Nice find Josh.. here's some pics from the Images of Centretown blog











Here's what we knew about the site previously from the General Rumours thread

Quote:
Application D08-02-10/A-00018 by Orchid Development Corp. for 108 & 110 Lisgar St. (parking lot behind city hall) is at the Feb 17 CofA.... wonder what the application is about? Hopefully not something related to a parking lot

from JJC newsletter Nov. 2007
Quote:
117326 Ontario Inc. sold 108 & 110 Lisgar Street to Orchid Development Corp for $2,000,000 or $168/sf. The purchaser is proposing to develop the site with a mid to high-rise condominium apartment building.

Me like.

Staying on the Hudson Park theme, which is sure to be a winner.

I really like this art deco inspired look. Though I would prefer the garage access to be off of Cartier St to allow commercial on the corner of Lisgar and Cartier. But at least we have a small eatery in the proposal.

Cheers,
Josh

Good point! I'm not sure if proposal includes the small lot facing Cartier though. On the site plan it indicates the project is beside a surface parking lot, not Cartier. Looking at E-MAPs it also looks like the lot along Cartier (131 Cooper on E-Maps, same as the apartment building behind it) is separate from this property (108 & 110 Lisgar).

That building looks awesome, and like Harls indicated, it's got the HP thingy going on that differentiates it from other buildings of this height and size in the city very nicely!

At some point Centretown residents will have to realize that buildings will steadily become taller. From their own mock up you can see that while the building is taller, it is also pleasant and a welcome addition to the skyline and the streetscape.

Yes, the two storey house will be "dwarfed", but are we satsifed in a downtown core made of buildings in line with 2 storey redstone houses? I hope not.

Because to the north we have City Hall (low lying) followed by Jean Pigot Place (that's the new name of Festival Plaza, right?), Confederation Park, and then the NAC, I think it's great that the site could showcase such a nice looking building, as it is likely to be highly visable from much of downtown, and remain that way. It should also have some very nice northfacing views.

Sort of. In either case though, it's certainly a rarety for this city.

My parents commented on the sheer volume of medium-high rise apartment buildings in Ottawa...they think there's actually quite a lot of them for the size of the city (and this is coming from people originally from the Hamilton/Dundas area).
