Briarcliffe Heritage District Designation
Five students of the Heritage Conservation stream – Lashia Jones, Niki McKernan, Katherine Charbonneau, Kristina Leaning and Natalie Whidden – authored a Preliminary District Study for Briarcliffe, a small neighborhood in Ottawa’s east end representing intact 1960s Modernist architecture last winter. The study was completed for the city of Ottawa in an effort to put the neighbourhood on a path to Heritage District Designation. If Briarcliffe is designated, it will represent the first district designation from this period in Canada. Read more here.
