Where is the Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict?
The Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict is located in the city’s core – originally, the Ottawa River to the north, the Rideau Canal to the east, Bronson Street to the west and Gloucester Street to the south.
We have expanded the area over time to include the Westin Hotel, the Ottawa Convention Centre, Ottawa City Hall, and Lisgar High School. The newest addition to the EcoDistrict is Zibi a One Planet community which includes a series of islands in the Ottawa River and part of Gatineau.
It is important to remember that this project is a pilot – and wherever there is an interest in creating a vibrant and more sustainable community, the principles behind the EcoDistrict can be adopted to create new EcoDistricts in other parts of Ottawa.
