Adding a new residential landmark to a well-established neighbourhood is not something to be done in a slapdash manner. It requires thoughtful design that takes into account everything from the building’s relationship to the street and residents’ various modes of transportation, to complimenting the surrounding area and providing the right amenities for the people who will be living there.
Condo-like living in the heart of the action
At Chmiel Architects, we’ve carefully taken all of these elements into consideration in our design of a new 9-story, mixed-use apartment building located at the gateway of Hintonburg, one of Ottawa’s hottest neighbourhoods. This project is sure to please those looking for the ease and modernity of condo-like living in an urban location that can’t be beat.
Designed for urban life
The proposed development will have a total of 91 residential units in a mix of 2-bed, 1-bed and studio units, with a mezzanine for the second floor. The building contains 16 parking spaces (15 located below grade), one electrical charging station at grade, and bike storage for 60 bicycles. Fronting onto Wellington Street West at the intersection of Somerset Street West, the structure will include approximately 205 sq.m. of street-oriented commercial space.
Located in close proximity to the newly-built Bayview LRT station, the building is also a stone’s throw from incredible restaurants, bakeries, cafes, art galleries, night life and bespoke retail. And for those who appreciate a fantastic view, several of the units will have balconies, and the building will feature a green roof and rooftop patio for communal use.
We’re delighted to be tasked with the design of this wonderful new addition to Hintonburg. And we’re pleased to report that the project has received site plan approval with construction stated to commence in 2020.
