Habitat 67 is a model community and housing complex in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, designed by Israeli-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. It was originally conceived as his master’s thesis in architecture at McGill University and then built as a pavilion for Expo 67, the World’s Fair held from April to October 1967.

Located on Montreal’s Cité du Havre, a man-made peninsula created from the Montreal metro excavation, Habitat 67 enjoys incredible views of the river, Downtown Montreal and the Old Port of Montreal. Its terraces offer an unparalleled panorama of sights, sounds and smells: city lights, bridge silhouettes, river rapids, maple, oak and poplar trees, fresh river air and never-ending sky.

Located near Île Sainte-Hélène, Old Montreal and the Montreal Casino, Habitat 67 provides peace and quiet, just minutes from the bustling life of Downtown Montreal, and successfully redefines the urban living experience. At Habitat 67, you can live to the rhythm of the city with evening events and seasonal fireworks, or to the rhythm of the country on an island in the middle of a magnificent river.
