At one point mostly a junction between destinations, Bells Corners combines the commercial strip of a thoroughfare with clusters of family homes to create an interesting mix. It also contains one of the first examples of tract housing in Ottawa, Lynwood Village, which was built in the 1950s and ’60s by Bill Teron. The ongoing relocation of National Defence headquarters to the nearby former Nortel campus on Moodie Drive has already sparked renewed interest in the area, which is starting to see a revival in business development and talks of residential development.
