Like every big city, Ottawa is a collection of neighbourhoods, each with its own style, vibe and scene. You might find yourself in a shopping mecca in the morning, a historic market around lunchtime, and surrounded by popular bars at night. Here’s a look at five of the most popular Ottawa neighbourhoods (Westboro, Hintonburg, The Byward Market, The Glebe and Centretown) and what you might expect out of each.

Here's what our clients really think about us

When you consider purchasing a condo ensure you’re doing it with a company that believes in building not just great condos but great relationships as well.

The Ottawa Citizen mentioned our prize-winning kitchen design at 317 Riverdale while commenting on this past weekend’s National Kitchen and Bath Association Awards. It turns out the judges were swayed by some of our innovative design features such as our ‘floating’ cabinets surrounding by a string of LED lights as well as a cascading chandelier that drops from the storey above to hover over the kitchen.
