About James House Development

James House is the new next thing from Urban Capital and the Taggart Group. Partners in trend-setting, high-design condominiums since their first collaboration, the East Market, back in 2001. With only 127 new-loft style units, this boutique-sized development takes urban condominium living in Ottawa to the next level. With suites that newly push the envelope in terms of interior design and feel beautiful yet functional amenities and a very handsome street presence.

Located one block north of UC and Taggart's three-phase Central development, amongst Ottawa's most popular condominium addresses. It designed by Toronto's architectural powerhouse, RAW Design, James House will set a new standard for urban living in Ottawa.


Flanked by a traditional Main Street dotted with a variety of commercial buildings and small and mid-sized shops, and surrounded by parks and tree-lined residential streets. James House reflects Urban Capital and the Taggart Group's philosophy of entering an area as a good neighbor. With scale in mind, and keeping the building in context, James House offers the streetscape a handsome building of modern yet timeless character. Its warm-hearted brick façade with a screen-like brick detail has fit, while its mid-rise height increases density without disruption.

Features and Amenities

In an acknowledgment of what matters most to today's urban dweller, James House offers amenity spaces that combine function with purpose and aesthetics with utility.


Tucked quietly down James Street, James House's lobby nevertheless makes a bold statement. A choreography of light, volume, residents, and visitors, and formed of blonde woods, cool tiles, and large expanses of glass, it is a distinguished entrance, making an elegant and contemporary statement that showcases the design-forward thinking that informs the rest of the building.

Because first impressions matter.


James House's amenity package starts with its shared lounge. Meant to be an extension of your living room, it is centered around a fireplace clad in hot rolled steel. All, of course, when the time comes that we can do that again.

Beyond the lounge is a linear zen-like garden, with a long brick screen to the lane behind, creating a play of light and plantings, perfect for a contemplative moment. Meant as a place of serenity, it could be your place of escape in a busy world.


For the active side of your life, James House provides a fully-equipped fitness facility and yoga/pilates studio, both opening up to the tranquil landscaped garden behind. Work out to your limit, then grab some fresh air and a little quiet time.


We stretched ourselves so you could too. So if lounging by a rooftop pool perched high above Centretown is your idea of a good time, then James House is for you. The building's heated salt-water pool, in striking mosaic tiles, is perfect for a refreshing morning swim or weekday evening lounge. Or why not plan a staycation around it. Regardless, this is the place to stretch out, relax and rejuvenate.
