Name a more sustainable gesture than converting an empty, existing building into something useful - we'll wait. This massive undertaking provides much-needed housing units while also bringing life back to downtown.
Built in 1970, this 11 story, post-modernist building in downtown Ottawa had been sitting vacant for years. Our developer client, CLV Group, had the vision to convert the office building to a residential complex.
This gem boasts iconic precast concrete panels that give the exterior "skin" a unique character. It also has spectacular rooftop views and a hidden courtyard.
Design Insight - The Big Repurposing
“It's great to be working with Linebox and other talented consultants on this development! Vision, creativity, teamwork, solutions, diligence and execution...a successful recipe!”
Design Insight - Exterior "Skin"
To update the appearance of the exterior "skin", 96 of the 480 precast concrete panels were replaced with metal versions.
Albert Street Renewal Project
The project is inscribed in the Albert Street renewal project undertaken by the City of Ottawa. It aims to make walking, cycling, and transit use more comfortable and convenient by redistributing and improving the streetscape environment.
