Demolished factory and its aftermath

Le Devoir reports on the demolition four years ago of older industrial buildings in Ahuntsic and how nothing’s been done with the site since then. The address is on the Main but that’s odd because the buildings never fronted on it: they were really along Louvain. If you go to this Google maps link you can see the empty space there now, and if you take it back before 2016, the buildings that are now gone.

Last summer a sort of ravey outdoor coworking and event space called Green Haüs was created on the western edge of the lot toward Esplanade, away from the area used for STM parking; their Instagram says they’ll be back in 2021.
