NCC takes next step in LeBreton Flats development

By Andrew Duffy, Ottawa Citizen, October 7, 2020

The National Capital Commission will take a major step later this month toward the redevelopment of one parcel of land on LeBreton Flats.

The NCC announced Tuesday that it will release a “request for qualifications” to develop the one-hectare site, just east of Pimisi LRT station, at the end of October. Such a request is designed to ensure there’s a qualified group of developers willing and able to submit proposals.

(...)Katie Paris, the NCC’s director of major real estate development and the leader of its Building LeBreton project, said the commission will be seeking “the most innovative developers to partner in bringing the LeBreton vision to life.” The library parcel has updated zoning that allows for a wide range of commercial and residential uses, she said.

“This site could have multiple towers,” Paris said, “including the possibility of building over the east side of the Pimisi O-Train station, creating an unprecedented opportunity for a truly transit-oriented development integrated directly with the LRT.”
