Neighbourhoods

Neighbourhoods

The city of Ottawa can generally be divided into 4 different sections: Central Ottawa, East End, West End, and South End. Each of these sections contains at least 12 different districts and neighbourhoods.

Neighbourhoods

Central Ottawa

For example, the Lebreton Flats neighbourhood of Central Ottawa is home to rapid development of low-rise and high-rise condos that have garnered significant interest from prospective homebuyers. The modern design of these condos is particularly enticing to younger populations entering the workforce. On the other hand, Sandy Hill is located right beside the University of Ottawa and is home to many of its students. The community consists of several detached homes where students can live together in order to save money on the monthly rent costs.

The East End

The East End, as previously mentioned, is home to some of the most expensive properties in the city. In particular, Rockliffe Park and New Edinburgh contain a majority of said properties. It is no surprise to see that high-profile ambassadors, scientists, and wealthy business owners tend to occupy these homes. All of the homes are detached, with each holding multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. It is not uncommon to see amenities such as tennis courts and pools being a part of these homes due to the thousands of square feet that these properties occupy.

The West End

The West End is primarily composed of suburban communities that are extremely dense in the number of homes that are available. These are primarily townhomes that are aggregated within a few feet of each other, mixed with a few detached properties that are larger in size. With nearby access to major roads, residents can commute to their workplace without any problems. These neighbourhoods only contain a few chain retail stores due to the high population density.

The South End

The South End contains the least amount of real estate development, yet contains one of the most difficult real estate markets to break into. One of its most notable neighbourhoods is the Alta Vista area. Due to the old age of these properties – at least half a century – and the convenient location that provides nearby access to all of the city’s main services, residents will very rarely put their homes up for sales and they are bought just as quickly as they are advertised. Homes here include detached homes, semi-detached homes, bungalows, and apartments. The properties here contain a large amount of free space and vegetation in relation to the size of the home.
