Winner: Marche St. Charles Market, Ottawa
The repurposed church will be transformed into a restaurant and local marketplace, where its grounds will once again serve its neighbours with seasonal attractions. The new condos and townhomes will wrap around the church to create a European-style marketplace with cafés and restaurants, as well as outside public spaces and gardens.
Poured concrete was used for the structure of levels one through six. Levels seven and eight are a mixture of steel with concrete floors.
