Sussex House: 22 Murray Street

Situated adjacent to the National Capital’s Ceremonial Route, this prestigious project has become the benchmark for appropriate large scale infill into the historic fabric of Ottawa’s urban core. Cited as exemplary by urban planners and City of Ottawa Design Guidelines this 85 unit, 6 storey, mixed use (residential/commercial) development contributes to Ottawa’s Byward Market’s vitality and its historical context while providing a defined yet engaging edge to the famed “Tin House Courtyard”. Two levels of underground parking have been successfully integrated into an intricate complex of courtyards and pedestrian paths. Hailed also for its collaboration of private and public interests, this private sector development is as significant for its success in meeting and exceeding the expectations of federal, heritage and municipal authorities as it is a tribute to architectural integration of a new development into a heritage-rich context.
