788 Upper Ottawa | 13.0m | 3fl | Proposed

$2M office, apartment building planned for Upper Ottawa

Construction on a $2-million office and apartment building on Upper Ottawa Street is expected to begin in the spring.
The first occupant will be Dr. Julius Losonci, who is moving his Eastmount Family Dentistry office from its current location at 1221 Limeridge Rd. East.
The 10,000-square-foot building, located at 788 Upper Ottawa is being developed by Losonci’s wife, Zahra Arabkaramy.
“It’s going to be a very high-end building,” Arabkaramy said, noting there will be eight “luxury” residential apartment units. “Everything is going to be beautiful.”
The dental office will be about 3,000 sq. ft. Arabkaramy said she is in talks with another healthcare provider to occupy the other ground floor unit.
Construction should begin in March and be completed in the fall.
Arabkaramy bought the property in 2011 and received the required zoning change in 2012. A building permit was issued last month.
Ward 6 councillor Tom Jackson said while he doesn’t always see infill developments as a panacea to housing needs in the city because it doesn’t always fit in with character of the neighbourhood, this development seems like a good fit.
He said he’s been assured there will be an adequate buffer between the development and the homes behind it on Winchester Boulevard behind it. Plus, the owners are occupying the building.
“I think that’s incredibly important,” Jackson said.
