Cultural Organizations

Buildings with a cultural vocation

The SHDM also owns several buildings that have been set up to become cultural venues. Some offer activities and services directly to the general public, such as the Darling Foundry, the future Maison de la culture Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension or the historic chapel of the Monastère du Bon-Pasteur. Others are designed to provide artists with venues for creation and development such as the Cirque Éloize’s premises in Old Montréal.

Targeted interventions in partnership

As it does for the community sector, the SHDM use its expertise and financial capacity to enable the implementation of ambitious cultural projects that need time to materialize. From the temporary acquisition of property to the sharing of expertise in construction work management, the possibilities are endless and each project is unique.

For example, in 2012, the SHDM purchased and ensured the upkeep of the former Just For Laughs Museum to preserve its cultural vocation and avoid its transformation into a private residential project. This left time for the circus company Les 7 doigts de la main to find the funding to purchase the premises in 2014 and modify them to meet their specific needs. The SHDM has also converted the former firehouse on Place D'Youville to house the Centre d’histoire de Montréal.

Another example is the SHDM’s commitment to the Pied carré and Ateliers créatifs Montréal organizations with respect to the creation of the Pôle de création et de diffusion de Gaspé. This project will feature artists' studios and spaces for cultural productions, and is part of the redevelopment of a former industrial building in the Plateau Mont-Royal borough.

Our principal properties with a cultural vocation

Fonderie Darling - Center for Visual Arts

Managed by the Center for Visual Arts of Quartier Éphémère, a non-profit organization, the former Darling Foundry houses a permanent gallery, creative studios, a multipurpose room and the famous Cluny ArtBar coffee shop and restaurant. Built in 1891, the Darling Foundry was part of a large derelict metallurgical complex, which was re-developed in 2002. The recycling of the building was honoured in 2003 by the Ordre des architectes du Québec in the “Conservation, Restoration or Conversion” category (Atelier in Situ).

Cirque Éloize – Dalhousie train station

The former Dalhousie train station was restored and transformed to house the National Circus School in 1988. Taking advantage of its voluminous spaces, the building continued to be dedicated to the circus arts when it became the work and rehearsal space of Cirque Éloize.

Maison de la culture of the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension

In 2015, the SHDM undertook important work at the Centre Jean-Marie Gauvreau, located at 911, Jean-Talon Street East, in order to house the new Maison de la culture of the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough, a cultural storefront that includes an auditorium and exhibition spaces.

Monastère du Bon Pasteur historic chapel

As part of the overall renovation of the Monastère du Bon Pasteur by the SHDM, the old chapel was transformed into a cultural venue. Incorporating many systems needed for its new vocation (movable seating, soundproofing, air conditioning, video and lighting), the building includes a 150-seat concert hall, an exhibition room and offices that are leased to various organizations and corporations.
