Situated high above the canal in the heart of Old Ottawa South, the Canal Homes on Colonel By represent three of Ottawa's most unique and architecturally significant residential properties. Designed by award winning architect Barry J. Hobin, these homes push the limits of residential design and construction; with each home featuring private elevators, rooftop terraces and expansive windows capturing the stunning vistas of the Rideau Canal and city skyline.

Although conceived as one, each home is completely unique in terms of lot size, architectural design and materiality. The modern lines of the homes' facades are softened through the use of natural stone and wood accents which are contrasted against contemporary materials, including brick and metal. The overall effect being that of three contemporary dwellings that fit respectfully into the surroundings of a mature and established neighbourhood.
