Apartment for rent

To increase the availability of rental housing in Ottawa, City Council has approved a zoning amendment that gives the green light to the construction and establishment of eight-to-12-unit low-rise apartments in inner-urban neighbourhoods.

Centretown, Sandy Hill, Vanier, Overbrook, Hintonburg, and Westboro will host of these new housing locations, it was revealed by the City of Ottawa on Wednesday.  

The city says the amendment changes zoning regulations — minimum lot-size and green space requirements and a cap on the number of units — that have prevented newer low-rise apartments in the established group of zones. 

The amendment, the city adds, will gradually increase the apartment supply to better accommodate the growing number of people who want to live in central Ottawa.
