The NCC is moving forward to create a Master Concept Plan that will provide a refreshed vision for the redevelopment of LeBreton Flats. The overarching vision in the Master Concept Plan will enable the NCC to be open to a flexible real estate strategy to increase competition and leverage opportunities.

Benefitting from early engagement with the public, the Algonquin Nation, stakeholders, the surrounding community and the City of Ottawa, the NCC intends to seek municipal approval of the Master Concept Plan in 2020.

Public consultations

The survey is now closed.

A world-class project

This renewal process will build on past experience to create a lively fusion of residential, commercial, cultural and social elements, accented by world-class public-realm amenities.

Greater connectivity

The future development, anchored by the Canadian War Museum, the Ottawa River, the future public library and two light rail transit (LRT) stations, will include the revitalization of the aqueduct and Nepean Inlet, and allow for a potential anchor institution or major event centre.

The NCC will also be launching a request for proposals to redevelop the Library District. This is a 1.2-hectare mixed-use site located at the northeast corner of Albert and Booth streets, between the Pimisi LRT station and the future location of the new City of Ottawa–Library and Archives Canada joint facility.
