The former site of the Main Garage on the corner of Gladstone and Kent St has been demolished to make way for the Centropolis condo project:
Being a former gas station, excavation will require the removal of all contaminated soil and an environmental bill of health from the province before construction can start. At 4 storeys tall, this will be wood frame construction and add 121 condos to mid-town Ottawa, in my opinion a neighbourhood to watch.
An interesting side note: Claridge sought to develop this site in 2002, applying to the City for a variance which would permit 11-storeys, on a site zoned for five. The ensuing outcry saw the project cancelled and Claridge moved north a few blocks to build The Strand on the corner of Somerset and Kent, perhaps their most popular condo to date.
