The Saint-Jean de la Croix Church, built in 1926 by Architect Zotique Trudel, was doomed to disappear after it was abandoned as a place of worship. The conversion of this building into a residential complex provided an opportunity to preserve one of gems of Quebec’s religious heritage.
The major challenge of this transformation was to introduce six new floors within the existing space, while maintaining and respecting the distinctive architectural character of the original building. The construction of two underground parking levels also represented a significant technical challenge.
Place de la Croix houses 58 upscale condominiums on six floors and 60 underground parking spaces. The condominium units offer large, open and bright interior spaces and combine a contemporary style mixed with heritage components preserved from the former church.
