Canada-based design firm HOK Toronto has unveiled plans for a mixed-use development on the land surrounding Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa, Canada.
The proposal includes a 21-storey condominium tower, a row of townhouses and a 12-storey office building.
The 21-storey condominium tower will have a smaller footprint at ground level and will have a curved façade clad in opaque and transparent glass.
The existing church hall will be demolished and replaced with smaller townhouses, set back to allow a better view of the cathedral.
The cathedral will also get a new glass pavilion entrance.
Construction is expected to begin in late 2012, according to the Ottawa Citizen.
