RLA Project: Westboro Connection

Its unique culture and atmosphere together with its almost ideal proximity to downtown Ottawa has made Westboro one of Ottawa’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. BridgePort Realty Management has partnered with Fiera Properties and Broccolini Construction to offer an exciting and exceptional mixed-use development, designed by Roderick Lahey Architects that will complement all that its unique location has to offer.


Expected to be complete in 2015, Westboro Connection is a rare mixed-use development that will include residential units, office and commercial space – including the new headquarters for Alterna Savings. Two towers – a residential tower and an office tower, respectively – are connected by street front retail and commercial space designed to accommodate a wide range of potential retail tenants, plus two levels of underground parking. The 6 storey office building will be designed to target LEED Silver certification while the 7 storey, 126 unit apartment building offers views of Westboro, the Ottawa River and the Gatineau Hills and has been efficiently designed to maximize space and comfort.


Roderick Lahey Architects took care to ensure that the residential component of the project was designed to feature, among other things, modern floor plans, engineered hardwood floors and ceramic tile. Although developed as a residential rental property, the building’s design and details rival the same quality finishings found in state-of-the-art condominium projects in and around the Westboro area.
