Heritage Ottawa: Response to Latest Design for Proposed Addition to Château Laurier | June 2018


Owners of the Château Laurier have unveiled their latest design for a proposed addition to the venerable historic hotel, a National Historic Site of Canada.

Heritage Ottawa remains unimpressed—and is gravely concerned that the City of Ottawa may be on track to approve what would be the most disgraceful act of heritage vandalism of our generation.

Sandy Hill was once home to Ottawa’s élite. Fathers of Confederation, prime ministers, prominent businessmen, civil servants and famous writers have all left some mark of their stay, either in their former homes or in the stories that are still told about them. Their lives and the eclectic architecture that characterizes the neighbourhood provide the inspiration for an exploration of Sandy Hill West.  

This tour will be conducted in French.
