Canada Lands plans Ottawa mega-build
July 8, 2019
Canada Lands Corp., which has specialized in turning mostly former Canadian Forces land into mixed-use developments, is planning a mega-build in Ottawa. The proposal calls for a mixed-use development on a 25-acre parcel that could include hundreds of housing units, three 24-storey office towers for the federal government, and other high and low-rise commercial and residential buildings.
The site is at the corner of Tremblay Road and St. Laurent Boulevard in the Eastway Gardens neighbourhood of the capital city.
Mary Jarvis, executive director of real estate development at Canada Lands, said the proposal follows the city's zoning for transit-oriented development.
It includes a pedestrian bridge over Highway 417 to access the transit hub at the St. Laurent Shopping Centre.
Canada Lands is also planning a mixed-use, residential-heavy Vancouver development in the Point Grey neighbourhood in a joint venture with local First Nations.
