275 Slater

A revitalized office building in Ottawa’s central business district.

About the building

275 Slater is a 20-story office building located in the heart of Ottawa’s central business district. The building, which was originally built in 1968, required significant capital expenditure and operational improvements, creating opportunities to enhance its sustainability performance and overall value for the LaSalle Canada Property Fund.

Investment rationale

275 Slater is located in the heart of the central business district in Canada’s capital and fourth-largest city. It benefits not only from its proximity to transport links and access to amenities, but also from a diverse tenant base that includes foreign embassies, industry advocacy groups, professional services firms, and ground-floor food and retail. Occupancy rate has historically been in the 85%-90% range, demonstrating the asset’s utility in the market and desirability for tenants wanting a highly efficient CBD location.

The LaSalle Canada Property Fund’s management team believes that the high occupancy and rent rates at 275 Slater result in large part from delivering sustainability performance that meets the expectations of top tenants in the market.

Improvement works

LaSalle’s Canadian Asset Management team designed a multi-year capital improvement strategy, focused on making the asset more sustainable and energy efficient.

Their focus areas were:


275 Slater has achieved ENERGY STAR certifications annually since 2020, with a recent score of 77, placing it in the top 25% of comparable buildings across Canada. Additionally, it has obtained LEED Platinum certification, the highest level of recognition.
