CENTRAL CONDOMINIUMS : BEHIND THE SCENES

I recently started to work with a large toronto-based building developer called Urban Capital, specializing in modern multi-residential buildings. The project I'm working on is called Central and is located in the heart of the city of Ottawa.

The first phase of the project is currently under construction. It's a U-Shaped building with 240 loft-style units surrounding a central courtyard. An old church used to be located on the site, and the facade of the old building was preserved and integrated into the design of the new building.

There's a set number of finishes and items that were selected by the lead designer for owners to choose from. My role with this project is to help the owners select the finishes for their condo (i.e. floors, cabinets, tiles, etc). It's a fun process.

You can see below some pictures of the model suites for Phase 1. Each type of floor plan is named after a city. The model suite is called the London.

Central 1 has a lot of interesting features. It has been registered to receive a LEED Silver certification. I have the opportunity to visit the site on a regular basis to check out the progress and learn more about these features. So, I'll be starting a series of blog posts talking about the construction progress and my favorite selection of finishes throughout the process.

Construction started a couple months ago and it's progressing fast. Here's the latest shot of the building's facade.

  1. Hmm... is the design centre where the samples are accessible to the general public? Or is it only after you commit to buying that you get to get a good look at the options?

  2. wow... that was a poorly worded question on my part. Try that again...

    Is the design centre accessible to the general public? I'd like to see the tile/counter combos that your designer picked.

  3. Hi there :) . Yes the sale centre is open to the public. There's open Monday to Thursday, as well as weekends. The detailed schedule is on their website.
