The Eddy Condominiums

The Eddy is a 6 storey, mixed used condominium in the transitioning area of Hintonburg,  in Ottawa, containing a 51 residential units and 6000 sqft of ground floor commercial space.   The project involved the remediation of a brownfield site and achieved targeted environmental goals set under the LEED-H (Multi-Family Midrise) Platinum.  The Eddy has a GFA of 65000 sqft, and provides access to a rooftop terrace equipped with individual garden plots and shared recreational areas.  The 5BY2 puzzle parking system accommodating 47 spots,  was implemented to efficiently contend with the constraints of the footprint and eliminate air pollution under living spaces.   Other environmentally friendly strategies utilized include a high performance building envelope,  a geo-exchange system for heating and cooling to provide operational  cost savings to residents, rainwater harvesting for use in water closets, dedicated ERV’s installed in each unit, as well as many other environmental considerations.

This project won “Best High Rise Building- 50 units or more” in the 2016 GOHBA Housing Design Awards
