929 Richmond | 61m | 19f | Proposed

The proposed application is to permit the development of a mixed-use building comprising 176 rental units with ground floor commercial uses. The proposed height of the building is 61 metres or 19 storeys. The property is located on the north-west corner of Richmond Road and Woodroffe Avenue in the Woodroffe-Lincoln Heights neighbourhood of Ottawa.

An earlier Applications for a minor zoning amendment to permit a building height of 47 metres and site plan control were approved in 2015 for a condominium apartment development. Following initial marketing as a condominium, the owner has changed direction and is now proposing a residential rental apartment building with commercial ground floor uses.

The proposed development will comprise 176 rental residential units ranging from bachelor, one bedroom and two bedroom units, associated amenity space, and two ground floor commercial spaces. Surface and underground parking is proposed. 14 surface parking spaces are proposed in an outdoor lot at the rear of the building, 4 outdoor bicycle spaces. The underground garage will comprise 120 parking spaces and 190 bicycle parking spaces. The proposed design of the building incorporates varying building heights ranging from two to nineteen storeys.

Disappointing and bland compared to the previous proposal, but still a good use of the site.

This site deserves better. But the people of Ottawa have spoken - and they don’t want better.

Too many people in Ottawa buying disposable houses slapped up hastily outside the greenbelt, and getting in their cars to go everywhere, doing nothing to make our city better as a collective place to live or visit.

I don't recall this being put to a vote.


I like the wandering and disappearing trees along the driveway to the surface lot at the back (especially the one that's smack in the middle of the driveway in the first rendering looking north).

My thoughts on this as well. Uninspired design but better use of site, average height, and increases residents in the area.

If we'd never seen the original proposal, this would look pretty decent. As it stands, it's a big step beck.

Same developer?

Somewhat off topic, but I wish Stage 2 LRT would have added a station at Woodroffe in addition to the Cleary and New Orchard. We're missing a huge opportunity for redevelopment and transit integration at this intersection.

Have a look at page 2 of this thread for a good render of the original proposal.

It was to have been a rather interesting building with big windows and height set-backs, unlike the new boxy version that looks like just about any rental building anywhere. Unfortunately the Ottawa condo market is pretty saturated so apparently we have to settle for cheap.
