The Slater Further Ignites Expanding Ottawa Condo Market

October 4, 2012 - Ottawa

The Financial Post reports that Canada's condominium market is growing rapidly -- and that the future holds even more demand for condo living. Fueled by many factors, this surge in condominium demand has sparked an influx of new high rises in downtown Ottawa. One of these new buildings, The Slater, is scheduled to open this fall. The epitome of luxury, The Slater is a unique building that offers both condo and hotel suites. With Marnie Bennett, the premier condominium sales professional in the city, at the helm, the units within this new building are expected to sell quickly.

With an increasing number of residents moving into the urban center of Ottawa, condominiums offer the privacy and luxury that homeowners want without requiring them to sacrifice the ideal location. Bennett asserts that The Slater was designed to provide residents with a luxurious lifestyle while allowing them to live closer to both their places of work and the cultural and retail offerings of the city.

"The Slater really is the epitome of downtown condo living," states Bennett. "The building itself is beautifully done, and the floorplans will provide condo owners exactly what they are looking for. But most importantly, the amenities of the building and the surrounding area will allow residents to enjoy the high-end lifestyle that they expect when purchasing a downtown condo."

At 22 stories tall, The Slater offers 164 units and 150 hotel suites. A sleek black and white structure with a bold grid overlay, the exterior of the building encompasses sophistication and elegance -- with a contemporary twist. "Inspired by the clean, square lines of mid-century modernism, it marries a hip 1950s aesthetic with a thoroughly modern sensibility," explains The Slater's website. Located on Slater Street, the building is central to restaurants, entertainment venues, retail destinations, and more.

Bennett is excited to be involved in this project, as she understands exactly how valuable luxury condominiums are on Ottawa's current market. With an influx of residents looking to relocate to the city, but not wanting to give up the amenities and comfort of the suburbs, many prospective buyers are seeking the privacy, sophistication, and lifestyle that The Slater has to offer. She notes that The Slater has a record-breaking 1,000 interested buyers pre-registered for the building's opening.


The Slater is a premier Ottawa high rise that offers both condominium and hotel suites. Developed by Broccolini Construction, Richard Chmiel Architects & Associates, and II by IV Interiors, The Slater's condominium sales have been entrusted to the expertise of Marnie Bennett. A leading real estate broker in Ottawa and founder of Bennett Property Shop Realty, Bennett has extensive experience in condominium sales. Her industry knowledge and insight into the Ottawa market will benefit the project immensely.

The Slater is scheduled to open in the fall of 2012. For more information, visit, call (613) 230-0199, or email To register to receive details regarding The Slater, Ottawa's premier condominium residence, visit
