New Affordable Rental Housing in Ottawa
February 9, 2015

Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing - The governments of Canada and Ontario celebrated the official opening of 140 Den Haag Drive in Ottawa today. The construction of this new rental housing property has supported economic growth and helped create 185 jobs in Ontario while helping meet the housing needs of low-income individuals and families, and people with disabilities in Ottawa. 

Royal Galipeau, Member of Parliament for Ottawa-Orléans, on behalf of the Honourable Candice Bergen, Minister of State (Social Development); the Honourable Madeleine Meilleur, Member of Provincial Parliament for Ottawa-Vanier, on behalf of the Honourable Ted McMeekin, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing; and Jim Watson, Mayor of the City of Ottawa, made the announcement today.

The $8.23 million investment provided by the federal and provincial governments has been used to create 74 new rental housing units at 140 Den Haag Drive. The building also houses the administrative offices for Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (OCISO) Non-Profit Housing.  The affordable rental project consists of an eight-storey apartment building offering 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units, and ten 4-bedroom townhouses on either side of the building with individual street entrances. All tenants have access to a roof garden located on the third floor, as well as on-site laundry facilities with card-operated machines and a bicycle room on the ground floor. The building also features four stories of photovoltaic solar panels on the south-facing facade, as well as a sedum green roof.
