Lennard Commercial Realty on behalf of RSM Canada Limited, in its capacity as Court-appointed receiver of 2807823 Ontario Inc. is pleased to offer for sale a 100% freehold interest in 142 Queenston Street in St. Catharines, Ontario. With a site area of just over 10 acres, this is a rare opportunity to develop a midrise community of 1,131 units only one kilometer from downtown St. Catharines. Currently, the site is zoned for medium density development, however, the City of St. Catharines would like to see additional density on the site.

The site offers easy access to Highway 406 and the QEW, and is well serviced by existing neighbourhood amenities. Within walking distance of the site, future residents can enjoy a multitude of parks, restaurants, shopping, and grocery stores as well as the St. Catharines Farmers Market, The Meridian Centre and The FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.

The history of the site dates to 1870 when it was developed into The St. Catharines General Hospital. The hospital was in continuous operation until 2013 when it was closed, after the new hospital on Fourth Avenue opened. In 2017 the site was sold, and demolition of the hospital began in 2019. The site is now vacant and ready for development.
