There are fewer things more frustrating than FOMO—fear of missing out—and nothing causes more FOMO than living outside the action, especially when most of it takes place downtown. When your car is your only means of transportation to and from said downtown events, your potential to miss out becomes compounded by a lack of options. Should you leave your car at home and shell out for a taxi? Risk missing your connection using public transit? Draw straws to decide who gets tasked with being the designated driver? These are exactly the type of questions thousands of people are currently asking during the height of festival season in the National Capital Region.
But soon enough, Zibi residents will be in the enviable position of living right in the epicentre of all the action. Close enough to hear the Red Hot Chili Peppers headline the main stage at neighbouring RBC Bluesfest from your balcony, or walk home after attending it in person. You’ll also be perfectly located to get a front row seat to the Canada Day and Lac-Leamy Casino fireworks, and just a hop skip and a jump from the Brew Fest at the Canadian Museum of History for both their winter and summer editions.
The implementation of Phase 1 of the new Ottawa Light-Rail Train (LRT) system means you’ll be well connected to the downtown core, all the way from Tunney’s Pasture to Gloucester. Jump on at nearby Pimisi station and get off at Parliament station to take in the Northern Lights show on Parliament Hill throughout the summer. And you’ll be close enough to almost skate home from the Rideau Canal in the winter. Regardless of your activity of choice, know that living at Zibi will relieve you of your FOMO and guarantee you a place right in the center of the action.
