Winston Place Plaza Development
The City of Ottawa is developing Winston Place, a pedestrian space at the southern end of Winston Avenue in Westboro. The new plaza will see the inside turned outside with three zones along the space representing different rooms in a house. New ‘green walls’ will be installed for ivy to grow up over time adding colour and vibrancy to the space along with new seating areas and a specially commissioned light sculpture. Construction is scheduled to begin in early summer 2014 and be complete by the end of October 2014.
