Le Saint Denis
Built in 1959 and located in Vanier, École Cadieux was home to thousands of young students until dwindling enrolment prompted officials at the French Catholic school board to declare it surplus and put it up for sale. In 2007, the ReDevelopment Group bought the building and converted it into 48 condo lofts and townhouses. This building is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) candidate, with a focus on building reutilization, increased energy efficiency, superior indoor air quality, and responsible greener building practices.
The building features balconies, in-suite laundry, guest parking, and storage lockers. Average listing price of the units is approximately $270,000 with some units listed at upwards of $340,000. The condominium fees range from $301.00 - $517.00 per month and include heat, water, maintenance, building insurance, and management.
