, forests, and fresh island air.
A peaceful pause just minutes from busy downtown Montreal, Habitat '67 stands near Île Sainte-Hélène, Old Montreal and the Montreal Casino. Each day offers a new choice between the vibrance of the city or the calm of a river island. Meant to build community within the urban hustle, the nearby tennis clubs, walking paths, bicycle paths, and parks all contribute to the livability of the complex. Within, a concierge, washer and dryer service, and drycleaner service support the needs of residents. A private shuttle bus takes passengers between the complex and downtown Montreal six days a week.
Habitat '67 is a monument to modern architecture, the choice residence for those who desire to strike the perfect balance of urban lifestyle.
