While it might seem like the amenities rarely get used in a building, for those that take advantage of them, its like adding extra rooms onto your condo for free! (Well... yeah you pay for them, but still)
Lets look at which condo buildings around Ottawa have pools!
Claridge (especially lately) has been a big believer in amenities and nice big pool areas. Take a look at Claridge Plaza (phase 1-4), La Tiffany (phase 1 and 2), Lebreton Flats (250 Lett), Tribeca (pool under construction), and eventually Claridge ICON (est 2018), etc.
Urban Capital has started including resort styled pools with The Mondrian (324 Laurier) and the Hideaway (on Mcleod).
Mastercraft Starwood, known for high quality amenities includes pools at SOHO Lisgar (300 Lisgar) and soon SOHO Champange. SOHO Parkway only gets a rooftop hottub with some of the best views of the city... (sarcasm...).
Richcraft has built a few pools including, The Galleria (200 Besserer), The Galleria Phase 2 (238 Besserer), The Laurier (570 Laurier), and soon to be built The Bowery.
Other central buildings with pools include 90 George St, 160 George Street, 199 Kent, 500/530 Laurier Ave, 470 Laurier Ave, 556 Laurier Ave, 151 Bay, 20 The Driveway.... etc. The list goes on.
