King’s Hall sold

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS - Record Staff

Comp­ton's King's Hall and its 10-acre lot have been sold to a con­sor­tium from Toronto, who want to de­velop a French or English im­mer­sion school for the Chi­nese com­mu­nity be­gin­ning in 2022.

The real es­tate team of the Lafleur­davey Bernard Thibault led the trans­ac­tion be­tween the for­mer own­ers and the con­sor­tium.

Ac­cord­ing to the bro­ker's com­ments picked up by Ra­dio-canada, the new own­ers want to ren­o­vate the in­te­rior of the build­ing and con­vert it into an English or French im­mer­sion board­ing school for Chi­nese high school stu­dents.

The sid­ing would be re­tained and the school will be lo­cated in the Queen's Hall sec­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the bro­ker, in­vestors do not want to iso­late them­selves from the lo­cal com­mu­nity and plan to give cit­i­zens ac­cess to the swim­ming pool.

The con­sor­tium, known as King's Hall Ed­u­ca­tion Inc., is made up of three in­di­vid­u­als and was regis­tered in Au­gust of this year. The sale price has not been dis­closed yet, but the prop­erty eval­u­a­tion is at $1.3 mil­lion ac­cord­ing to the mu­nic­i­pal as­sess­ment roll.
