Hintonburg Connection was Phase 2 of a multi-phase redevelopment and is an 18-storey, 245,000 sq. ft. mixed-use building that includes 204 rental units, as well as a three-storey residential component facing Carruthers Avenue, atop three storeys of underground parking to serve the building's tenants and visitors. The rental apartments range from 350 sq. ft. to 1,070 sq. ft., offering a variety of layouts, and there are three commercial retail/rental suites occupying the edge that runs along Scott Street.
The three-storey building fronting Carruthers contains eight apartment flats of 1,250 sq ft, and was designed to complement the existing school house as well as the 18-storey component. Morley Hoppner was both co-developer and construction manager for this project, providing both preconstruction and construction services. The project was completed successfully in 2020.
The first phase of this development (Yard & Station) received an Award of Distinction from the Ontario Home Builders’ Association, as well as two Design Excellency Awards from the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association.
