Minto Metropole, Ottawa |

The Minto Metropole is a 33 story residential building in the Westboro neighbourhood of Ottawa, Ontario.[1] At 108m, it is the second tallest building in Ottawa; five metres shorter than Place de Ville Tower C.[2] It is the tallest residential building in the National Capital Region.

The Minto Metropole is located on the near western side of the city on Island Park Drive, overlooking the Ottawa River, and within walking distance of Westboro Station. Opened in 2004, the postmodern tower is home to 153 condominiums. Originally, Minto planned to build a series of shorter towers along the waterfront, but residents complained that such a project would completely obscure their view of the river. As a result, Minto proposed building a single tall but slim tower, and city council approved the necessary rezoning.
