Construction begins on Central Condominiums

This week saw the end of an era with the demolition of Bank Street's Metropolitan Bible Church, making way for downtown Ottawa's latest condo development, Central:

Courtesy of a heritage designation, the church's Bank St facade will be left intact and form the centerpiece of Central's resident lounge, complete with WiFi, billiards and a media room for movies and other big screen events.

I like what I've seen so far at The Mondrian so am optimistic that Urban Capital's latest condo will breathe new life into this part of Ottawa's mid-town, as well as providing a bridge between The Glebe and downtown proper. More on Central to follow in a subsequent post.
