Welcome to Wateridge Village, a sustainable new community minutes from downtown overlooking the Ottawa River. Celebrating both the legacy of the former Rockcliffe Lands and the brilliance of modern urban design. Visionary and masterful in scope, Wateridge Village will be home to design-forward residences, retail and office space, unparalleled neighbourhood, beautiful parks, trails and so much more.
We make buying a Claridge home a wonderful experience because our entire staff is dedicated to making sure you get the home that’s right for your family. We also understand what’s important to you. Our homes come in an array of options, including detached single homes, semi-detached homes, and townhomes with quality at the forefront of every design. You’ll get the same award-winning craftsmanship you’ve come to know with every Claridge home, with the addition of premium upgrades that are exclusive only to Wateridge Village.
Archaeological information suggests that the Algonquin people have inhabited this region of the Ottawa Valley more than 8000 years ago. That’s why the 2010 Algonquins of Ontario—Canada Lands Company Participation Agreement provides a framework for an ongoing relationship and the realization of mutual benefits as the Wateridge Village at Rockcliffe site is developed.
ELEMENTARY, SECONDARY & POST-SECONDARY SCHOOLS
An idyllic location near a host of great schools is a must. That’s why Wateridge Village will be home to brand new elementary and high schools. Just minutes away, find a wide choice of additional well-established French and English, public and private elementary and secondary schools. Not only that, post-secondary options including Carleton and University of Ottawa are easily accessible, thanks to the transit network close by.
THAT SURROUND YOU.
With Beechwood a short distance away, you can enjoy all the amenities and beauty that New Edinburgh has to offer. Here you will find shopping, dining, grocers, parks, schools, culture, and entertainment. Looking for a night on the town? ByWard Market offers you exciting nightlife, brimming with clubs, lounges, pubs and restaurants.
WHERE THE LAND MEETS THE RIVER, THERE’S A WONDROUS SENSE OF CALM. Walk, jog or hike the tranquil trails that meander by the Ottawa River and natural wildlife areas. Take to two wheels on the bike paths, and hit the links at Pine View Golf Course. Tap into the pluses of a riverside location and fish, paddle board, or grab a kayak or canoe. Come winter, strap on cross country skis, snowshoes or skates and explore a winter wonderland. When you live here, a veritable year-round playground surrounds you.
From here, go anywhere. With the downtown core a quick five minute drive away, and easy access to Highway 417 and OC Transpo stops, getting across town is a breeze. Prefer to stay close to home? The entire Wateridge Village community is designed to be easily accessible with modern and urban pedestrian friendly streetscaping so you can get where you need to go in your own community with ease.
