The land of the former den of the Sherbrooke Hells on resale for $ 1.9 million
The land is located near the École internationale du Phare, in Sherbrooke.
The 29.54 acre lot where the former home of the Sherbrooke Hells Angels stood before it was demolished is up for sale again, this time for 1.9 M$.
Last April, the Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions (DPCP) sold the land for $775,000. Équipe Bérubé, affiliated with Royal LePage, published the new sales sheet.
The current owners of the land are Dany Sévigny and René Roy, according to the assessment roll available on the Ville de Sherbrooke website. On Saturday, the same document indicated that the value of the land at 1575 Wellington Street South was $117,800.
Reached by phone, Mr. Sévigny says he and his partner decided to sell the plot after being approached by several brokers wishing to coordinate the sale. He adds that putting the land back on the market had always been part of their goals, although they are not closing the door on keeping it.
When we bought the land, we had a project in mind. We realized that it would take much longer than expected to do it there. Given this situation, the project that I cherished with my partner, we will carry it out elsewhere. […] When we bought it, we knew it was a possibility that we would keep it for several years, said the co-owner of the land.
“We had offers to buy the land. Following these offers, we decided to put it on the market with the help of a real estate agent. »

At the time of the demolition of the Hells Angels bunker, the municipal council had also modified the zoning by-law so that the natural environment and that a promoter cannot develop a real estate project there.
It is not for residential or for commercial or industrial. This is the toughest zoning in terms of construction, Sherbrooke Mayor Évelyne Beaudin said in February.
The Association for the Protection and Valorization of Boisé Ascot-Lennox has also launched a crowdfunding campaign with the aim of buying the land in question. The objective is to preserve and enhance this land and keep it as much as possible in its original state, assures the spokesperson for the Association, Alexandre Séguin Desy.
Imagine starting from Mount Bellevue and walking down to the river. How incredible this course could be, and this, in the middle of nature, he exclaims.
The Sherbrooke Hells Angels bunker was demolished in June 2021.
The land is sold without warranty and the occupancy period has been set at 30 days.
