Yesterday Claridge Condos tweeted that "Our #ClaridgeIcon sales centre has moved to 200 Lett Steet. BRING ON CONSTRUCTION!" This is great news for those standing behind the future tallest tower (45 stories or 420ft) of Ottawa. Quoted in a recent Ottawa Citizen article, Bill Malhotra (founder and president of Claridge Homes) said that 71 of the 320 units (22%) in ICON have sold, which includes half of the penthouse units.
ICON will be located at Preston and Carling, where Little Italy meets Dow's Lake. The building will house a restaurant on the main floor; the next two levels will be Claridge offices; and there will be a party room, yoga room, guest suites, a billiard room and a swimming pool for residents.
Construction is set to start December 1st, 2014. Occupancy is set for December 3rd, 2018.
