NCC to develop LeBreton Flats in stages

By Kate Porter, CBC News Ottawa, March 7, 2019

The National Capital Commission is taking a new approach to LeBreton Flats by offering up pieces of the 21-hectare property for development in stages, but says the do-over might not include an NHL arena.

"It's not essential. It's possible. We're not conditioning the development of this project on an arena or a major event centre," said Tobi Nussbaum, the NCC's new chief executive, during a teleconference Tuesday.

Unlike the previous strategy to redevelop the prime land west of Ottawa's downtown core, this one isn't focused on any single anchor tenant or landmark.
