World Exchange Plaza is a triple “A” office complex, prominently located in Ottawa’s downtown financial core, just steps from Parliament Hill. Encompassing an entire city block, the complex measures over 670,000 square feet and is comprised of two office towers, a three-level retail concourse (which connects the two towers), an underground parkade for 1,100 vehicles, and an outdoor amphitheatre for informal gatherings. read more »

World Exchange Plaza is a pivotal address for the “Who’s Who” of industry and visitors to our Nation’s Capital. WEP has been designated a BOMA Best Level 3, BOMA 360 and LEED Gold EBOM in recognition of its environmental best practices.

Access to and from the project is fast and efficient, as it is situated within the hub of the city’s transit system (Routes 95 and 97), Highway 50 and 417 (the Queensway), easy access to “Parliament Station” along Ottawa’s future LRT “Confederation Line” (opening 2018) as well as the Ottawa River and Airport Parkways.
