Noise, construction dust, heavy machinery: Construction is underway at Nicholas Street and Daly Avenue in Ottawa's downtown core, soon to be home of the redeveloped Arts Court and the Ottawa Art Gallery.
The $100 million and more expansion of the Ottawa Art Gallery and redevelopment of Arts Court has begun after the City of Ottawa and a consortium of groups agreed to a funding arrangement, the city said on August 5, 2015 (see link below).
Can't wait until the art gallery opens in late 2017. The new Arts Court, plus a new development tower with boutique hotel and condominiums, are expected to open in 2018. The model at the Ottawa City Hall Art Gallery gives a good impression, how big the tower will be.
