The 530 Tremblay Road site is 26.43 acres (10.7 hectares) and currently vacant. It is located south of Highway 417 and the St. Laurent Shopping Centre, and across the highway from a new light rail transit station. It was acquired by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) in 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 to encourage development that supports surrounding public transit options and what’s called “transit-oriented development” as a result of Official Plan policies that were developed and approved in 2014.
At the request of the federal government, Canada Lands and Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) are working to find innovative ways to address underused sites. At 530 Tremblay Road, PSPC will retain ownership of 7.8 acres (3.1 hectares) in order to build new office space. The remaining 18.6 acres (7.5 hectares) will be declared surplus and sold to Canada Lands. PSPC and Canada Lands have worked together during the site development planning process to determine the ideal size and location of this office space, as well as access and site servicing, to ensure it is appropriately integrated into the larger development. A public engagement process was completed in 2019.
A final plan will be submitted to the City of Ottawa for approval in 2020.
The plan includes a mix of uses and a variety of amenities, municipal infrastructure needs associated with the Tremblay Road re-alignment, an upgraded sewer main, a stormwater management facility, the incorporation of open areas and landscaping, and a new park.
