The Livmore Brand to Make its Ottawa Debut
May 9, 2023
300 McRae Avenue will become the newest addition to GWLRA’s growing Livmore residential portfolio
Our construction team recently poured the ceremonial last bucket of concrete onto the roof of an active development project in Ottawa, Ontario. 300 McRae Avenue, once complete, will be branded as The Livmore Westboro Village, becoming the latest addition in a series of Livmore properties across Eastern Canada. Westboro Village joins Toronto properties, Bay & Gerrard and High Park, and Ville-Marie in Montreal.
“Westboro is a vibrant and sought-after neighbourhood in Ottawa known for its trendy shops and one-of-a-kind restaurants. The new Livmore community is in a prime location on the doorsteps of the new Westboro light rail station and only minutes away from the Ottawa River. The Livmore Westboro Village will be the perfect home for those looking for the freedom and active lifestyle that comes with renting.” – Nikola Parenta, Senior Manager, Development
What does it mean to ‘live more’?
Launched in 2018, The Livmore brand was built on the premise that you can do more in life with the flexibility of a mortgage-free lifestyle. It’s about the security of tenure offered through renting. It’s about being centrally located next to amenities like transit, shopping, and restaurants with access to in-house best-in-class facilities. The fact that Ottawa will be home to the fourth Livmore branded community speaks to the equity that the brand has built with each new development. That combined with the enthusiastic response in the marketplace makes us highly optimistic about the popularity of the project.
Coming soon: The Livmore Westboro Village
Scheduled for occupancy in Winter 2024, The Livmore Westboro Village will be a 26-storey tower connected to a 4-storey base. The development will add 336 rental units, including 11 family-oriented townhouses in the podium level, and 9,000 square feet of retail space to the community. Boasting an impressive amenities package, the property will include rooftop terraces with BBQs, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a dog run and pet spa, a media room, lounges, and a host of in-suite and building technologies.
“Our Livmore properties are all about elevating the rental living experience. SmartONE technology will be implemented at The Livmore Westboro Village allowing residents to set the heating and cooling in their units, lock and unlock their suite doors, and control guest access - all from their smartphones. The building will also include an integrated converged network connecting all building systems. This will alert our team of any operational issues, allowing them to be repaired in the timeliest manner.” – John Bannock, Senior Director, Development

The GWLRA team is looking forward to identifying opportunities across Eastern Canada and beyond to expand The Livmore brand and provide the highest quality of living to future residents.
