Récréathèque demolition finally underway

COVID-19 crisis or not, demolition of the old and abandoned Récréathèque in Laval’s Chomedey district is now proceeding as announced last year, to make way for an eight-storey, 347-unit residential building. Many generations of people from Laval, as well those who’ve travelled along Curé Labelle Blvd. while heading north on Route 117, have lasting memories of the Récréathèque. The new building is a project by Montreal property developer Shafiraman Weiss’s Vertex Construction.
