Montreal's buildings and walls are alive with vibrancy and colour, a sensory experience created by the many murals and pieces of street art found in the city's streets. Walking about Montreal is the only way to feel the energy of the city's urban art, until now, as Parc Cité brings the magic of Montreal's murals right into your home.

Parc Cité, located at 3440 Avenue du Parc is an off-campus student residence, has done things a little differently. Rather than just re-purpose an old hotel and change some decorations around, Parc Cité has given a mural-makeover to the entire residency, as local Montreal artists have adorned almost every wall with works of street art.

Montreal's unique outdoor urban-art culture is embodied in Parc Cité, only indoors, creating a student living space unlike any other in the city. Add the artistic atmosphere to the high speed 'net, 24 hour fitness center, mass amounts of study rooms, state of the art laundry facilities, and dining, room, and 24hr customer service and you'll see why we're pretty pumped about how Parc Cité is doing things differently.

Parc Cité didn't always look this way though. Jason Botkin, curator of EN MASSE, a homegrown creative- artistic project is the man behind the buildings' totally refurnished walls. You might recognize EN MASSE's artistic style from various city- wide projects such as at Osheaga, Cabaret Underworld, the Eaton Centre and Divan Orange.

Any student can live at Parc Cité and appreciate street art and nearly every convenience on the daily. McGill and Concordia campuses are very close by, but so are cafés, grocery stores, the metro, and the downtown core, so any student can see the perks of living at Parc Cité.

Art truly does set Parc Cité apart from the other student residences in Montreal, so take a look at the pics below to get a sense of all the cool visuals, facilities, and rooms you'll enjoy while living at Parc Cité.
