Low-Rise Buildings in Ottawa

One Seventy Preston 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 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 They may take historical reference from the buildings around them, and strive to offer what can’t be found in high rise buildings.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-story 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 the interior corridor.
