City invites feedback on Château Laurier redevelopment

Ottawa – The launch of a process for public feedback on the proposed redevelopment of the Château Laurier was announced today at the City’s Planning Committee.

The City has received a Site Plan Control application for the development and that information is now publicly available at ottawa.ca/chateaulaurier. Members of the public have 28 days to review the project and submit feedback, including through an online form and via email at chateaulaurier@ottawa.ca.

The proposal will be refined by City staff following their review and public feedback. Owing to the local and national importance of the Château Laurier, a special heritage working group, comprised of nationally respected heritage professionals and a representative from Heritage Ottawa, has been established to provide advice to the applicant, the City, and the National Capital Commission.

There will be additional opportunities to provide feedback before the project comes before Council, including when it considered by the Committee of Adjustment, Built Heritage Sub-Committee and Planning Committee later this year. The City will also organize a community session for information and comments before these committees review the proposal.

Residents are encouraged to review the design and share their feedback on this iconic city building.
