Bank and James Street Condo Ottawa Neighbourhood Guide

James House Condo Ottawa is located in Centretown. The majority of Ottawa’s downtown vicinity is located in the business sector, just outside of the Byward Market.  Condos in this district are located in Canada’s political core, with many units boasting views of the Parliament buildings and other government structures.  This area is conveniently nestled between Bronson St. and Elgin St. and is in close proximity to the Hwy 417.  The downtown sector is 15 minutes from Ottawa International Airport, 10 minutes from the VIA Rail train station and 5 minutes from Ottawa’s Greyhound Station. The hustle and bustle of business during the day is complemented by calm evenings.  Nightlife isn’t far, however, as Elgin Street and the Byward Market feature a wide array of restaurants and bars open late.  Fine dining is prevalent in the area, including some of Ottawa’s best steakhouses and seafood eateries.  Cultured palettes will find thrill knowing Ottawa’s Chinatown and Little Italy are also nearby.  This area also is home to many international grocery stores as well as local names.  Shopping enthusiasts are close to The Rideau Centre and many boutiques. Centretown features Canadian culture as one of its main highlights.  The National Arts Centre is home to some of the best performances, seminars, and exhibitions in Ottawa.

If gazing at Monet’s is something you fancy, the National Gallery of Canada is within walking distance.  Other museums in the area include the Museum of Nature, the Canadian War Museum and the Museum of Civilization. Living in the heart of downtown Ottawa doesn’t limit those recreational enthusiasts.  The Ottawa River borders the Northern area of Centretown, with Quebec just a short drive across the Portage Bridge.  The Gatineau Hills, a 10-minute drive onto the Quebec side, features a wide array of hiking paths, biking trails, and ski hills. One of Ottawa’s most well-known attractions, the Rideau Canal, runs through Centretown.  The Canal is the longest skating rink in the world, attracting skaters not only for its length but with its many “Beavertail” stands. Many main transit lines run through the downtown center, facilitating transportation around Ottawa.

Other Low-Rise Buildings in Ottawa

Low-Rise Buildings in Ottawa

James House Condo Ottawa is a low-rise building. Low Rise apartments can be found all over the world. Depending on the city, they can be highly sought after living arrangements. Low Rise condos commonly refer to buildings of less than four stories. They tend to be walkups without the benefit of an elevator. The charm and character of these buildings make up a large part of the draw. Smaller buildings that are less expensive to build overall, may include more architectural features and other design features that set it apart. Newer builds, in particular, will strive to keep the continuity of the neighbourhood. They may take historical reference from the buildings around them, and strive to offer what can’t be found in high rise buildings. These thoughtful Low Rise projects are of particular importance in neighbourhoods where bylaws stand to uphold sight lines and other existing community elements.

In some parts of the world, the buildings may have historic value and are sought after for their cultural cache. The uniqueness of these buildings sets them apart as one of a kind living spaces. Older Low Rise buildings may lack some of the amenities of newer Low Rise builds. However, new units are not as easy to find with rising costs to build and developers wanting to maximize the number of units in their buildings. This is most evident in urban centres where density and cost of the footprint for the land are high. In the developing suburbs around city centres, new builds of all heights can be found. The density of outer urban centres is increasing at super speed. These newly designed communities offer much by way of options, including interesting low rise choices.

The size of Low Rise buildings can vary greatly, with just a few units or they may be quite dense. The choices for configuration of Low Rise buildings can also have a wide range. Some townhouses share a sidewall, are two or three stories and might include a front and back entrance and yard. Similar units may be found that are stacked, run front to back and may still include multiple stories within the units. These units may or may not all have an entrance at grade.

It’s also possible to find townhouses that have back to back configuration, where units share a back wall. Multi-storey low rise apartment buildings will have units that are stacked vertically, usually with fewer than four floors and will share an interior corridor. There are fewer examples of older buildings that share an exterior corridor. Hybrid buildings will have grade access units at the base with stacked units on top that share in the interior corridor.
