City pushed to make new Albert-Slater juncture a landmark

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, February 6, 2018

A proposed reconstruction of the western juncture of Albert and Slater streets should have a goal of turning a dead zone into a gateway for the downtown core and a redeveloped LeBreton Flats, city planners have heard.

The city’s urban design review panel has completed a formal analysis of the city’s plan to change the major east-west streets after the Confederation Line LRT opens this year.

The independent peer-review panel has experts from outside of Ottawa City Hall, including some from outside Ottawa, to critique urban design proposals before the plans go to city council.
