Beaver Barracks housewarming this Saturday

The CCOC is hosting a party this weekend to celebrate the housewarming of the 254 units in the five buildings that make up the Beaver Barracks project, next door to the YMCA. The second phase of the project is finished and people are moving in:

These two buildings are 100and 200 Victory Gardens Private, which are surrounded on three sides by the development's larger buildings along Argyle, Metcalfe and Catherine.

The party will be this Saturday, September 22 (which is also International Car Free Day*). Here are the details from the invitation e-mail (and yes, you are invited!):

I've got a big stockpile of photos and information related to this project that I'd like to eventually write up, but there's only so much time. You'll have to settle for searching my blog for posts with the Beaver Barracks label.

The CCOC has a dedicated Beaver Barracks website has many photos of the construction, designs, and other information about the development.

*Aside: Ottawa's Car Free Day celebrations used to be much more prominent, but has petered out from road closure, to partial road closure, to info fair outside City Hall, to essentially nothing. The City of Ottawa's contribution this year is little more than a media event to visit a business owner who rides a bicycle. The University of Ottawa has had Car Free Day celebrations for many years (including the 2007 edition which I recently posted about), and they have led to permanent changes that turn car space over to people space.
