The two former Fairfield Manor sites in Kingston have been listed for sale, eight months after the retirement residences were shut down for failing inspections.
The former Fairfield Manor East and Fairfield Manor West are currently listed as investment properties for sale by Rogers & Trainor Commercial Realty Inc., Brokerage with a combined price tag of $4.5 million. Listed for sale, either together or separately (the former Fairfield Manor East is listed for $1,700,000, and the former Fairfield Manor West is listed for $2,800,000), the properties are “to be sold in an ‘AS IS’ condition under power of sale by a Receiver,” according to the listings.
The receiver, BDO Canada, a network of public tax, consulting, and business advisory firms, has given direction for the sale of the properties, which have stood vacant since the properties was ordered to close the retirement residences and the buildings were ordered closed by the Kingston fire Marshall beginning on Monday, Sept. 3, 2018 after failed fire inspections.
The former property owner, Q and Sons Management Inc., were formally ordered to close and vacate both properties on Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018, after residents were left in the buildings with a very minimal staff, sometimes without food service. As the buildings were vacated, some residents ended up in Kingston Health Sciences Centre as a result of the sudden closure and order to vacate.
The property listings note that the former Fairfield Manor West building is “in need of some upgrades.” The listing for the former Fairfield Manor East property is available here, and the listing for the former Fairfield Manor West Property is available here.
