The NCC is negotiating with the RendezVous LeBreton Group to transform the 21-hectare site just west of the Parliament Buildings along the historic Ottawa River. Negotiations are expected to continue for at least another year. Periodic updates will be provided at NCC public board meetings.
In 2014, the NCC moved forward on its priority of revitalizing LeBreton Flats. In responding to the NCC’s call to the private sector for imaginative approaches, the Devcore Canderel DLS Group and the RendezVous LeBreton Group presented detailed proposals to the NCC in December of 2015.
As part of the evaluation process, the public provided extensive input through in-person and online public consultations.
Both teams passed the mandatory point-rated stage of the solicitation process, and RendezVous LeBreton Group scored highest. Following preliminary discussions, the NCC granted preferred proponent status to RendezVous LeBreton Group in November 2016, and the parties have since begun formal negotiations.
A total of 7,939 Canadians submitted written comments on the proposals, and more than 3,000 participated in the open house and live broadcast in January and February 2016. The evaluation committee benefited immensely from the extensive comments provided by the public and stakeholders in 2016.
The NCC will continue negotiations with the RendezVous LeBreton Group, with the objective of reaching an agreement on the terms and conditions governing the future development of LeBreton Flats. The final agreement will be submitted to the federal government for approval.
Once the federal approval phase is completed, the project will continue through the City of Ottawa’s municipal planning process, where citizens will have additional opportunities to engage and provide comments.
