Convent conversion approved after consultation

The city consultation office says local residents have given the nod to the conversion of the massive convent of the Soeurs de Sainte-Anne in Lachine for the housing of seniors, with other changes such as opening the chapel to the public. A few adjustments have been made in the original plan to preserve the heritage value of the property. Good on the nuns for not selling out for immediate condo conversion.

Update: More details on the plans in the Gazette.
