Many Montrealers might have heard of Chelsea Place, but they might not actually be able to put a finger on its location, unless they know someone who actually lives, or has lived there.
Tucked away on the east side of Simpson Street, between Dr. Penfield and Sherbrooke West, it would be easy to drive past the gated courtyard and its English-style townhouses and pristine landscaping without even noticing it.
Chelsea Place is an architectural and residential treasure that makes living in downtown Montreal’s architectural mélange such a cool thing. It is a diverse style of living, a survivor from a past era, in comparison to the modern condominiums and apartments that dot the area.
Built in 1923, on the heels of the revolutionary Art Deco era, this sanctuary of 17 residences is downtown luxury living at its best. To own a residence in the complex is akin to owning a full-fledged home in the heart of the city.
