Central condos set to revitalize Ottawa's Mid-Town

The first phase of the Central project at the corner of Bank and Gladstone is shaping up nicely and if last night's ground breaking party for Phase 2 is any indication, the Central condos are set to breathe life into a rather sterile section of Ottawa that I refer to as 'Mid-Town'.

With The Glebe under the siege of construction for the next two years, those moving into the neighbourhood will be looking northwards on Bank St for shops and services. While there is already a good selection including Rama Lotus, Whalesbone, Bramasole Diner, Staples, the White Monkey and Spaceman Music, I look forward to the influx of new business that will set up shop to take advantage of the 500 plus new residents settling into the neighbourhood over the coming 2-3 years.
