The 310 acres (125 hectares) of the former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe, so close to Ottawa’s downtown core, present a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to discuss and address issues of urban reintegration, quality of life and factors important in designing the place where you live, work, learn and play.
The mission is to develop an exemplary diverse contemporary neighbourhood offering a choice in housing, employment, commercial, institutional and leisure activities which will be defined by the site’s unique setting, along with a commitment to environmental sustainability and long term economic viability.

The Isles (Chaudiere Islands / Domtar redevelopment)
The 3.5-million square foot project — three-quarters of it residential — is expected to take 15 years to complete, and will include condominiums, offices, retail spaces, a hotel and restaurants, as well as public spaces, bike paths and open plazas, incorporating the historic industrial feel, and many of the materials, from the existing buildings. The mixed-use neighbourhood is intended to be a showcase for sustainable development, and adopts the principles of the One Planet Communities program for creating green living and workspaces.
