Community Crafting: Builders come together to create Wateridge Village
Ottawa Citizen

The largest chunk of undeveloped land left in the city’s core begins its transformation into a residential community as sales officially open this weekend at Wateridge Village.

Set on 310 acres of rolling land that made up Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe, the mammoth development has been years in the making and will ultimately see an influx of some 9,500 residents in about 5,300 homes and condos over the next 15 to 20 years.


“It’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity,” says Jean Lachance, CLC’s senior director of real estate. “You’ve got 300 acres right in the core of the city, in the urban area, which will have many unique environmentally ‎sustainable elements within it … It’s really something new to Ottawa in terms of trying to achieve something different for a community.”
