Here's how city councillors voted on Lansdowne 2.0

Ottawa City Hall

Ottawa city council has voted 17 to 7 in favour of a plan to proceed with the next phase of the revitalization of Lansdowne Park.

The $332 million plan known as "Lansdowne 2.0" would be funded from the sale of air rights, debt funding and some capital budget funding for internal costs. The city would borrow $239 million for the project. It would demolish and rebuild the north side stands at TD Place Stadium, demolish and rebuild the Civic Centre, and build three high-rise towers with a total of 1,200 units between them.

The vote Wednesday does not sign any contracts or bind the next term of council, but gives authority to keep staff working on the project and to conduct public consultations on the file.
