10 Hamilton Avenue N, Ottawa
Since 2014, we have owned the property at 10 Hamilton Ave. North in the heart of Ottawa's popular Hintonburg neighbourhood. For six years it served as the home of the Ottawa Triathlon Club before being reconfigured in the fall of 2020. The mixed use (commercial/residential) building features an 850 sq ft two story apartment with loft, along with a 300 sq ft commercial space. The commercial space is shared by a chiropractor and fitness business.
As soon as the real estate papers were signed in June of 2014 we started an intensive renovation of what had been, for 30 years previous, a triplex. New everything is the easiest way to say it but highlighting the 'new' list would be interior walls and ceilings, insulation, flooring, electrical, HVAC, joists, and plumbing. The flooring is a highlight as we chose pine floors made from timbers reclaimed from the bottom of the Ottawa River. Here is a slide show of the project that shows the progress from start to finish.
It was in the fall of 2020 that the space was converted into its current form. This job included the addition of a wall dividing the main floor, a full kitchen including granite counter tops and all new appliances, a shower, and all of the fireproofing required by building code. Here is the finished product.
