Crescent Manor

Well stop the presses! After years of looking at what I thought was Ottawa’s Street’s version of the Docherty Hole, work has finally commenced on the Condos apartments that are replacing Crescent Lanes Bowling Alley.

While I’m sure the shitty Windsor housing market, and the locally held belief that McMansions are a dream come true, are major factors in the delays and the switch from sales to rental units.

None the less, it is nice to see new residential construction in the core of the city. Best of all the designs make it look like it will be a very urban project.
