That is one great picture! I love how much of your urban area you can see. Ottawa looks like a halfway point of Rust Belt & East Coast/New England/Maritimes/Quebec styles in this picture. Dunno if that holds true at street though.

Will we be getting more neighborhood tours of Ottawa in the next few months?

Badass shot. The Canadian parliment building is one of my favorite structures anywhere.

Flar, this is one awesome shot. Honestly, the best downtown Ottawa shot ever.

Imagine in a few years, with Claridge Plaza 3 and 4 plus the other buildings scheduled for the core. We may not have height, but we can claim to have a very unique looking city, and because of you we can appreciate it more. Thank you.

I think more of the east than rust belt, with strong French Canadian overtones. Ottawa was more of a 19th century mill town like out east rather than a 20th century centre of industry like the midwest/rust belt cities.

Of course! And I think I've collected enough Ottawa shots for a nice variety thread too.

Height is lacking, but the density is there. I'm beginning to think of Ottawa as having some qualities of a small European city.

Higher! (and through a boardroom window, with my old point and shoot)
