Plateau continues fight over Cormier studio

This story was first reported some time ago, but now the Plateau is continuing the fight over Ernest Cormier’s studio building, which used to be more visible from the street but which you can still just see here beyond the screen of greenery. The building, zoned institutional where it sits behind the old École des Beaux-Arts building – now the OQLF headquarters – was sold off for a private residence in 2015 by the Société québécoise des infrastructures (SQI), and bought by a businessman who moved his family in. The Plateau maintains the zoning excludes this use, which it seems to me should have invalidated any sale to an individual.
