The Eddy is a building that is a perfect complement to Hintonburg – eclectic, sustainable, mixed-use and award-winning. The Eddy is not a project that could exist in Barrhaven or Orleans, and for that matter wouldn’t be right in The Glebe or Manor Park. It is a building that speaks proudly to its neighbourhood, and is sure to become an icon of ‘Hintonburgness’ for decades to come.
The first thing that strikes people about The Eddy is the arresting architectural design. Bold angles and colours in a compact six-story form ensure The Eddy draws attention. Online commentary calls it ‘cool and funky, just like Hintonburg’, ‘one of my favourite new condo builds’, ‘a beautiful statement piece’, ‘completely different’, and ‘rather orange’. The Eddy is a building for people who don’t want cookie-cutter, aren’t afraid to be unique, and have something to say.
What you can’t see are the design features that make this one of the most environmentally friendly condominium buildings in the country. Heating and cooling is provided by geoexchange (geothermal). Rooftop vegetable growing plots provide a community amenity. Materials were chosen carefully to ensure optimal indoor air quality and a light ecological footprint. The building is on target to achieve LEED Platinum status, the highest level in the LEED rating system.
Resting proudly in the heart of Hintonburg, a short stroll confirms all the reasons that this area has been recognized as one of the best neighbourhoods in the City. Hintonburg is a foodies paradise, with some of the best food and beverage establishments in the City. Walk to everything, including a community centre, an arena, great shopping, restaurants, cafes and so much more. With a Walkscore of 93, and a bike score of 99, you can easily access all of your needs without having to get in the car.
If you do need a car, The Eddy has a ground-breaking puzzle parking system. This automated valet parking system was a first in Ontario, bringing over proven Dutch technology. This system reduces emissions in the building as cars are generally not running in the garage. Because cars are not running in the garage, ventilation and lighting requirements are less.
