Rockliffe base

The former CFB Rockliffe is one of Ottawa's largest brownfields. Its location close to the centre of the city makes it a prime target for residential development. The land will however require some environmental clean-up before it can be fully developed.

Canada Lands Corporation was set to purchase the land and create an eco-district that would eventually house up to 15,000 people. The project had to be shelved in early 2007 because of a native land claim.

Here is the first of a series documenting what is left of the base.
