Tin House Court block

In 2016, we began major restoration and upgrading work on heritage buildings located between 445 and 465 Sussex Drive, at 13–15 Clarence Street, and in the Tin House Court.

Restoration of the Tin House Court block

In the early 1960s, the NCC played a key role in heritage conservation in Canada’s Capital Region, when our staff saved the “Mile of History” (known today as Confederation Boulevard) from demolition and urban renewal. Since then, we have continued to invest in protecting the buildings and assets on Confederation Boulevard.

Our goals for this project:

  • To preserve this historic group of heritage buildings
  • To provide universal access to as many buildings as possible
  • To ensure that the new building under construction at 7 Clarence Street is a source of pride for Canadians

The work includes:

  • restoration of facades
  • rehabilitation or replacement of windows
  • repair of roofs
  • improvements to universal accessibility
  • repairs to the foundations
  • replacement of outdated electrical and mechanical equipment
  • interior renovations

Once the work is complete, this attractive and modernized group of heritage buildings will be preserved as a legacy for future generations of Canadians.

The Tin House Court block of commercial properties is now for rent. See the listings on the Inside Edge Properties website or download the brochure.
