Monocle Westboro: Master planned for elevated living in Ottawa

Choo Communities’ new condominium Monocle Westboro offers an exclusive opportunity to live amidst lush greenery in Q West, Ottawa’s premier master-planned neighbourhood.

Situated between Richmond Road and Byron Avenue, Monocle is surrounded by verdant gardens and tree-lined walking paths. Nature lovers will appreciate the fact that nearly 25 per cent of the Monocle property is outdoor space.

This luxurious oasis is also situated in an amenity-rich area. Everything today’s discerning homeowners need is steps away, including shopping, fine dining, parks and trails.


At just four storeys and encompassing only 62 suites, Monocle is intimate in scope, limitless in possibilities. The condominium is set back from the street, creating an environment that is as quiet as it is lovely.

This boutique building’s classically modern exterior by M. David Blakely Architect Inc. is fresh and timeless. Sleek lines, the extensive use of glass, and extra-deep balconies characterize its sophisticated design.

Central to the accompanying buildings in the Q West community is the original three-storey stone villa that dates back to 1865 and was occupied by the Sisters of the Visitation of Holy Mary. The villa is protected by a City of Ottawa heritage designation. The “Nun’s Walk” pathway meanders through the neighbourhood past this tribute to the property’s rich and storied past.


Monocle’s luxurious interiors by Drake + Khan Design include the large contemporary lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide spectacular views of the parkland setting outside. This space’s casual yet elegant vibe sets the tone for refined living, which continues throughout the building.

Understanding the discerning tastes of the purchasers at Monocle, visionary David Choo decided to offer hotel-like services that enable purchasers to customize their lifestyles. The executive concierge will provide a suite of exclusive à-la-carte services from Alavida Lifestyles, a brand owned and operated by Choo Communities. Services range from housekeeping and valet parking to chef-prepared dining, dog-walking, dry-cleaning, an owner absentee program and more.

“We anticipate our buyers will be people who are used to the finer things in life,” Choo says. “They want to be healthy, social and have peace of mind, and our program offers them this. It is truly a customizable lifestyle package.”


Monocle owners will also have access to Alavida’s onsite facilities, which include a pool and hot tub, sauna, steam room and fitness facilities, as well as numerous recreational programs. Monocle’s curated resident amenities also encompass a dining room, entertainment suite and spectacular 1,140-square-foot, west-facing, landscaped rooftop.

Those who wish to live graciously will appreciate the generous size of the meticulously appointed suites, which run from approximately 800 to just over 3,000 square feet. Choo Communities is open to customizing layouts as well to accommodate individual needs.

Moving from a large detached home to one of these generous layouts will feel like “home” without the hassle of exterior maintenance. Travel becomes worry free when you know your home and investment is being looked after for you.


All suites have 10-foot ceiling heights and a balcony, and the ground and first-floor walk-out suites feature terrace space.

The building has high-speed elevator access to all suites, with corner units having semi-private elevators. Superb features and finishes in all of the suites include best-in-class appliances.

It adds up to the good life … only better!
