I don't particularly like the location of Habitat 67. It's in the middle of nowhere. Although it's by the river, it's a long walk to downtown and the the journey to the Metro stop is not walkable in the winter. On the plus side, at least the casino is nearby.
One of the biggest problems is that it is a triumph of form over function. All these little boxes are completely exposed to the subzero cold in the winter; especially the ones with the exposed bottoms. In a climate like Montréal's it makes absolutely no sense. The floors are freezingly cold on the interior. .
