Booth St. District Redevelopment—How Heritage Evolution Will Impact Our Urban Environments
Aerial view, block designated for re-development, looking northwest.
Set to be the next “hot spot” in Ottawa, the Booth District aims to blend heritage infrastructure with new development to create a dynamic and exciting area attractive to all users. Previously occupied by the federal government as the laboratories and facilities for Natural Resource Canada, the Booth St complex was used for research and testing in a wide variety of desciplines related to mining and metallurgy, as well as the development of fuels, explosives, and economic minerals.
Upon completion, the re-development of the Booth District will represent a benchmark of how heritage sites can be developed to have a second life for people to live, work, and play.
