Golden Triangle

Golden Triangle is the name for the property triangle in Ottawa, Canada between Elgin Street and the Rideau Canal that is part of the Centretown neighbourhood. The area is bordered by Ottawa City Hall to the north and to the south by the Elgin street Police station. It is dominated by large single family homes (many have been subdivided), with a number of condominiums and small apartment buildings. The area is very sought after by home buyers who love the area’s amenities, proximity to neighbouring areas of the city, and the eclectic mix of traditional and modern homes, some so daring that they have sparked controversy in the neighbourhood.

Its main western thoroughfare Elgin Street, is home to boutiques and galleries, while surrounded by eating establishments, cafes, bars and nightclubs. Its eastern thoroughfare Queen Elizabeth Driveway runs along the western edge of the Rideau Canal. Along the entire length of Queen Elizabeth Driveway is a multi-use trail that is part of the Capital Pathway system. A series of explosions in the sewers caused property damage throughout the area on May 29, 1929.
