Window-2Like most urban centres, Ottawa is going through a transformation. The old wooden house is flush against a modern apartment unit.

  1. Wow, that’s really something. Is the old house still used as a single family home or any kind of dwelling, for that matter? This is a pretty common sight in Seattle which has experienced unprecedented population growth and urban in-fill the past ten years but it’s a little more surprising to see it certain other places, like Ottawa.

  5. Yes, what are we losing? It’s not something that’s given much thought these days.
