Welcome to Kanaal, Zibi’s first Ontario residences. Designed by Barry J. Hobin & Associates Architects Inc., Kanaal is a collection of 61 urban condo flats, and flow-through penthouses.

At 6-stories high, Kanaal rises from the shore of the Ottawa River’s Buchanan Channel, providing rarely-seen upscale island living with the convenience of downtown amenities. On the south side, Kanaal spans the water’s edge of Buchanan Channel offering private waterfront entrances.

On the north side, Kanaal opens onto the beautifully landscaped Head Street Square, a vibrant public courtyard offering a mix of shops, restaurants and cultural spaces.

Inspired by the Dutch architecture of canal homes in Amsterdam, Kanaal condos and towns combine European style with modern, urban finishings. Expansive windows and outdoor terraces spoil you with streaming natural light and stunning vistas. Combined with an island-living feel, Kanaal is the city’s most unique and previously untapped address.



Zibi Is Easy Living
However you like to get around, Zibi makes it easy. By applying best practices in walking, biking, roadway, and parking design, Zibi offers a walkable community concept with little need to travel off-site. A robust bike network ties into the region’s existing and planned bicycle system and the re-establishment of bus service will provide easy access to the site without a car.
Transit Network
Situated between the future Lebreton Pimisi station and the Portage bus transfer station, Zibi is conveniently located at the heart of the National Capital Region’s most transit rich area. Existing bus lines will serve the site with two new stops located along Eddy Street in Gatineau and Booth Street in Ottawa. A public transport system will be available, making frequent sustainable transit services available to residents, workers and visitors.
Bicycle Network
Zibi provides superior bicycle facilities along key routes between Ottawa and Gatineau, extending to existing and future connections. While every street is designed to have slow vehicle speeds, a network of new dedicated bike lanes and off-street multi-use pathways provide safe and convenient connections to and from Zibi.
Pedestrian Network
Zibi’s walking network is benefitted by comfortable sidewalks on both sides of main streets, pedestrian oriented woonerfs, extensive plaza spaces at key interaction points and a robust off-street system of pedestrian paths, multi-use paths and park pathways connecting the districts to one another. Walking routes are designed to connect directly with existing paths and sidewalks in adjacent neighborhoods.
 Kanaal Residential Condos
“Woonerf” is a Dutch term for “living street”. First developed in the Netherlands, it’s a space where pedestrians are the priority and vehicles act as guests. This allows the space to be used in multiple ways — a social/recreational area, a walkway and a laneway for delivery trucks, for example.
Zibi Is Street Smart
Zibi’s streets are conceived as a fully interconnected network of shared use streets and lanes, which promote the ease of movement, between all modes of transportation, through the community and surrounding destinations. With an emphasis on designated pedestrian and bicycle paths, Zibi’s street network also incorporates strong connections to surrounding pathway networks.
Zibi’s streets are much like urban park spaces and plazas. This consistent style will link all districts together through the character and continuity of its streets.

Zibi Is A Fresh Perspective
The redevelopment of this site provides a unique opportunity to create a new set of public open spaces with extraordinary landscapes. In addition to beautifully characterized streetscapes, Zibi will offer nine public outdoor spaces each striving to contribute to a rich mixture of amenities, while maximizing exposure to sun and stunning views.
Head Street Square 
Head Street Square is the village square at the heart of Chaudière West. Positioned to capture maximum sun and wind protection, it maintains access to unparalleled views in all directions. Ample seating, along with a cantilever wooden stage that facilitates a variety of small-scale events, frame the central space of the square.
West End Park 
West End Park is positioned as a park on the water, offering panoramic views of the upper Ottawa river and the falls. The naturalized park is bounded by a multi-use path and features a broad internal pathway, which can be flooded in winter to provide a skating rink and floating boardwalk. A summer water play plaza can be transformed into an ice bar in winter.
Union Square 
Union Square is located near the heritage plaza and is reminiscent of the native edge and historic form of the adjacent board mill. The centre of the square is a street end view park, which connects visually to the Place Zibi on the opposite shore and offers views of the bridges and falls.
East End Park 
East End Park is comprised of a small street end plaza with seating rafts and water features. Succession planting will restore the native vegetation and enhance habitat values, with boardwalks providing access while protecting the landscape.
West Eddy Plaza 
West Eddy Plaza provides an opportunity to experience the former industrial waterfront and dramatic views above the falls. Special attention will be given to improving the pedestrian linkage across Eddy Street where a commemorative assembly of mechanical relics from the former mill is proposed.
East Eddy Plaza 
East Eddy Plaza offers a unique experience of the industrial character of the district. The plaza is connected to surrounding streets by heritage laneways and linear park extensions enriched by surface storm water management.
Place Zibi 
Place Zibi provides stunning views overlooking the river, with restaurants and shops surrounding it. The square is furnished with street trees, broad benches, and special lighting. A set of stairs reach directly down to the water’s edge for seasonal recreational access.
North Shore Park 
North Shore Park forms the northern neighbourhoods. A series of cascades, wetlands, channels, and ponds direct surface runoff toward release at the foot of Laval Street. A network of boardwalks and bridges overlook the pavilion and offer visitors extraordinary views of the Falls, islands and National landmarks.
Capital View Park 
Capital View Park provides a green core to its neighbourhood, framed by unrivalled views of Parliament Hill. The park starts at Laval Street with a small urban square and widens towards the East, including a children’s play area and community agricultural plots.
