One of the things that we do a little differently than other property rental companies in Ottawa is our commitment, whenever possible, to restoring gorgeous heritage buildings and structures.
Many of our rental units began their life as single family homes or institutional-type uses (like embassies). Some of our buildings even date as far back as the turn-of-the-century. So, not only do these structures have the character that many young professionals are seeking in a living space, but they are very conveniently located, with easy, walkable access to amenities and fun.
Since starting this business in 1996, our goal has been to procure these sorts of properties in Downtown Ottawa. Once they’re under the FPM banner, we work to modernize their interiors, while faithfully restoring the heritage details of the buildings back to their original glory.
Here are a few properties that are currently available throughout Downtown Ottawa that offer the heritage charm, in combination with updated, modernized living spaces, that make us the regions’ top property management company for boutique, upscale apartments.
328 Frank St.
This building is one of the gems of Downtown Ottawa, and it is immaculately maintained. Currently available is a charming one bedroom apartment, featuring refinished hardwood, a recently-renovated bathroom and custom kitchen. Maybe best of all, it’s located between Elgin St. and Bank St., making it convenient to get just about anything you’d need, within a short walk.
377 Stewart St.
Apartment 2 & Apartment 6
Located a short walk from the banks of the Rideau River, the excitement of Ottawa’s ByWard Market, this building is a stunner – dating to the turn of the century. It was once home to an embassy. This prestigious structure has been subdivided since then, but maintains all the beautiful features; as they say, they don’t build ‘em like they used to. Currently there is a 1 bedroom apartment and a 2 bedroom apartment available at 377 Stewart, each tastefully updated to appeal to modern young professional or student tastes… with features like hardwood floors and fireplaces!
407 Queen St.
A lovely structure that combines a heritage exterior with an updated interior. Located in a historic neighbourhood of downtown Ottawa, just a couple of blocks south of Parliament Hill, with easy access to the shops of Sparks St. and Bank St. As well, its location just north of Slater St. and Albert St. makes it amazingly easy to get across the city on OC Transpo. Currently available is a 2 bedroom apartment, with a large kitchen (including dishwasher); hardwood flooring throughout; gas fireplace; washer and dryer located in the unit; and many more great features that make this a highly functional, liveable space – 950 sq. ft. in all.
