This master plan improves public transit options and recommends new uses for Tunney’s Pasture, a 19-building campus that accommodates 10,000 federal employees in the National Capital Region.
As Canada’s first federally-driven mixed-use project, Tunney’s Pasture serves as a model for sustainable, transit-oriented development.
Working closely with Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and local stakeholders, HOK created a redevelopment master plan rooted in mixed-use and transit-friendly principles. The design provides a flexible framework to guide the site’s development over the next 25 years.
Plans for new office, residential and retail spaces supported by an improved network of streets and open spaces accommodate anticipated increases in the site’s density. The design incorporates the city’s architectural heritage while integrating new buildings with nearby residential neighborhoods.
HOK’s plan aims to reduce auto traffic and encourage people to use Ottawa’s light-rail system and bus network. It incorporates a new Tunney’s Pasture station, including a retail hub and civic plaza, along the forthcoming Confederation Light Rail Transit Line. A network of green spaces, pathways and parks makes it easier for people to walk or ride bikes.
