Developers seek to build three-tower rental high rise rental project near Ottawa’s Cummings Bridge


Ontario Construction News staff writer

Two developers have filed an application with the City of Ottawa to redevelop a block at Vanier’s western edge into three rental towers above a two-story podium with ground-level retail space.

The proposed development just across the Cummings Bridge at 2 Montreal Rd. and 3 Selkirk St. — formerly a gas station and the Eastview Shopping Centre – would include 1,003 rental units in towers reaching 22, 28 and 32 storeys.

Developers ML Devco and Main + main filed the application with the city’s planning department in June, with comments due on Thursday (Aug. 27).

RENX reports that ML Devco – the development arm of Magil Laurentian Realty Investments – is also planning a multi-residential development in Hintonburg after acquiring several parcels of land bordered by Wellington Street West and Armstrong Street just west of the O-Train line for $6.2 million earlier this year

Meanwhile, Ottawa Business Journal reports that main + main, which specializes in mixed-use urban developments, is also planning to develop three highrises on the site of the former Alterna Savings and Credit Union on Albert Street the city’s downtown area.
