Claridge Homes wants to double the planned number of homes on the eastern part of LeBreton Flats that it bought more than a decade ago, including a proposal to build a 55-storey building on Booth Street.
Highlights of the new plan include:
1,650 residential units, as opposed to the 850 units in the previous plan.
Four new towers ranging from 25 to 55 storeys.
Affordable, senior and rental housing units.
Commercial retail, including a grocery store, in the podiums of towers.
New city park system that incorporates the aqueduct and five historical bridges.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/claridge-lebreton-flats-new-development-1.3921496
