Habitat 2.0: BIG unveils new condo complex for Toronto that rises like a ziggurat

The dramatic Habitat 2.0 proposal draws inspiration from Moshe Sadie’s Habitat 67, a similarly experimental and blocky housing complex in Montreal that’s also widely revered as a major architectural landmark. Commissioned by developers Westbank and Allied REIT, BIG’s high-density design would comprise 725,000 square feet and over 500 one to three-bedroom apartment units.

Most units will also have access to private landscaped terraces.
