589 Rideau Street, Ottawa
Wallis House located at 589 Rideau Street is a classic heritage building unlike no other. Constructed in 1883 in the Byward Market, this building was originally one of Ottawa's first modern hospitals. After the hospital closed in 1924 the building served as a seminary, barracks, veteran housing, an armoury and during the Second World War Canadian Military Soldiers occupied the building. In 1990, Wallis House was officially designated a Heritage Building by the City of Ottawa. Following this designation, Smallwood of Andrex Holdings, in partnership with Wilberfoss Inc and Domicile, acquired the property and converted the interior of the building to the current 46 authentic loft condominiums that were designed keeping in mind the heritage significance of this amazing building.
