I was taking the bus yesterday morning when I noticed that the old Olgivy’s building on Rideau street finally had a fence around it. I am sad to see this building go as my GF and I do love the look of it and have had many a conversations about how this building could have housed one of the many new popular chain department stores, think H&M (which is still absent from downtown). With the new fence up, I am assuming that they will begin work on it shortly in order to prepare the walls to be incorporated into part […]

Another random piece of Ottawa architecture for you today. A beautiful statue and a beautiful clock as seen in the Byward market. You would think they could be atop almost any of the old building in the Byward Market. Yet, sadly they are not. Say hello to the Lone Star Texas Grill!     [google_map address=’144′ coordinates=’45.427931,-75.690444′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

Another Ottawa landmark with a great history behind it for you this morning. I won’t go into the details about its history (Wikipedia Article), because I don’t want to be late for work again this morning… I do have a history of getting caught up reading interesting articles about Ottawa landmarks and their history. Also for those of you with dogs, another interesting discovery for you this morning. Did you know that Lemieux Island is home to a huge dog park? If your looking for something different, perhaps something for you guys to check out.   [google_map address=’143′ coordinates=’45.413907,-75.726974′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

Was up early again this morning in the hopes of catching an amazing sunrise in the middle of the Ottawa River. Sadly it wasn’t meant to be. Thankfully I managed to sneak a peak of the incredibly ugly Portage Complexe in Gatineau. Somehow at 6:35 in the morning, all lit up in the night sky, it don’t look to bad! Hopefully, not too many people were already working! I would dread the day if I ever had to start work that early.    [google_map address=’142′ coordinates=’45.414422,-75.727398′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]
