Perkins+Will Plays a Leading Role in Ottawa’s Urban Renewal

A recent CBC article by Jennifer Ditchburn profiled this transformation. Speaking on the topic, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson noted that "It's a combination of public and private investment that we've never really seen in the history of our city to this extent." When complete, Ottawa will be home to several new sustainable neighbourhoods that are connected to the waterfront and served by convenient, high-speed transit.

"It's a combination of public and private investment that we've never really seen in the history of our city to this extent," said Mayor Watson

Projects by Perkins+Will feature prominently in the article and include the 12 km Confederation Line LRT; the renewal to the Bank of Canada Head Office; as well as the 38 acre master-planned Zibi development at Chaudière Island that has earned the endorsement of the "One Planet Community" network.
