It’s that time! Nothing brings more excitement to a condo project than ground-breaking (except moving in ;)). The Re Residences Condo Ottawa is breaking ground on Sparks Street and the dig has begun. This project has a history of stop and go. Back in 2010, Ashcroft Homes announced this landmark project that was set to include condominium units and a boutique hotel. Due to a lack of sales, the development was put on hold. Fast Forward to 2017 and construction is underway.
After generations of success, Sparks Street lost its standing at the premiere street in Ottawa. Following this, the city saw a tremendous rise in popularity of Bank St, Wellington St, Richmond Rd, and Beechwood Ave. For years, the city has been working to bring back the allure of Sparks Street and the Re Residence is a major piece of that revitalization. First, there was the opening of the wildly popular restaurant, Riviera. Following the success of El Camino and Datsun just around the corner on Elgin Street, Chef Michael Carmichael had the vision to make the Old Bank Building on Sparks Street one of Ottawa’s most popular restaurants. With the growing popularity of Riviera, the city is starting to remember the glory days of Sparks Street. Sparks Street is also home to some of Ottawa’s annual festivals including PoutineFest, RibFest and BuskerFest, just to name a few. Further, with the construction of Ottawa’s most exclusive address; the Re Residences Condo Ottawa is primed to help the evolution of Sparks Street.
This project is set to redefine luxury condo living in Ottawa. First class amenities include a butler service, a high-end restaurant in the building, a spa, SkyLounge for residents to enjoy, and unobstructed views of Parliament Hill, Ottawa River, Gatineau Hills, Byward Market, and LeBreton Flats from the rooftop terrace. Perfectly situated, the Re Residences is poised to help bring back the glory days of Sparks Street.
