OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Dec. 4, 2012) – Ottawa-based residential developer Windmill Development Group has unveiled the condo of the future, a sustainable infill condominium building that marries stringent green innovation with modern design and genuine community improvement.

The Eddy is a six-storey, 57-unit condo development in the heart of Hintonburg, one of Ottawa’s fastest growing and hippest downtown neighbourhoods. The low-rise, angle-shaped building makes the most of the limited space of a former parking lot and serves as an innovative model for how developers and community associations can work together to make intensification work.

“Canada’s larger urban centres are embracing intensification to address population growth, optimize existing infrastructure and costs, and reduce traffic,” said Rodney Wilts, Development Manager, Windmill Development Group. “Our experience is that intensification doesn’t have to come at the expense of the community. With The Eddy, we are again proving that we can work within community design plans, while providing the most effective green technologies and visually appealing designs.”

“From consultation to design, Windmill’s project has helped us achieve our goals of encouraging new buildings that fit into the Wellington streetscape, and promoting an active, creative and involved community,” said Jay Baltz of the Hintonburg Community Association. “We truly believe that The Eddy and its residents will contribute to and improve our neighbourhood.”
