A Canada Lands Company and Algonquins of Ontario joint venture.

View plans

Located near Ottawa’s downtown core, 291 Carling Avenue (also known as 299 Carling Avenue) is a 3.4-acre (1.4 hectares) parcel which was acquired by Canada Lands Company from Public Services and Procurement Canada in February 2017 as part of a joint venture with the Algonquins of Ontario (“AOO”).

This joint venture builds upon an ongoing partnership between Canada Lands Company and the AOO at Wateridge Village (former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe). The Management Committee overseeing 291 Carling Avenue has equal representation from both organizations, with Canada Lands Company acting as the project manager. The site is vacant and currently acts as a parking lot with 300 fully occupied parking stalls. 

Canada Lands Company is currently in the public consultation phase of the project and has been working with the City of Ottawa, the local community and other stakeholders, to create a preferred development concept plan in order to submit municipal applications for a rezoning of the site. This process will also include the development of architectural and urban design guidelines for the site that will be applied to the sale of serviced lots or blocks to builders.

The preferred development concept plan was presented to the public on June 25, 2019. Canada Lands Company is continuing its work to finalize the development concept plan to determine what, if any, adjustments may be made to address suggestions and concerns raised in addition to how the development concept plan will integrate into the rezoning application. The company is working closely with the councilor’s office and is reaching out to additional stakeholders. Canada Lands Company hopes to submit a rezoning application for municipal approval in the near future.

We invite you to stay in touch and follow along as the project progresses. You may e-mail your comments or questions to info@clc.ca.
