The demolition of the Anacolor factory has begun

The city purchased the land from the factory in 2019 following an agreement between the paint company and the Citizens Committee. The Regroupement pour la qualité de l’air de Cap-Rouge has settled a class action lawsuit against Anacolor for the closure of the Cap-Rouge plant on October 1, 2019. The city now intends to develop the land.

The demolished portion posed a structural risk and the city had to secure it. The rest of the building is safe and will be demolished when the city decides to replace the project.Quebec City spokesman David O’Brien said in an email to Radio Canada.

Remember that at the moment, the city has not yet identified a specific project on this land. A planning process is being developed with the aim of enhancing the site.

When the project is decided, consultations will be held with residents.
