The 530 Tremblay Road site is currently vacant. It is located south of Highway 417 and the St. Laurent Shopping Centre, across the highway from a new light rail transit station. It was acquired by the Department of Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) in February 2009 from the Province of Ontario, with the intent to build a federal employment node east of the downtown core business district.
The property is zoned Transit Oriented Development (TOD) as a result of Official Plan policies that were developed and approved in 2014 as part of a City of Ottawa-led omnibus official plan amendment and rezoning of lands. PSPC undertook, at the time, a development options analysis to demonstrate how the property could become a transit-oriented, mixed-use community supported by the approved Official Plan Designation and Zoning.
The government asked that Canada Lands work collaboratively with PSPC on finding innovative ways to address underutilized sites. 530 Tremblay is a great example of where Canada Lands can lend its expertise in the redevelopment of this site by completing a subdivision and site development plan in accordance with the existing Secondary Plan for the area. PSPC will retain ownership of a portion of the property in order to accommodate the need for new office space. PSPC and Canada Lands will work together during the site development planning process to determine the ideal size and location for this office space as well as access and site servicing to ensure it is appropriately integrated in the larger development.
Canada Lands' role is to lead a public engagement process to gather community input and implement the existing Secondary Plan. The plan includes a mix of uses, including a variety of residential and other amenities, municipal infrastructure needs associated with the Tremblay Road re-alignment; upgraded sewer main; a new pedestrian bridge over Highway 417; stormwater management facility; and the incorporation of open areas and landscaping, and a new park.
