Toronto Will Soon Have It's Own Montreal-Style "Habitat '67" Building

But although the wooden aspect of this building is cool. What we were really excited about is the fact that this building has been inspired from, and modeled after Montreal's famous Habitat '67.

It's called the Toronto Tree Tower Project, and once it's completed it will be the most environmentally-friendly and sustainable piece of architecture in the world.

I may be deemed a traitor for saying this, but it might actually be cooler than Habitat '67
