EcoCité Condos and Lofts

The Sustainable Condo is not just a pipedream. EcoCité on the Canal in Ottawa pitches itself as a development of "aggressively green, innovatively designed urban homes." The new 25-unit building has just about every eco-certification imaginable: LEED, Model National Energy Building Codes (exceeded by 50%), EcoLogo building products, Energy Star appliances.... Every resident is also a member of VrtuCar—a shared car booked on an hourly basis. And it's just steps away from parkland. Opens this spring.
