Ottawa has seen some significant condo growth in recent months, with new highrise towers and community-style complexes being built throughout the city. Whether you’d prefer to live in a trendy urban neighbourhood like Westboro, Little Italy, or Centretown, or you’d rather live in a more residential area like New Edinburgh or Alta Vista, Ottawa’s wide condo selection offers something for everyone.
For those who prefer the energy and excitement of a downtown lifestyle, there are plenty of hot new condos currently under construction. A short drive along any of the major streets downtown reveals all kinds of new buildings in the works, like The Merit, which is a new condo project by Charlesfort Developments scheduled to be completed this year. The new building will be located at Lisgar and Cartier in the heart of downtown, making it the perfect choice for urban buyers.
