Centretown is in the heart of Ottawa’s capital. It is marked by a mix of residential and commercial properties. The main streets such as Bank Street and Elgin Street are largely commercial, with diverse restaurants, specialty food stores and unique shops, while the smaller streets are more residential. Much of the area still consists of original single family homes, but there are newer infill and townhouse developments and low-rise and high-rise apartment buildings. A construction boom that began in the late nineties significantly increased the number of condominiums and other residential and commercial high-rises. Landmarks include the Canadian Museum of Nature, Dundonald Park, Jack Purcell Park, the Ottawa Curling Club, the Sens Mile and the Ottawa Central Bus Station.
