FACILITY OVERVIEW
A bold, modern design, a bright naturally-lit interior, magnificent views...the all-new Ottawa Convention Centre will offer an unparalleled, environmentally-responsible setting and support for Ottawa conventions, conferences, meetings and exhibits – large and small. Its 7-storey high sweeping window façade faces the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Thanks for the images.

The last time I was in Ottawa they were still tearing down the old convention centre. Good to see the progress.

I will vote for a good on 'em in this case, just because this is such a dramatic improvement over what was there. In a very sensitive part of the city, right beside the canal, what sort of &^*%$%-for-brains architect ever came up with the windowless, fire-exit only approach to the canal side of the old building.

Although it doesn't really fit in with it's surroundings - I think in this case that's a good thing and it's going to add a lot of interest to one of the most photographed areas of the city.
