594 Rideau St | 24.5m | 7 fl | Proposed

Richcraft Group of Companies is proposing to develop a seven (7) storey, 24.5 m high, mixed-use building at the corner of Rideau and Charlotte Street. The proposed development includes retail commercial uses at grade and residential units above. In total, the proposed development has a gross floor area (GFA) of 4,306 m2, 347 m2 of which is retail.

The development features heavy glazing and masonry along all elevations. The horizontal mass of the building is largely broken up with the establishment of vertical bays, an architectural treatment, with four (4) along Rideau Street and two (2) along Charlotte Street. This utilization of bays pulls from the neighbouring Willis House and will greatly contribute to the mainstreet character of the building.

The ground floor of the development will contain three (3) retail units, all with frontage along Rideau Street with unit in the northwest corner of the building having frontage along both Rideau and Charlotte Streets. All retail units are accessible via Rideau Street. The ground floor will also contain a 182 m2 indoor amenity space as well as access to the 202 m2 outdoor amenity area. The residential portion of the building will offer a variety of unit types, including 10 studio units, 37 1BR units, and 21 2BR units in order to cater to a variety of residents.

Parking for the development will be located in two (2) levels of an underground garage. The garage is accessed via a 6.7 m driveway located along the Charlotte Street frontage of the site. The driveway is located over 20 m from the Charlotte and Rideau Street intersection in order to minimize interruptions with traffic along Charlotte Street.

Why come up with something new when you can just recycle the plans for Galleria over and over again...

*yawn* What a boring proposal for an area so ripe for redevelopment. It seems everything on Rideau St. East is being cancelled or shrunk.

Wasn't there a much larger proposal for this site recently?

Good scale for the area IMO.

Richcraft might not build anything flashy and their projects can sometimes drag on forever (think Parkdale, Edge/Bowery), but at the end of the day, they deliver descent looking, quality buildings.

You might be thinking about Richcraft's other site half a block away at 560 Rideau:
