Larco Investments has proposed a new design for the rear addition to the Château Laurier hotel. Larco Investments owns the hotel. They have retained the architecture firm of Architects Alliance to design the addition.
The new design is the result of settlement reached between the owner and Heritage Ottawa following legal challenges of the earlier proposal.
The proposed addition requires heritage and site plan approvals from the City of Ottawa, federal approvals from the National Capital Commission and a decision from the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal before construction can occur.
