The plan was to build the other buildings (tall skinny ones), but IMO they got greedy and went with the bulkier and shorter building instead... Now they are even more greedy and actually want to build the one that was supposed to be built in the first place. The guy actually confirmed that they will be built.
My only concern is the view. Isn't it going to be blocked by east market building???
It might not be the prettiest building but then again, it's better than what they have there now...

Where are these skinnier towers going to be built? How come they have not been mentioned on the forum as of yet? Oh well, looks better than the current Claridge 1 & 2.

..... Oh well, looks better than the current Claridge 1 & 2.

True, although to me the render makes it look like they ran out of construction materials and had to finish the upper stories with something different (shades of Opus!).

Apparently they will be built where the National Bank on Rideau street is... I haven't seen this advertised anywhere, but the people working at Claridge office told me and showed me the plan with pictures :rolleyes: They already bought the property. What I don't understand is, how is that enough space to build two new towers? I know they are narrow and all, but still it doesn't seem like there is enough space... Maybe they will be facing Cumberland??? I am asuming they won't be getting rid of the Dworkin Furs building since it's historical architecture, and they also just renovated it recently... I also don't understand how that fur place makes any money... People buy fur coats there every day? :cool:

Skyway,
Thanks for the insight.


I am not sure why they would try and develop two more identical towers beside CP 1 and 2. Why not find another location in Sandy Hill or Byward where there won't be so much crowding? I may go in to the office next month and would not mind asking a bit more about these future projects.

If memory serves, there was a proposal to have about 18 storeys above the LCBO at King Edward & Rideau when it was first built. I forget all the details, but it was linked to some sort of public investment, I think involving a theatre on the ground level. Never happened obviously, but perhaps it will one day.

I believe the idea was that the LCBO could eventually be replaced by a tower, which the zoning would permit. With all the recent development down that way, I wonder if it might not happen sooner rather than later?

Where did that come from? It's not true. The only collapse nearby was at the Richcraft (Galleria) during excavation, they didn't shore it up properly and after a big rainstorm part of the abutting property on Daly fell into the hole, including someone's car. But no 9 storey collapse on Rideau.

No, I didn't mean make CP taller than they are now...I meant they need something taller than Place De Ville or some of the other 30+ storey buildings...maybe something an even 40 stories...

I know I know, I talk about Ottawa having a new "Tallest" all the time. I think 40 stories wouldn't dwarf everything else downtown, but it would stand out though, even if it wasn't the best in design/cosmetics...Well, I draw the line at MORE teal coloured metal and sand coloured fascias...Need something more like Bay Adelaide Centre in T.O, just on a smaller scale...

So is phase 3 and 4 going on the next block over? I wish they made these ones a bit more asymmetric, one taller than the other. Two sets of twin towers in a line looks tacky. Plus this one won't be taking the whole block like the other, I imagine, it has to co-exist with the hotel on the corner of King Edward. I'd rather see a slightly mismatched trio on that block, and maybe a perpendicular placement of the new buildings like Hudson park is.

Nov 8, 2009, 2:28 AM
I don't think that Claridge Plaza Phaze III is taking up so much of that next block. My impression from the parcels of land bought up by Claridge was actually that the two towers would front Cumberland (only one with a side facing Rideau) and be thinner than the current ones.

Additionally, I think we'd have heard if they planned to either tear down or incorporate the Dworkin Furs building, which is heritage designated

Pouring is pretty much done with the exception of some mechanical stuff on the roof. Focus now seems to be the precast exterior sheathing to the 5th floor. Interesting to see that CP I & CP II are about the same height given that CP II has one extra floor. A few inches were cut from each floor to add in the extra story yet keep it within the height restrictions. Lots of diamond grinders, chippers, & laser levels working each day... presumably to get the best slab level possible.

I was thinking they were starting to set up the crane at the new tower at U of O - because it seems too close to Claridge Plaza to be the one at the Convention Centre. I would think it would just be off the picture or hidden by 90 George and the Novotel building.

The two towers make that area look that much dense now from different perspectives...I wonder what it will be like with 2 more of them, and closer to 30 storeys each (28 I think arent' they?).

Any updated photos? Seems like it's progressing well. Thanks for everyone who contributes!

No new photos, but there is a sign on the Phase II retail saying that the National Bank will be moving there. Looks like they are occupying the whole ground floor of Phase II. Clears the way for demolitions for Phases III and IV.

The next 2 phases do you know are they condos as well.

This is the site for Phase 3 (which includes two towers, if I understand correctly). They're condos, I assume with ground-level retail.

Claridge's Website says only one unit left.

PDI's are well underway for purchasers on the first 8 levels. Is it normal that the inspections are done so far in advance of the move-in dates (February and March)?

Cheers.

PDIs aren't underway yet... just the bookings for them. I think they start in December.

It depends on how well the construction is progressing but generally - yes. Keep in mind you lose time during the holidays so you are only looking at about 6 weeks of productive construction time to start out. With 270+ apartments that window will shrink as various trades fall behind and/or materials are back-ordered or discontinued.

I haven't seen many apartments in Plaza II but of the couple I did see I would say this is going to be the best building Claridge has delivered. Units were clean, complete, and undamaged with good workmanship throughout. If the foreman can maintain that as the finishing progresses up the building buyers should be very happy with their purchase.
