With Canada’s 150th anniversary this year (2017), the Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) Arts Court Expansion is one of many downtown revitalization projects. The existing art gallery will remain and continue to operate throughout the construction of the 80,000 sqft expansion. This new shining gem will include 5 floors open to the public, including a new theatre, screening room, classrooms, and exhibition space.
Scheduled for completion in 2018, this $38.8 million development will also include underground parking, over 20 floors of hotel space, rooftop terrace, courtyards, and connection to the existing art gallery.
“This project marks the beginning of a new chapter in Ottawa’s cultural history. The progress [we’re seeing] is preparing the foundation of a long-standing vision for a municipal arts centre for the visual, performing, literary and media arts and for the revitalization of Ottawa’s downtown that will be celebrated for years to come.”
~ Mayor Jim Watson
