Parliamentary Precinct Redevelopment – Block 2 in Ottawa, Canada

Architectural design competition in two stages


The Government of Canada ( Canada ) is intending to redevelop a building complex referred to as “Block 2” of the Parliamentary Precinct in Canada’s Capital city of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The Block 2 site is the city block in front of the Centre Block and Peace Tower, Canada’s main parliament building. Block 2 is in the foreground of Parliament Hill, a world-renowned ensemble of unique neo-gothic buildings, and establishes the threshold between “Town and Crown”. The site is bounded by Metcalfe Street to the east, O’Connor Street to the west, Wellington Street to the north and Sparks Street to the south.

The winning architectural design solution is expected to contribute to the overall redevelopment of the “South of Wellington” portion of the Parliamentary campus, and positively contribute to the objectives established in the Long-Term Vision and Plan ( LTVP ) for the Parliamentary Precinct. The LTVP is an evolving planning framework established since 2001 in cooperation between the Science and Parliamentary Infrastructure Branch of Public Services and Procurement Canada, the Senate of Canada, the House of Commons of Canada, the Library of Parliament, the National Capital Commission ( NCC ), and the City of Ottawa.

Competition Site

Competition site within the city context

The Block 2 site has an approximate area of 9,800 sqm and currently consists today of eleven buildings. Canada’s Federal Heritage Bureau Review Office has designated some buildings as Recognized or Classified, as defined in “The Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada”. The current condition of many Block 2 buildings is not appropriate given their central location, with many having gone beyond or reaching the end of their life cycle. Five of the eleven buildings are underutilized, and most buildings are known to require major renovations. Only two buildings are in good condition, having recently undergone major renovation. The existing ensemble can be described as diverse and architecturally heterogeneous.


The goal of the competition is to provide a cohesive design solution and to redevelop the site into an efficient complex of buildings. The new and renovated facilities will provide accommodations for the Senate of Canada and the House of Commons, with branch space for the Library of Parliament, as well as some retail presence on the historically-significant Sparks Street Mall. The total approximate gross area above ground for the redevelopment ( i.e. not including any area developed underground ) is estimated at approx. 30,000 sqm. The redevelopment is to create a new integrated building complex, which would include the appropriate rehabilitation and modernization of aging and underutilized buildings, maximize the site developable capacity and enable the ongoing rehabilitation of core buildings on Parliament Hill. Equally important, the winning design solution must be innovative, creative and complement the exceptional “genius loci” of the site and place. The winning design solution is expected to be of the highest calibre and complement the image of Canada and its Capital on the world stage.

A new Indigenous Peoples’ place

An important design challenge for the project are the buildings at 100 Wellington Street and 119 Sparks Street, two significant heritage properties which bisect the site. 100 Wellington, built in 1932, is the former embassy for the United States of America, built as the first foreign embassy in Canada’s capital city. 119 Sparks, built in 1922, was the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce’s main branch in Ottawa.

Approximately a century later, in June 2017, in its commitment to advancing reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples, the Government of Canada announced that 100 Wellington would be transformed into a space for Indigenous Peoples. This commitment significantly influences how to redevelop Block 2.

While the Government’s commitment to the Indigenous Peoples’ Space currently stands independently from the scope of this competition, PSPC will seek to work in close partnership with Indigenous stakeholders on design and redevelopment in Block 2.
