Council rejects Metcalfe St. redevelopment
Controversial plans for a 27-storey development with a hotel at 180 Metcalfe St. were rejected by Ottawa council on Wednesday in a vote that couldn’t have been closer.
With an 11-11 decision, the tie vote means the motion was defeated.
Somerset Coun. Catherine McKenney argued against the hotel portion of the development because it didn’t align with the community design plan (CDP) for the neighbourhood.
