Baseline: New Brigil community offers the ideal environment to support healthy living

March 03, 2021


If you’ve ever dreamed about elevating your personal baseline, a solution is at hand. Brigil, a leading builder of luxury rental accommodations throughout the National Capital Region, is nearing completion of an elegant new tower intentionally designed to redefine the idea of home by encouraging residents to put themselves first. Baseline by Brigil offers a unique opportunity to help you focus on enjoying a healthy, active lifestyle in premium surroundings.


Located in the lovely Qualicum area of near-west Ottawa at 2940 Baseline Road, the first of three planned towers, will soon be ready to welcome new tenants. The 14 floor building is comprised of 162 modern, hotel-inspired apartments designed to simplify life for everyone from on-the-go professionals to active retirees. The universally-accessible building includes studios, 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom + den and 2 bedroom apartments as well as penthouse suites; among these are 46 barrier-free units. All residents will appreciate the high-end finishes, large contemporary kitchens and sizable balconies – available with almost every suite – offering spectacular views and private outdoor space for relaxation. All three towers are to be linked via an indoor passageway to make the amenities in each building available to all tenants. “Having a multi-tower community makes it possible to offer a greater array of premium facilities throughout the complex,” explains Gilles Desjardins, president and CEO of Brigil.



“The architectural details in this building blend together beautifully, forming a sophisticated design, focused on simplicity, that can shield inhabitants from the outside chaos of the modern world,” he adds. “It has been said that holistic wellness is the new height of luxury, and it is our fervent desire to help people live more balanced and fulfilling lives. By reducing some of life’s common stressors and promoting active living, we believe residents will be empowered to make choices which facilitate a true synchronicity between their mental, physical and emotional states.”


Two elevators make for easy access to Baseline’s over 11,000 square feet of common space which serve to extend your living area in a myriad of appealing ways. The penthouse level offers fantastic panoramic views which help physically manifest the notion of elevating your baseline. While feasting your eyes on a 360 degree skyline, you can also indulge in a relaxing session in the hot tub, or unwind via a daily ritual of lengths in the exterior, wheelchair-accessible swimming pool. Also on offer is a rooftop terrace with barbeque, game room with a pool table, a gym, bistro-style lounge and relaxation space with loungers. The second floor of the building is home to an outdoor terrace and greenspace with repositionable furniture, an outdoor yoga / meditation area, a reading nook and bird house-style library to promote book sharing among residents plus the first floor lobby boasts comfortable furniture and a fireplace.



Of course, good food is key to a healthy lifestyle.  The immediate area delivers loads of options for specialty ingredients and restaurant fare spanning many different cuisines. Shopping hubs such as Bayshore, the Pinecrest mall (home to Canada’s largest IKEA), College Square and the bustling Bells Corners commercial strip are all just a few kilometres away and there are four thriving microbreweries  nearby.


Another distinct advantage of living in Qualicum is its accessibility, with an abundance of bike paths and transit, not to mention having highways 416 and 417 just three minutes away, meaning easy connections to downtown, Kanata, Bells Corners and Nepean. Major employment centres that are proximate include the Queensway Carleton Hospital, the Department of National Defence (at the former Nortel campus), Kanata North (Canada’s largest high tech business park), Algonquin College and the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board plus Postmedia and the Ottawa Citizen.



Other features of note in the building include secure indoor parking, a convenient garbage chute, bike racks and storage lockers. Each apartment is equipped with a full appliance package (stainless steel refrigerator, stove and dishwasher plus in-suite washer and dryer) and top-quality fixtures, faucets, doors and mouldings. Other high-end finishes include undermount sinks, quartz countertops, ceramic backsplashes and glass showers. Included in your rent, you'll find ultra-fast, unlimited high-speed Internet access to stay connected or work from home, your apartment fees and your municipal taxes, which greatly simplifies your budget. Baseline supports those with a passion for an active and healthy lifestyle. The community features an abundance of outdoor activities with nearby greenspaces including Qualicum Park, Bruce Pit (off leash dog park), the Trend Arlington Tennis Club and Valleystream Park with its lively pickleball club. Close at hand are Ben Franklin Park with walking trails, outdoor playing fields and year-round inflated Superdome for ultimate frisbee, soccer, golf and more and the Barbara Ann Scott arena. On the Ottawa River, Britannia Beach, the Nepean Sailing Club and Andrew Haydon Park are a short drive or cycle away; also close by is Wesley Clover Park for activities including equestrian sports, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing as well as live entertainment.



Baseline is purposefully structured to facilitate socialization and the forging of meaningful connections between tenants to promote the development of a supportive community. The onsite common areas will make it easy to engage in an abundance of social activities and nearby you’ll find cinemas, libraries, art galleries and the world-class Meridian Theatres at Centrepointe for live musical and dramatic performances. For those who enjoy travel, there’s tremendous ease and comfort that comes from knowing you can just pack, lock your door and head out, without worrying about your home.


Baseline’s all-inclusive formula makes it easy to live a simple life, free of chores or repair bills. Peace of mind is enhanced through 24/7 video surveillance, a backup generator, firewalls and fire partitions, integrated sprinkler systems, secure entry and background checks for all tenants. A friendly community manager offers a reassuring presence and ensures the smooth running of operations. Common areas are cleaned and sanitized regularly, and each apartment has its own independent ventilation system to ensure impeccable air quality, limiting the risk of air or virus exchange between units. Wellness is easily supported thanks to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, less than 2 kilometres away, and an array of doctors, dentists, physiotherapists and pharmacies located in the immediate neighbourhood.



“For 35 years, Brigil has been committed to its mission of offering clients fresh approaches to living, tailored to their ever-changing needs. We are enormously proud that over twelve thousand people in the National Capital Region call our properties home,” says Mr. Desjardins. “We will continue to solicit input and feedback to allow us to innovate and improve the way people live together. In the case of Baseline, we can confirm it is particularly appealing to tenants who wish to enjoy a safe, simplified lifestyle in a modern, well-appointed building surrounded by plentiful recreational possibilities.”


Despite the pandemic, Brigil continues to help prospective residents discover its new community located at 2940 Baseline Road.
