Heritage Watch List

Heritage Properties

The Heritage Watch List was created in 2016 through the Mayor’s Heritage Matters Task Force as a tool to monitor designated heritage buildings that are vacant or at risk. The buildings are monitored through the City’s Property Standards By-law (2013-416) which was updated in 2013 to include specific standards for designated heritage properties. A Property Standards Officer visits each property on this list quarterly and issues orders for board-up, graffiti removal, repair, restoration or property maintenance as required.

The list includes all vacant heritage buildings as well as occupied buildings that are deemed to be at risk due to neglect or deterioration. There are several buildings on this list that are currently under development and will be removed from the list once construction is complete and the buildings are occupied.

This list is being provided for information purposes only. The Heritage Watch List  changes frequently so this version may not be the most current list. This list will be updated four times each year. If there is a designated heritage property you are concerned about please contact 3-1-1. For a copy of the most up-to-date list or more information about the list, please contact heritage@ottawa.ca.  This list is up to date as of October 29, 2019.
