  • UrbSanity: Streetside spots—new tactics for public space - Spacing Ottawa
    other cities such as Montreal s rue St Denis Toronto s Church Street or Vancouver s pilot The city is accepting applications for the 25 spots to be made available as part of the 2016 summer pilot to run from April 1 to October 31 Parklets are playful and energetic destination spaces They are quickly becoming one of the next big trend and must have for cities and look great in promotional city material As the city s Streetside Spot Standards document explain The primary purpose of streetside spots is to contribute to a vibrant and liveable community while sharing the right of way space with pedestrians of all abilities cyclists and drivers As one of the designers for Impromptu Playground s Pause and Play Park ing Day parklet back in 2011 I am excited to see the city taking action I do however want to offer some words of caution and I hope productive criticism to be considered as the city transforms the unsanctioned parklet movement into a policy for streetside spots As images of parklets float around social media and are shared in talks and petitions to the city it is easy to get caught up in the playfulness of the form these parklets take from temporarily re purposing on street parking A lot of the images we now see of city sanctioned streetside spots end up looking a lot like the citizen designed parklets they are responding to Without power to redesign the street the artists and community groups that started the parklet movement are restricted to the 2 75 7 25m of a standard parking spot Often paying for the material out of their own pocket as we did at Impromptu Playground the choice of material is usually pretty modest but finds creative ways to make the most of standard components and a lot of paint The idea that you can do a lot with a little is a good lesson for cities but I don t think the main criticism of Park ing Day is the use of public funds At its core Park ing Day wants to challenge the use of public land and the accessibility to quality public spaces When cities intervene they should be making bigger impact Especially in the urban core space is at a premium and while cities are trying to find ways to cram in greenspace they are ignoring a huge available resource they already own The problem is that they lease it out for private use to park cars Ottawa s pilot program divides permits into three categories streetside parklets for public use streetside patios for private use by patrons of adjacent businesses and streetside vending stalls for private retail sales While the city has reserved 5 spots for public parklets because of their higher contribution to the public realm that leaves up to 20 spots for commercial use Private use is still being given a significant priority Thriving mainstreets filled with local businesses are a great contribution

  • Neighbourhood Walk: Walkin’ Down Main - Spacing Ottawa
    the new church had been laid The architects were my favourite of all active mid century firms Abra Balharrie and Shore Le Marquis Ala Kantti s love song to concrete on Main Image November 2014 Constructed in 1970 Le Marquis apartment was born during the latter part of the postwar apartment construction boom The somewhat unremarkable 11 storey concrete structure was the project of Montreal area developer Hy Adessky operating as Centre Town Developments Ltd and as with so many vertical homes of engineered concrete it was designed by the firm of Ala Kantti Liff and Stefaniszyn Adessky s other Ottawa properties included the nearby Elgin Square and the River Park Terrace in the west end among others Le Marquis spent a considerable amount of time in the news during the 1980s when it was part of Reddy Chavali s highly controversial tumultuous and ultimately short lived rental empire Today things have quieted considerably and the apartment is an affordable home to many Dixie Dairy Whistlin for nearly fifty years Image November 2014 It may have been the beginning of a convenience store empire After the demise of a few short lived businesses at the location including the Rosedale Furniture Salon a would be competitor to the GEM Store on Merivale the Dixie Dairy opened for business in 1966 Looking to aggressively expand advertisements were run in the Journal and Citizen suggesting that for 950 and an undefined pool of operating capital qualified individuals could run their own Dixie Dairy The goal was to see at least 40 operate in the region and the promise was to net up to 10 000 even 15 000 per year Interested and above all sincere individuals were urged to visit this location and see what the hype was all about Suffice to say the ambitious goal was not reached At its peak there appear to have been two locations Aside from the headquarters on Main there was one on Poulin at Britannia The locations advertised at 301 and 751 Bank Street do not appear to have ever materialized with one serving as a cuckoo clock shop and the other a music school By 1975 the location on Poulin had fallen to the Loeb juggernaut and became a Pinto While the world of convenience stores was not swept up in Dixie Dairy storm Ottawa East has been well served by its presence for nearly 50 years Alpha Foods 7 Days a Week now Green Door seating Image Fall 2013 Although you won t see it today the Alpha Food Store was a veritable institution It was located at the corner of Main and Hazel for more than 30 years Around 1980 it took over this storefront at 196 Main which had perhaps most famously been the location of the Nelson Drug Store The Nelson was one of the original occupants of the small commercial block which was constructed by G F Smiley in 1948 The Nelson merged with Island Park Pharmacy located at 1333
