OTTAWA, ON

The Rideau Centre, located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, underwent a major revitalization and expansion to reinforce its status as the leading shopping destination in the city.

A complete interior renovation of the existing centre provided a fresh, modern, and contemporary look, premium finishes, modern amenities, and a new 35,000 ft², 850-seat dining hall. The 370,000 ft² expansion provided for four new levels of retail as well as three levels of underground parking.

Currently one of Ottawa’s busiest bus transit hubs, the Rideau Centre incorporated two access points, an important stop along the new LRT Confederation Line. The revitalization attracted many premium retail brands as tenants, including Nordstrom and Simons.

The project included a complete replacement of the existing façade that reinvigorated the building and the area, including a refurbished Ogilvy Building heritage façade.
