A little history :
In the mid-1870s, the Gray Nuns commissioned architect Michel Laurent to draw up plans for the construction of a new building in the community's old gardens. The building, whose volume is the largest of all the Gray Nuns' stores, was built in 1874-1875. It includes five adjoining warehouse stores, all identical except for the one along rue d'Youville, which is twice as large as the others. Openings made in the adjoining walls allow communication between the three units on the rue d'Youville side on the one hand, and between the two units on the convent side on the other.
A glance at the first occupants allows us to meet grocery wholesalers, transport companies, a manufacturer of shoes and boots and the offices of the Commissioners of the port of Montreal. At the end of the 19th century, shoe and boot maker James McCready occupied part of the premises for about 20 years. Although there are a variety of occupants until the 1960s, the manufacturing sector seems to be the most present.
From the 1960s, the building was gradually abandoned. In 1977, the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation purchased the building and undertook extensive renovations. The two upper floors are converted into social housing and the heart of the building is open to a height of two floors, thus offering tenants an interior courtyard. The lower floors were then rented to various organizations, including Maison Jean-Lapointe.
