Inauguration of Quebec's largest apartment building dedicated to the fight against homelessness
The SHDM is proud to announce the opening of the Le Christin building, with Accueil Bonneau. The inauguration took place this morning, in the presence of the Minister responsible for Social Services, Lionel Carmant, and the Mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante.
The 114-unit building, with its remarkable architecture, is the largest real estate project dedicated to the fight against homelessness ever built in Quebec. The building is located at 330 rue Christin, between rue Sainte-Catherine and boulevard René-Lévesque, in the heart of Montreal's Latin Quarter.
With a construction budget of $23.5 million, this ambitious project was made possible thanks to financial contributions from the Quebec government and the City of Montreal, and the close collaboration of the Office municipal d'habitation de Montréal (OMHM). The building, owned by SHDM, is operated by Accueil Bonneau to help people experiencing homelessness find residential stability.
"With this new building, the SHDM demonstrates its expertise in developing innovative real estate projects that have a real impact on the community. By working closely with Accueil Bonneau from the outset of the project, we have created a new, stable living environment for a vulnerable mixed clientele. The SHDM teams are proud of this project, the largest of its kind in Quebec, which was financed to the tune of over $18 million from its own funds," said Sophie Rousseau-Loiselle, SHDM Managing Director.
An innovative model of social diversity
More than 80% of the 114 new Christin units will benefit from rent supplements, allowing residents to pay 25% of their income for housing. The project's innovative model will allow for a unique social mix, as different tenant profiles will cohabit in the building, including men and women, couples, students, refugees, seniors, Aboriginals and people from the LGBTQ2+ community. In addition, 20% of the units are reserved for residents who do not require special support, who will live alongside people in vulnerable situations, thus offering a unique and diversified living environment.
