George Street Plaza
Location: ByWard Market Heritage Conservation District, Ottawa ON. / Completed 2017
Client: City of Ottawa
Since its completion and opening in May 2017, the George Street Plaza has been alive with new energy and many visitors. People enjoy coffee and market treats from early morning to well beyond sunset with comfort and safety that could not have been imagined when the old public space was dark and uninviting.
The plaza design respects the heritage of the ByWard Market and uses materials and elements found in the market’s history and surrounding urban context, but with a contemporary interpretation.
