129 Main Street – Live in the Heart of it All
One of the great conveniences of condo living is being in close proximity to almost everything you need. With Main Street acting as the connective channel between many of Ottawa’s central neighborhoods, Old Ottawa East is one of the most rapidly evolving neighborhoods in the city. The local population of roughly 7,000 is projected to increase by 25% over the next two years. This influx will give way to many new shops, services, restaurants, and cultural activities.
129 Main Street offers buyers the chance to invest in this burgeoning urban region!
So, what’s around in the neighborhood worth calling home?
The Rideau Canal
Just an 8 minute walk away from 129 Main Street, the Rideau Canal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers more than 4 miles of walking and bike paths. The Canal’s biggest draw is the fact that it turns in to the world’s longest skating rink during the winter months. Where else can you get to work on skates?
Accessibility to both elementary and secondary schools, as well as proximity to universities is an important consideration for most condo buyers. There is no shortage of options when you live at 129 Main Street! Old Ottawa East is home to Saint Paul University, Lady Evelyn Alternative School, St. Nicholas Adult High School and Immaculata High School. The University of Ottawa is 2.5 km away and Carleton University is less than 4 km away.
Access to Public Transit
OC Transpo route 5 serves the Old Ottawa East community. Within walking distance, Lees Transit Station allows residents to reach nearly all other destinations in the city. Downtown can be reached in a matter of 10 minutes. Eventually, you will also be able to catch the LRT on Lee’s Avenue!
Elgin Street Nightlife and Entertainment
You will love being a stone’s throw from Elgin Street – just a 5-minute bike ride from 129 Main Street! The strip is home to an endless supply of ma’ and pa’ restaurants, sports bars, and cocktail lounges. Elgin Street also turns into “Sens Mile” during the NHL playoffs.
The Glebe and Lansdowne Park
There is no shortage of shops, restaurants and pubs to visit in the Glebe, only a short walk or bike ride from Old Ottawa East. Go catch a football game, enjoy a concert under the stars or peruse the farmer’s market at Lansdowne Park, Ottawa’s latest attraction for food and entertainment. Residents of Old Ottawa East look forward to the completion of a new footbridge connecting Fifth Avenue to Clegg Street by the Fall of 2019.
