Grenville selling former cabaret property with aim of revitalization

The Village of Grenville has a piece of prime real estate for sale.

The former Le Cabaret building at 424 Rue Principale was purchased by the Village of Grenville in October 2018 with the intention of revitalizing the property for other uses.  The former adult entertainment establishment closed in the spring of 2018.

Also included in the land sale is 428 Rue Principale, which is located next to the former Le Cabaret on the corner with Rue Maple (Route 344).  The asking price for the property is $500,000 for 22,482 square feet or one-half of an acre of land.

The village hopes that the purchaser demolishes the old cabaret building.  The small building on the corner will be relocated at the village’s expense.

Village Director-General Alain Léveillé said council has put measures in place that are designed to prevent the Le Cabaret property from returning to its former use.

The property and a small, well-maintained building at the corner of Rue Maple and Rue Principale are the first things many drivers see when they enter Grenville via the Long Sault Bridge.
