Neighbourhood Spotlight - Lynwood by Edstan

Bell's Corners has many great examples of MCM design in Lynwood Village and Arbeatha Park - both of which were built by Teron. But, there is one pocket of houses that was actually constructed by another builder. In the triangle bounded by Robertson, Richmond and Moodie, is an area of houses by the builder Edstan.

Edstan built houses during the 1960s and 1970s in parts of Riverside Park, Hawthorne Meadows, and Sheahan Estates. According to the Ottawa Citizen archives, the builder went into receivership in 1977.

Below I present the 1968 floor plans for Lynwood by Edstan:


  1. Thanks Saul.
    The backsplits are kind of a weird floorplan....

  2. Very interesting.
