Lemay's smart vertical community in Montreal approaches completion

As bodies, we inhabit space, we touch space, we have a visceral experience. The Humaniti project absolutely does that.
– Andrew King

The Humaniti mixed-use complex in Montreal is approaching completion, designed by Lemay to achieve WELL Certification and to encourage its residents to interact with their living space.

Described as a smart vertical community, the 39-floor, H-shaped complex will feature apartments, a hotel, 57,000sq ft (5,300sq m) of office space and 17,000sq ft (1,600sq m) of retail and commercial space.

“The source of inspiration is really two-fold," said Andrew King, senior partner at Lemay. "In one case it was the city itself, so it was a relationship with the mountain, the views. The other inspiration was the mixed-use of the site, the fact that there was going to be housing for all kinds of people in the project.

"Architecture has a fundamental relationship with the human body. As bodies, we inhabit space, we touch space, we have a visceral experience. The Humaniti project absolutely does that. So there’s one very flat building, one medium scale building, and then this one very powerful vertical structure, and as a human you understand that relationship with your body."

There will be 150 apartments for purchase and 314 for rent, all of which will be ready to be occupied later this year.

They will feature premium finishes and abundant natural light, with residents able to access the services of the complex's Autograph Collection by Marriott boutique hotel.

Residents will also have access to two swimming pools, a fitness centre, a spa, a sky lounge and gourmet dining.

WeWork and Google Montreal are among the occupants of the building's office space.
