Montreal Bits » Rental Apartment Buildings

Renting is popular in Montreal - in fact, about 54% of Montreal residents rent (rather than own) their apartments – a proportion higher than in almost all Norther American cities except New York.

Montrealers are lucky to have a variety of rental housing options: from high-rise rental towers to mid-rise structures to Montreal's classic "duplex" and "triplex" buildings to simple detached houses. Many 1960s and 1970s high-rises were built with an eye to maximizing the return on investment rather than comfort or aesthetics; apartments in such buildings typically have low (8') ceilings and the buildings themselves often sport a rather uninviting exterior. On the other hand, older apartments and those in low-to-mid-rise buildings often have higher ceilings (8'6" to 10'), which makes them more comfortable, more spacious, and less dependent on air conditioning in the summer. Modern buildings targeting the upper segment of the rental market also tend to give you at least 8'6" of vertical space to live in, in addition to central air-conditioning.

Montrealers have a peculiar way of referring to apartment layouts. Generally, one has to think about the number of rooms in the apartment, including the kitchen (if it's an eat-in kitchen), but counting the bathroom as only ½ of a room. The result is roughly as follows: 1½=studio, 2½=studio w/ eat-in kitchen ("bachelor"); 3½=1-bedroom, 4½=2-bedroom, etc.
