Commonly referred to as the “Market” by locals, the historic Byward Market is a major commercial, social and cultural hub in the nation’s capital. A major attraction for tourists and residents alike, the area is known for its heritage buildings, trendy restaurants, boutique shops, and of course one of Canada’s oldest, continuously operated farmers market specializing in locally grown, seasonal foods.
Soon the Market will be home to a brand new mixed use community called Arts Court, in a joint venture between the City of Ottawa, DevMcGill, The Ottawa Art Gallery, Group Germain and the University of Ottawa. When completed, the project will combine the arts and theatre, retail, residential and Ottawa’s first ever Le Germain boutique hotel.
As the residential component of the project, ArtHaus Condos by DevMcGill will feature modern architecture by Régis Côté, Barry Padolsky Associates Inc./KPMB Architects and sleek interiors by Toronto-based interior design firm U31.
“We’re extremely proud to join such outstanding partners at Arts Court with the development of ArtHaus Condominiums,” said DevMcGill President Stéphane Côte. “This is a truly innovative development which will add to the transformation of the Byward Market area, one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Canada.”
The lower floors of the 23-storey tower will house the first boutique Le Germain Hotel in the nation’s capital, while floors 15 to 23 will consist of 89 private residences with sweeping city views, well-designed floorplans, and high quality features and finishes.
“The majority of the suites will have unobstructed and incomparable views of the city on three facades,” explained Côté. “The suites are well-designed with fluid and flexible open concept floorplans to ensure efficiency in everyday living, and boast ultra-modern architecture with sleek, clean and minimalist lines along with the finest features and finishes.”
With an ideal location steps from the University of Ottawa, Rideau Centre, and the Transitway, residents of ArtHaus will benefit from a Walk Score of 98 and a Transit Score of 93 which is only going to improve when the LRT opens in 2018. Plus, with easy access to Rideau Street, Laurier Avenue and Highway 417 via Nicholas Street, getting to other parts of the city couldn’t be easier.
Already under construction, ArtHaus will be completed in 2017, with suites starting from the mid $200,000s. To learn more about the project, be sure to register online today.
