Long Sault marina to close, new development will take its place

LONG SAULT, Ontario – A longtime fixture in Long Sault will be undergoing a massive change.

Long Sault Marina has been sold and will be completely torn down so that developer JC Godard can build a massive development that will include two seven-storey condo complexes.

Bentley’s Boardwalk will consist of 72 condominium suites and a boat club. It’s believed demolition and new construction will begin this summer.

“(My initial reaction of this development) was excitement,” said South Stormont Mayor Jim Bancroft. “(It’s a) great project for the Long Sault area and South Stormont, a major investment by a local developer well known to our community.”

The mayor added redevelopment of waterfront lands is a priority for the township.

“The Township’s Community Improvement Plan and Waterfront Development Plan strongly encourage the redevelopment and enhancement of the Long Sault Marina property,” he said. “Our council looks forward to working with Mr. Godard during the development process to revitalize the property and bring a landmark development to Long Sault.”

Along with the community of suites, top of the line amenities compliment the stunning facility. Residents can enjoy leisure activities courtesy of the indoor lap pool, a golf simulator, fitness centre and so much more. 

Bentley’s Boardwalk will also provide the public the opportunity to enjoy both Bentley’s Bar and Grill and Bentley’s Boat Club. Bentley’s Bar and Grill provides a stunning waterfront view of the St. Lawrence River that patrons can admire while they enjoy a drink or savour their meal. Bentley’s Boat Club provides 128 new boat slips for the condominium owner as well as the public.

Suites come in a variety of one bedroom, two bedrooms, or two bedrooms plus solarium. The condominiums range in size from 1000 sq.ft. to 1578 sq.ft. plus the suite’s balcony square footage.  Kitchens are equipped with four premium appliances with a stainless steel finish. In-suite laundry facilities are furnished with a high-quality washer and dryer.
