Lebreton Flats is one of the neighbourhoods in Ottawa whose metamorphosis excites many. Since the early 2000s, there has been a redevelopment plan in place that has transformed the area. Around 2013, this plan was accelerated and the result is a rapidly developing micro-community with luxury apartments and amenities only a few blocks away. Lebreton Flats can only be described with one word: sleek. There is a practical, modern feel to the neighbourhood. The area is not cluttered by shops or leisure spots; this is rather used for parks and open spaces. Yet, there are countless attractions within walking distance that makes the ingenious planning of this place easy to appreciate. Its location along the transit way will almost make the mundane act of catching the bus a real joy. Additionally, the flats are a short walk to the Bayview train station, which gives residents even more transportation options. On a sunny day, you may even be tempted to make the half hour walk into the downtown area and forgo the bus entirely.
Lebreton Flats attracts many middle class families and young professionals. The area has almost twice the average number of common law/ married families living there than in the city of Ottawa. It is a very young community as well, with most residents being between the ages of twenty and forty years. Unlike nearby Chinatown, it does not have as many student inhabitants. This is because of its relative quietness and the comparatively high cost of rental properties here.
Lebreton Flats has a fairly slow-paced and laid back atmosphere. Its quiet, open spaces and the privacy it offers residents is a large contrast from many downtown neighbourhoods. Individuals and families looking to move here are likely to enjoy being close to the action of downtown Ottawa but also appreciate being able to get away from the crowd and escape to its relative isolation. Above all, the Lebreton resident admires modernity and the exceptional design that has made the area so popular amongst urban planners.
