Ottawa’s recently completed Lansdowne Park was the recipient of this year’s Ottawa Urban Design Award for Excellence for Visions and Masterplans.
The jury cited Lansdowne Park as “an excellent example of revitalizing development that balances social, cultural, environmental and economic sustainability. It fulfills the concept of ‘mixed use’ in the truest meaning of the phrase; a vibrant blend of residential, retail/commercial, recreation/entertainment, civic and green space program. A high quality pedestrian-first public realm is evident throughout; and built form scale and transition is particularly successful.”
