Fifth Avenue Court at 99 Fifth Avenue is slated for redevelopment. The proposal, prepared by Fotenn Consultants for the building’s owner, Minto, is for an eight-storey residential building with 124 condos, and includes two storeys of underground parking and additional ground-level parking for a total of 122 parking spaces. It is proposed that the two-storey Bank Street façade be retained.

Minto requires a number of planning permissions through a zoning bylaw amendment.

The city is inviting comments about this proposal. Please have a look at the detailed proposal on the City of Ottawa website (development # D02-02-17-0113), which can be found by following the links at
