The Chambers building in downtown Ottawa

Project Information

A previously restored heritage property, The Chambers is one of Ottawa’s most prestigious corporate settings. It combines a 14-storey office tower with three historically significant heritage buildings. The Bell Block, dating back to 1867, is the oldest building facing Confederation Square and now serves as The Chambers’ central rotunda and entrance.
