Abandoned for seven years, the building that once housed the W.E. Bégin butcher shop will become a four-storey luxury condo building.

After seven years of uncertainty, the former Boucherie W.E. Bégin building on Rue Saint-Jean, at the corner of Rue Sainte-Claire, will be demolished, starting this month.

The abandoned building, more of nostalgic value than historic, will be replaced by 10 luxury co-property units, called 500 Saint-Jean, which the promoter says will be available for occupancy by the end of this year.
