Evolution of Lansdowne

lansdowne 2.0 banner

The City of Ottawa and OSEG Partnership

The City of Ottawa and Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group – OSEG partnered in 2012 to renew and revitalize Lansdowne after decades of neglect. Since its redevelopment, Lansdowne has welcomed over 20 million residents and Tourists to major sporting events and championships, cultural celebrations, festivals and concerts, greenspaces, shopping and dining.

Why Lansdowne 2.0

OSEG proposes – and City staff support our proposal – to replace the 55-year-old North Stadium stands and Arena Complex, which has reached the end of its lifecycle. The arena is one of the oldest municipal arenas in Canada and is functionally obsolete relative to comparable modern facilities. The North Stadium Stands are likewise incompatible with the rest of the Lansdowne site and are in general non-compliance with current building codes.

Our Proposal

OSEG’s proposal is consistent with the Guiding Principles developed for Lansdowne in 2010 in partnership with the City of Ottawa, the National Capital Commission, Parks Canada and in consultation with the public. We propose demolishing the North Stadium stands and the arena below. In its place, new public infrastructure will be constructed and will continue to be owned by the City of Ottawa. These will include a new 5,500-seat Event
Centre and a new 11,200-12,000-set North Stadium stands. The proposal also includes the addition of high-density rental and owned residential units including affordable housing, and additional destination-based retail. Access the Complete Proposal.

Events Centre

New Event Centre

This 5,500-seat facility will be built in the east Stadium endzone, with a living green roof that will connect it to the Stadium berm and the Great Lawn. This state-of-the-art venue will be home to the Ottawa 67’s and Ottawa Blackjacks and will host world-class arts and entertainment, concerts and events geared to a facility of this size.

New North Stadium Stands

This 11,200-12,000 seat addition would complete the stadium rebuild begun with the completion of the South Stadium stands in. It will be home to the Ottawa REDBLACKS and Atlético Ottawa and host large scale events including sporting championships, stadium concerts and festivals.

additional housing

Additional Rental and Owned Residential
Units including Affordable Housing

By adding rental, owned and affordable residential units plus retail integrated into the new North Stadium stands, our proposal will promote a sustainable live, work, and play philosophy. Lansdowne will truly become both a civic gathering place and a 15-minute neighbourhood that meets density targets set out in the new Official Plan.

A Continued Focus On Placemaking

As noted above, Lansdowne 2.0 will respect Guiding Principles set out in 2010. We are committed to recognizing and celebrating Algonquin Anishnaabe’s history, art and culture, respecting heritage building views and providing access to the Great Lawn.

A Site that Promotes Active Transportation

Lansdowne is ideally situated for active transportation and will continue to support cycling and pedestrian-friendly connections.

A Taxation Neutral Undertaking

The cost of the new Event Centre, North Stadium Stands and adjacent public space, including the berm replacement, is $330 million. The incremental taxation and air rights fees will, along with ticket fees and
direct cash distributions to the City from the Lansdowne Partnership will fund the new municipal infrastructure on a tax-neutral basis for City taxpayers.
