Located in the Cité-du-Havre, a century-old artificial peninsula enlarged for Expo 67, Habitat 67 benefits from an incomparable geographical location: in front of the river, downtown and the Old Port of Montreal.

Its terraces offer an unparalleled panorama: city lights, the silhouette of the bridges, the beauty of the maples, oaks and poplars. Add to this idyllic atmosphere the gentle sound of the river and the famous Habitat 67 wave, the sea air and the sky as far as the eye can see. Located near St. Helen’s Island, Old Montreal and the Casino de Montreal, this hybrid of quiet and hectic living redefines the urban residential experience with panache.
