New Barrhaven apartment development opens opportunities for homeowners


After spending years building up equity in their home, Ottawa residents have a new opportunity to unlock the pent-up value of their property and capitalize on the city’s hot real estate market.

At Lépine Corporation’s new Howard Grant Terrace development in Barrhaven, residents enjoy a lifestyle that many previously thought was out of reach.

Described as “resort-style living,” the rental community is the latest in a string of Lépine development projects offering luxurious, comfortable and sustainable living options. 

Featuring spacious apartments, an on-site pool and fitness centre, as well as outdoor BBQ and lounge areas, the development is the perfect place for families, retirees and work-from-home professionals. 

“Lépine is reimagining apartment living by creating bright and airy living spaces,” says community and land development coordinator Pascale Lépine. “There is a home for everyone at Howard Grant.”

A new luxury lifestyle

For many residents, choosing to “right-size” to an apartment can be a big decision. 

The first step is typically to speak to a trusted realtor who can help you understand the true sale value of your current home. From there, a real estate agent can assist you in the process of obtaining the maximum value by staging your home and properly coordinating the timing of the final closing transaction date.

“Anxious to maintain the comfort and standard of living they’ve come to enjoy over decades, individuals and couples continue to want roomy, well-built and well-equipped apartments in buildings that offer good neighbours and a range of amenities,” says company president Francis Lépine.

Units at the Howard Grant Terrace are designed with an open-concept flow and nine-foot-plus high ceilings. They also feature panoramic windows, adding to the expansive feel of the space.

The large eat-in kitchens with granite countertops and hardwood floors rival those of a family-style home and showcase Lépine’s dedication to using quality building materials. The eco-friendly fixtures and materials extend into the unit’s bathroom, which also includes in-suite laundry. 


Greater freedom, flexibility

The move from a family-style home to a luxury apartment can save residents money in the long run. 

Removing the need for repair costs, landscaping and a mortgage payments and taxes, apartment living gives tenants the freedom to come and go as they please, without worrying about property upkeep. And with Ottawa’s hot housing market, residents typically stand to profit from the sale of their home. 

“Most residents were previously living in a house that they loved, but they chose to move because they didn’t want to be tied down by a property,” says leasing agent Stacie Wilson. “It could be as simple as wanting to travel more or not wanting to deal with the snow and the grass.”

Lépine’s Howard Grant Terrace development is located minutes away from the community’s main shopping district and is a short drive to Chapman Mills. 

With nearby access to public transit, local community centres and eateries, the Terrace in Barrhaven is the perfect place for your next home.
