Place de Ville is a complex of office towers in downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It consists of four office buildings: Place de Ville A, B, and C; and the 'Podium' building, which houses a shuttered "piggy-back" cinema enveloped with functional office space. The complex also has two large hotels, the Delta Ottawa City Centre (410 rooms) and Ottawa Marriott Hotel (487 rooms). The buildings are linked by an underground shopping complex. Place de Ville C is the tallest building in Ottawa. It was once advertised as "Ottawa's glittering answer to the Toronto Dominion Centre and Place Ville Marie".
Since September 14, 2019, the complex is directly linked to Lyon Station of the Confederation Line which is situated underground between the two phases of Place de Ville. One entrance is integrated into the south façade of the Podium building, while a second entrance can be found within the underground shopping concourse.
The complex boasts the city's largest underground parking garage with space for 974 cars.
Place de Ville is now managed by Brookfield Properties. Plans have been filed with the City of Ottawa to replace the 4 storey 'Podium' building with a 19 floor office tower. A two storey link would connect tower C with this new building and include wider, brighter escalators to the underground concourse.
Brookfield also owns a large surface parking lot taking up half a block across Kent Street from Place de Ville phase I that could see construction of over half a million square feet of office space. The parking lot will be partially closed during the construction of the Confederation Line to allow the builders to use the lot as a staging area and a central point from which to dig the downtown subway portion of the system.
