OTTAWA — Morguard is proposing a new hotel and tower on the site of the former National Hotel & Suites in downtown Ottawa, according to the Ottawa Business Journal.
In a proposal recently filed with the city, the developer said it plans to demolish the two existing hotel towers and replace them with two new buildings: a 27-storey, 303-unit hotel and 23-storey condo tower.
Morgaurd said proposed buildings, designed by Toronto-based WZMH Architects, have been designed to fit the overall tone of the neighbourhood.
“The proposed development will extend qualities of the Sparks St. liveliness and will promote an enhanced mixed-use environment that is appropriate to the location and its established community,” said the proposal prepared by FOTENN Consultants.
The proposal has yet to be approved by Ottawa city council. [obj.ca]
