Zibi Situated on the banks of the Ottawa River, Zibi is located in both the City of Ottawa and the City of Gatineau, something that has never been done before. In Ottawa, Zibi rests on the western edge of downtown, consists of both the Chaudière and Albert Islands and is surrounded by the Ottawa River. These islands are physically disconnected from both cities by the river and present an opportunity to create a unique sense of place amongst the heritage buildings on both islands. In Gatineau, the lands are within the downtown core of the city and provide an opportunity to extend the city out to the banks of the river. Through this multi-phase development, we will transform the derelict land into a blend of residential housing types of low and high rise condominium towers and townhomes, commercial and office space, unique waterfront plazas and outdoor squares, recreational facilities, and more. Truly one-of-a-kind, Zibi combines unparalleled views of the Ottawa River, Parliament Hill, Chaudière Falls, and downtown Ottawa and Gatineau skylines framed by a modern architectural design that still respects the heritage of the area. Zibi is where nature, culture, heritage and the joys of life culminate.
