With the snow finally melting, the weather warming, evening light and the Ottawa senators out of the playoffs, expectations point to an active spring surge with buyers taking advantage of great mortgage rates and ample inventory to choose from. Ottawa’s hottest ‘hoods right now are Hintonburg and Wellington Village, and for those shopping for an Ottawa condo, now is the time to buy!
Located just west of downtown and right on the edge of trendy Westboro, Ottawa’s Hintonburg is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city. New businesses are regularly opening their doors along Wellington, offering residents plenty of conveniences without having to travel downtown. Whether you’re looking to shop for gifts at an independent boutique, relax with a Sunday brunch, or grab some friends for a drink after dinner, Hintonburg is the place to be.
Sizzling Condos in Hot Ottawa Neighbourhoods
New condos are heating up the area as well. 99 Parkdale, a new condo project by Urbandale Construction, is expected to be completed in 2015. This 28 storey luxury highrise will offer 180 units of varying styles and sizes for prospective buyers. Enjoy spectacular views of Ottawa in every direction from either a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom suite, with some floor plans also offering dens for additional living space. 9’ ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and designer cabinetry and details contribute to the overall feeling of luxury you’ll find at 99 Parkdale. Units range in price from $327,900 to $1,687,700 depending on the size of the suite, floor plan, and custom design.
Amazing Proximity to the Walking District
In addition to the great walking district just a few steps from home, buyers can also take advantage of the amenities offered at 99 Parkdale. The project includes plans for a state-of-the art fitness centre, complete with a hot tub, swim spa, yoga room, and steam room. Invite some friends and entertain day or night, either on one of three rooftop terraces, or indoors in the media room or social room. Hosting guests from out of town? They can enjoy use of one of the two guest suites available right at the condo! The Parkdale Club on the 28th floor includes two private dining rooms and catering kitchens, a casual or a formal lounge, a card room, and a grand ballroom complete with a dance floor and two-storey windows.
Hintonburg Condos Offer Luxury and Style
The style at 99 Parkdale reflects the new growth that Hintonburg has seen in recent months. Not only is there plenty to do in this hot Ottawa neighbourhood, but its central location means you’ll also be close to other great areas like Centretown, the Glebe, Little Italy, the Golden Triangle, the ByWard Market, and more. A quick drive or a short walk along the Ottawa River pedestrian paths can help you explore all Ottawa has to offer!
