The adjacent Carling transit station and Trillium Pathway will provide quick and convenient access to the hub.
Located within walking distance of Little Italy and Chinatown, residents at Gladstone & Loretta will be able to enjoy the rich cultural diversity these unique neighbourhoods offer. A wide range of restaurants and locally-owned stores can be found along the streets of these vibrant neighbourhoods. Unique festivals and events transform the area into a bustling hub of celebration and cultural expression.
With an ample amount of Retail and Office space, Gladstone & Loretta will become a hub of commercial activity and employment opportunities that will benefit residents and the community. A wide range of retail offerings will make the site remain active throughout the day.
Originally built in 1924, the Standard Bread Building is a piece of Ottawa’s heritage that will be incorporated into the greater Gladstone & Loretta development. The old brick-clad concrete building will be adapted for use as a cultural hub with a variety of creative spaces for artists from around the community while preserving the heritage character of the nearly 100-year-old building.
The adjacent Trillium Multi-Use Pathway will help connect residents and visitors to the greater Capital Pathway network, a series of multi-use pathways covering over 200km throughout the National Capital Region. Open and inviting retail offerings will enhance the streetscape and pedestrian experience along Gladstone Ave.
The site is located less than 50m away from the new Corso Italia transit station, set to be completed by 2022. From here residents will enjoy access to major destinations such as Carleton University, Bayview Transit Hub and the Ottawa International Airport.
