Project overview

Generally bounded by Somerset Street West, Highway 417, Breezehill Avenue, Preston Street, and Booth Street (south of Balsom Street), the Gladstone Station District today is a unique area within Ottawa brimming with both history and future potential. The vibrant neighbourhoods of Little Italy and Hintonburg on the east and west sides of the existing O-Train corridor, the presence of civic and federal institutions, the multi-use pathway leading to any number of streets or destinations within just minutes, including either the Ottawa River, or Dow's Lake and Central Experiment Farm, are just a few characteristics that shape the identity of the Gladstone District.

Study Area

Gladstone Station Study Area

With a future Light Rail Transit Station identified at Gladstone Avenue (near the O-Train corridor), historically large, often underutilized land parcels within the area, and as part of the broader change that is occurring within the City as directed by the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) and the City's Official Plan (OP), the Gladstone Station District will become increasingly attractive to both development and prospective urban dwellers. The District has the potential to emerge as a significant area of high quality re-urbanisation within the city.

The Gladstone Station District CDP process will work collaboratively with the community, including key property owners and residents to explore, develop and recommend a vision and design concept to guide private development and public works projects over the next 20 years.
