After years of disuse, these military houses on Boulevard Hochelaga are slated to be torn down to build a new armoury for the 35th Combat Engineer Regiment. A large portion of the land not occupied by the armoury will most likely be sold to developers for new condominiums. 

After almost a decade of prevarication, some forty shabby-looking military houses and apartment buildings lining Boulevard Hochelaga behind the shopping centres in Sainte-Foy are soon to be demolished to make way for a new armoury for the 35th Combat Engineer Regiment.
