Situated in the heart of Ottawa and overlooking the Rideau Canal, Lansdowne Park has recently undergone a massive, multi-year redevelopment. Retail, commercial and residential amenities have been added to the site, in addition to a newly built stadium which is home to Ottawa’s latest CFL team, the RedBlacks. The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) has transformed Lansdowne into a year-round destination for sporting events, concerts, and retail shopping. The new 24,000 seat South Stands stadium hosts NASL soccer teams in addition to its CFL functions, along with major concerts. The refurbished former Frank Clair Stadium (now the North Stands at TD Place) provides approximately 10,000 seats for the Ottawa 67’s, as well as additional event space. Food services components were scattered throughout the North and South Stands, and included 25 individual concessions, a primary commissary for food preparation, a secondary commissary, support and storage spaces, bar areas for stadium club members, and power/data services for 40+ portable food stands. Office components included fit-up and FFE coordination for OSEG staff, stadium support personnel, and sporting organization (CLF/NASL) staff, located throughout both Stands. In addition, an area of J-Block was fit-up to serve as the main Box Office for the entire complex. Retail components included two dedicated merchandise areas in the North and South Stands, in addition to providing necessary power/data services required for the addition of several portable merchandising stands. Other miscellaneous components included a new scoreboard system in the North Stands hockey arena, in addition to extensive audio/visual displays, data runs, and IT infrastructure throughout the facility.
