The sites, close to Ottawa’s downtown core, present a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to address issues of urban reintegration, quality of life and factors important in designing the places where you live, work, learn and play.
Canada Lands Company purchased the site from the Department of National Defence on March 1, 2011.
The 2010 Algonquins of Ontario – Canada Lands Company Participation Agreement provides a framework for an ongoing relationship and the realization of mutual benefits as the Wateridge Village is developed.
Specifically, the Participation Agreement provides opportunities for cooperation between the Algonquins of Ontario and Canada Lands Company, including: commemoration of the history and connection of the Algonquin people with the site; AOO engagement is in all stages of concept development, land use planning and detailed design; and the opportunity for the AOO to acquire lots or blocks under the municipally approved plan, as development takes place.
Canada Lands Company will service phase 2B in the fall of 2019 and into the spring of 2020. Phase 2B will offer 80 townhomes, single detached and semi-detached dwellings along with more than 300 low-rise apartments/stacked townhomes.
