While I agree,
1) you have to cross the 174...on foot...5 lanes and a median! Can't see too many people doing that more often than they have to. I think they are planning on adding/extending one of the North Orleans express buses to that area of Trim.
2) most of the new condo developments in Ottawa (urban or suburban) are not transit oriented for the reason that they are far too expensive. Even the ones in Centretown or Lower town still contain large parking garages. Most people with the incomes/cash on hand required to purchase most these, also own and drive cars....they just do.
