Have you ever considered selling your home and purchasing a condo? You wouldn’t be the only one. Although downtown condo living might not be for everyone, there is a healthy market for this lifestyle in Ottawa. With a myriad of new buildings propping up in Centretown and the surrounding neighbourhoods, it seems that there is a condo – and a condo lifestyle – for nearly everyone. Of course, there will always be a market for sleek, trendy buildings that offer luxurious units to urban dwellers.
One of the trendiest new buildings under construction downtown Ottawa is The Slater by Broccolini, a 22-storey tower located at 199 Slater Street near the corner of Bank. The Slater’s website describes the building as “Ottawa’s ‘it’ address”. Everything from its unique mid-century design to its convenient location make The Slater an ideal option for those buyers interested in elegant, modern condos.
The condo is designed to include both residential apartments and hotel rooms which will offer separate corridors and elevators for the different types of units. Residents can choose from a variety of spacious floor plans which range in size from 400+ square foot studios to two-bedrooms that can be up to over 900 square feet. Additional penthouse units range from 1063 square feet to 1578 square feet and include private terraces offering spectacular views of the city. Buyers can choose between one-storey and two-storey penthouses.
Every unit includes elegant, modern features that are designed to impress, including nine foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and sleek European-style kitchens. As their website notes, “each element has been fully thought out, every finish carefully selected. Cohesive spaces flow beautifully, and natural light streams in through dramatic floor to ceiling windows.”
Residents of 199 Slater will also enjoy the many amenities the location has to offer. The building will be within walking distance of the many restaurants, cafes, and retail shops that line both Bank and Elgin Streets. The Byward Market and other popular destinations are also a short walk away, such as Parliament, the National Gallery, and several museums. For those buyers who would like to be able to escape into the picturesque natural landscapes Ottawa has to offer, parks and biking or walking trails are mere minutes away, along the Rideau Canal or the Ottawa River.
The project is expected to be complete in spring of 2015. To view more details, including pricing and floor plans, visit their website at theslater.ca.
