Shovel in the ground in 2017
OTTAWA, Dec. 4, 2015 /CNW/ - One of the most iconic corners in Ottawa will have a landmark building from Mizrahi Developments to honour the civic importance of the thoroughfare.
The go-ahead came today when the Ontario Municipal Board joined the City of Ottawa Planning Staff, the Planning Committee, City Council and the Urban Design Review Committee in acknowledging the building's landmark status. The approval process is now complete.
The new boutique condominium building at the corner of Island Park Drive and Wellington Street marks the entry of Mizrahi Developments into Ottawa. The Canadian company, known for its luxury, boutique buildings and old-world craftsmanship, has worked closely with Ottawa city officials since 2014 to gain approval for the 12-storey project.
"We are committed to collaborating with the city and the local community to design and create a building that contributes to the architectural landscape of the city and to the lives of local residents, " comments Sam Mizrahi, president of Mizrahi Developments.
City officials described the architectural signature of the 12-storey building as "landmark." Designed by Page + Steele/IBI Group, a multidisciplinary global practice, headquartered in Toronto, the project will be led by senior principal architect, Henry Burstyn.
Located on the northeast corner of Island Park Drive and Wellington Street, the condominium boutique building at 1451 Wellington will offer the hallmarks of Mizrahi's award-winning luxury brand. The private firm builds to an exacting standard, exceeding the building codes with walls three-times thicker than required, solid-wood doors, UV-protected windows and superior heating and cooling systems for maximum comfort and cost efficiency. A progressive company, they work to the highest international standards for environmental practices and stay abreast of smart-home technologies and innovations. Services in the condominium building are of five-star hotel quality with 24/7 concierge, spa fitness facilities and entertainment suites.
The only builder in Canada with the ISO 9001 certification, a process management system that requires continual third-party auditing for optimal performance, quality, service and customer satisfaction, Mizrahi is committed to innovation and excellence in the luxury marketplace. In Toronto, the company is known for its award-winning boutique properties in Yorkville, a popular heritage neighbourhood in midtown. Mizrahi Developments is also working with Foster +Partners, one of the world's most innovative architectural practices, on a mixed-use, luxury high-rise at Yonge and Bloor in Toronto, one of the best-known intersections in Canada.
Construction on the new Wellington Street project will begin in 2017.
