100+ year old house next to Martello Tower not going anywhere

Over our dead bodies! There is no way that the 100-year old residence on 390, Wilfrid-Laurier Avenue will be replaced by another condo tower.

This house is beautiful. The owner should sell it because there will be no more modifications. M. Labeaume, accompanied by the patrimony councilor, Julie Lemieux, revealed that the promoter Stephan Huot was planning to build a 12 to 14 story high condo tower right beside the Martello tower at 2, Wilfrid-Laurier Street, next to Grande-Allée.

His project is threatening a house, a former Anglican rectory built in 1877. The promoter was also trying to find someone willing to move the residence.

Even if there is a project, the house will not be destroyed and it won’t move either. The Martello tower is a national historic place. The Urbanism Commission has all the rights to preserve it.
