Ottawa is stepping onto the world-class stage of sustainability and innovation with the development of Zibi, an ultra-efficient community to be created on the former Domtar lands which connect downtown Ottawa to Gatineau, with two condominium developments in Phase 1 on the Ottawa and Gatineau sides respectively.
Rich in history, influences from French, English and First Nations culture will be unified within the core of the community. Zibi, the Algonquin term for “river”, will be surrounded by nature’s beauty with a picturesque waterfront and ample greenspace. It will provide an eco-friendly environment in which residents can work, play and live within their own neighbourhood. The restoration of the Isles will bring back it’s livelihood after years of dereliction.
This site once played an integral role in the history of Canada and the birth of our nation’s capital. From an Aboriginal meeting place and ceremonial grounds, to a mid-voyage stopping place, and eventually a driving industrial force, the Chaudière has been referred to as “The Cradle of Canadian Civilization”. Windmill and Dream Corp. will re-establish the areas’ value as an economically, culturally, and environmentally significant site with much to offer.
