The Study Area

Although some aspects of this study consider Centretown as a whole—from the Rideau Canal to Bronson Street and from the Queensway to Gloucester Street— specific attention and analysis focussed on the central part of this area in particular, where the pressure to grow is greatest. This area is referred to as the downtown core. The Core Study Area is generally square in shape and is bounded by Elgin Street to the east and Kent Street to the west, with Highway 417 marking the southern edge and Gloucester Street acting as the northern boundary. The Centretown Heritage Conservation District covers much of the Core Study Area. Situated between the Queensway and Ottawa's central business district, the Core Study Area is dissected by several major commercial streets, including Bank Street, Elgin Street and Somerset Street.
