Update: NCC to start negotiating LeBreton Flats redevelopment with Senators-backed group

One of Ottawa’s largest urban redevelopment projects took a major step forward on Thursday morning, but the start of construction still remains more than a year away.
The National Capital Commission board of directors voted today to officially recognize RendezVous LeBreton as the preferred proponent to redevelop the 53-acre vacant property west of downtown.
The designation means the NCC can start officially negotiating an agreement with RendezVous LeBreton, a process that’s expected to take at least a year.
