Barrhaven Town Centre Development


The Barrhaven Town Centre of today is a vibrant retail hub. Strategically located at the heart of the community, it is poised to become Barrhaven's epicenter for Live, Work, and Play. The Barrhaven Town Centre is located within the boundaries formed by Strandherd Drive, Longfields Drive, the Jock River, and the Kennedy Burnett stormwater pond. 

Minto Communities with Richcraft Group of Companies are initiating an Official Plan Amendment application with the City of Ottawa to revisit the type and density of land use form in the Barrhaven Town Centre. The purpose of this amendment is to:

1. Allow for a development built form that mantains the vision for Live Work Play and that will create transit supportive low-mid-to-high rise development patterns

2. Facilitate development that offers diverse housing typologies and retail uses suitable to market in the short-mid term

3. Promote investment required to complete the public realm and quality civic spaces

4. Support job growth and prosperity

Next Steps

Submission of Application - anticipated by end of year
