Three and a half years after the Manoir Montefiore closed as a seniors residence, the highrise at the corner of Cavendish and Mackle will be transformed into a residential apartment building.
Jadco, the company behind the Équinoxe project on Marc Chagall, purchased the property from Réseau Selection. They will be granted a permit to proceed with renovations since there are no zoning changes requested nor is the façade being altered.
The timing, of course, is not ideal. Excavation work will begin soon followed by as much as an 18-month construction period for the second Equinoxe building.
There are presently 130 units in the Montefiore building. Jadco has proposed 94 units for their rejigged project – 43 one bedroom and and 51 two bedrooms. The area of these units are conforming to the city by-law. There will be about 90 interior parking spaces, including 14 new ones to be constructed in what is now a dining area. In addition, an outdoor lot will accommodate 23 more vehicles.
I will provide more news as it becomes available.
