On the edge of Old Ottawa South, there are several important federal government buildings like the blue mirrored Canada Post’s headquarters, the former CBC heritage building, as well as Vincent Massey Park and Hog’s Back Park.
It is important to note that the Confederation Heights area is located five kilometres south of Ottawa’s downtown core, and totals approximately 188 hectares/465 acres.
The site under development is bound by the Rideau River to the north and west, Data Centre Road and Sawmill Creek to the east, and Brookfield Road to the south. Property owners on and adjacent to the study area include the Government of Canada, the National Capital Commission, Health Canada, Canada Post, the City of Ottawa, and CN Rail.
