Ranging from buildings we own or manage to the restoration projects we've worked on over the years, Andrex has a strong portfolio of prominant buildings located in Ottawa, Ontario and Macon, Georgia.
Andrex proudly offers fine rental accommodations in central Ottawa. Current rental availability is listed on our Find an apartment page.
404 Laurier Avenue East • Sandy Hill
Built in 1927 to be Ottawa's finest address, The Strathcona boasts underground parking and a choice location in Sandy Hill. With its massive columns and elegant pediment, it is a landmark in this highly desirable area. Amongst its prominent former residents are John Diefenbaker (in the right wing) and Tommy Douglas (appropriately in the left wing).
150 Argyle Avenue • Centretown
Located on the main axis of Parliament and next to the Canadian Museum of Nature, The Windsor Arms was erected in 1929 to be Ottawa's premier address with every imaginable modern convenience. Designed in the Art Deco Stripped Classicism style by architect Cecil Burgess, it features large apartments with leaded glass windows, high ceilings, and wood burning fireplaces in select units.
309 & 311 Daly Avenue • Sandy Hill
This stately limestone building was erected in 1865 and was considered to be one of Sandy Hill's finest estates. It was once home to Sir Sandford Fleming, the inventor of uniform standard time zones. After the departure of the Flemings, Winterholme was converted to apartments in the 1920s with the entrance moved to the south side of the edifice.
Val-des-Monts, QC ( 45 minutes north of Ottawa ON )
Perched in the trees above a fresh water lake, our Grand Lake cottage is periodically available for rent by the week. This log home was built of hand-hewn square timbers in the 1840s, has two bedrooms, fireplace & woodstoves, as well as a deck and screened porch that overlook the pristine water. Also includes lake access and a dock.
Andrex's intervention has saved several buildings from demolition, while at the same time adapting or renewing their functions to ensure viability well into the future.
While typically specializing in historical renovations, Andrex has redeveloped more contemporary buildings, in addition to providing property management services.
Andrex acted as developer and project manager in the redevelopment of this property. We now continue as property manager for this 60,000 square foot building, which houses offices of the Canada Border Services Agency.
