CCOC’s most recent project, 143 – 153 Arlington Ave. has been formally recognized by the City of Ottawa for its commitment to a collaborative development process by receiving Ottawa’s first biannual Community Partnership Award.
On October 9th, at the City’s Urban Design Awards, Councillor Jeff Leiper presented CCOC’s team and community partners with the award. Before awarding the honour, Councillor Leiper commended the City on their choice to establish a new design accolade that recognizes the importance of collaboration and establishing a strong dialogue between developers and the communities they work in.
As described by the City, the Community Partnership Award is presented to:
“ a project of any scale that highlight the critical role of establishing a strong dialogue between all stakeholders and fostering exceptional cooperation, partnership, and/or engagement in achieving good urban form, design excellence, and context sensitivity.”
More information on this award and the rest of those presented by the City’s Planning, Development and Construction team can be found here: https://ottawa.ca/en/planning-development-and-construction/events
We at CCOC and Cahdco are grateful to have completed this successful project with our community partners and development team which includes: CCOC staff and volunteers, the Dalhousie Community Association, the Centretown Community Association, Councillor Catherine McKenney, CSV Architects, and Taplen Commercial Construction.
Thank you to the City staff and review panel who organized the Urban Design Awards, as well as our team, and Community Partners who made the project a success. Lastly, thank you everyone who attended the event to show their support, I hope to see you there again soon.
