In 1984, Heritage Montreal, in partnership with the business community and planners, convinced major investors to hold public consultations and to revisit their project as a result. Thus McGill College Avenue — with its extraordinary view of iconic Mount Royal — was protected and enhanced. A heritage for the future.
In 2009, at the request of Heritage Montreal, Habitat 67 was classified by the Government of Quebec, following similar recognition by the City of Montreal. The residential complex, hailed worldwide for its visionary architecture, can now benefit from funding to meet the technical challenges involved in restoring it. A heritage for the future.
In 2009, Heritage Montreal persuaded foreign owners and united local partners to restore downtown Montreal’s “giant milk bottle”—the former Guaranteed Pure Milk Co. Ltd. water tower. After decades of neglect, the much-loved monument once again stands proudly against the cityscape. A heritage for the future.

A heritage for the future.
