That's really cool. I love the old towns in Eastern Canada that build right up to the river like that.

"Idea Exchange" = annex to the central library, about a block away across the river. The building to the right of the Idea Exchange in the pic generated outrage a few years ago when the building (red brick, iirc) was covered by grey metal cladding. Turned out Cambridge had no provision to protect the heritage. I think they have since tightened things up. By the way, looking at the wall that the Idea Exchange sits above gives an idea of how high the Grand River can (and has in the past) get during spring flood.

^ Gorgeous.

It's interesting to see a bulky-looking sort of hotel like that... they tend to be fairly slender builds.

Looks awesome! For the main part of the building I prefer the back and sides over the front since I don't think they particularly needed the offset blocks illusion, but at the ground level I really enjoy the FS branding detail. Overall very nice.

Don't ask people not to debate a topic. Just stop making debatable assertions. Problem solved.

Mid-century office to residential adaptive re-use in downtown Ottawa. Short video has some great shots from above showing the density of the area.

PiCo Pizza's second Ottawa location opened today. Honestly never heard of them...
