300 Mìwåte Private, Ottawa

About This Project

Project Background

Common at Zibi is the first purpose-built rental building within the Zibi community on the Ontario side, which is part of a comprehensive development plan. Situated at 300 Mìwåte Private, Zibi’s location is unparalleled. No other community boasts 34 acres of waterfront in the downtown cores of both Ottawa and Gatineau. Framed by Portage Bridge and Waterfront Quarter to the East and Chaudière Crossing and Albert Island to the West, this community will provide unprecedented connectivity to both cities and offer stunning views of the falls and Parliament Hill.  

About Zibi

Zibi enjoys an unrivalled waterfront location, rich in cultural heritage and history. Following hundreds of years of industrial operations, these 34 acres bordering the Ottawa River will finally be reintroduced to the National Capital Region. Zibi will now be home to thousands of people who will discover everything – from the world-class parks of North Shore to the premiere shopping and dining of Chaudière West – at their doorstep. This is why Zibi is the Waterfront City.
