Discover the Clemow

The Clemow is a new rental community for Adults 50+ that understands and encourages your need for independence. It is conveniently located at the corner of Bronson Avenue and Carling Avenue in The Glebe, THE place to live in Ottawa, and one of the city’s most iconic neighbourhoods. Envisioned as an “all-inclusive” hotel-style concept, The Clemow is a residential oasis in complete harmony with its surroundings. Designed by RLA, the 16-storey elegant residential tower rises from a three-storey mixed-use podium. Its interplay of glass façade, bringing lightness and a maximum inflow of natural light, and its extensive visual connections to greenery with three spacious common use terraces, generate a deep feeling of well-being in both outdoor and indoor settings. At ground level, The Clemow provides excellent opportunities for social interaction with a lounge area, hobby room and street front retail spaces. The Clemow’s common and private areas exude comfort, elegance and a warm homely atmosphere. From the rich palette of colours, natural beauty of the marble, stone and wood floors, to the classy modern furniture selected for its distinctive and timeless qualities, the shared areas are an invitation to relax and socialize. State-of-the art amenities, sweeping views and life-enhancing services to residents provide an exceptional environment that values your freedom to do whatever you like, whenever you want, without making compromises: just choices!


Live a hassle-free lifestyle!

With more than 20,000 square feet of amenity space, you’re sure to find plenty of ways to enjoy the Clemow, whether you choose to go to our modern gym to stay fit or chill out with a glass of wine and a good book by the fireplace.


We have a gym with modern and easy-to-use equipment, so that everyone, no matter their fitness level, feels comfortable and gets a good workout. There are also free weights and cardio and multi-purpose machines.


There is also an adjacent Fitness Room where we will be hosting a variety of group classes from Yoga to Pilates, some free of charge for Clemow tenants. When not in use, this space is available to you for stretching or a workout.


We even thought of the little ones in your life. We created a Kids Space so grandkids visiting can have their own place to run and play freely. Kids are also welcome to use all our amenities, including our indoor pool. And as we are a rental community, there are no restrictions for sleepovers either!


Your furry friends also have their special place at the Clemow, with an outdoor dog walk area on the rooftop terrace and a Pet Station to help you keep them clean and feeling great! They can also socialize at the dog park in Lansdowne Park or go for scenic walks at Dow’s Lake and the Rideau Canal.


Our “spa-like area” has a salt water heated pool, bathed in natural light and steam and sauna facilities set in a zen décor that invites relaxation. Large comfortable changing rooms have lockers, showers and the usual amenities.


With our indoor golf simulator, you can practice your swing all year long, from the comfort of your home. But it’s even more fun with friends, so invite them to join you for a group tournament at the Clemow!


Our movie heater is fully equipped, with comfortable seats and a popcorn machine, so our cinephiles can truly enjoy their favorite movies, the latest blockbuster hits, sporting events and live concerts.


Our Activity Room comprises a cozy fireplace lounge area, a TV area, a library corner, a billiard table and a well-equipped kitchen counter if you want to host private events.


A room where you can retreat to enjoy your favourite hobbies, whether it is crafting, sewing, knitting or just to do your gift wrapping. And you can rent a locker to store all your material and equipment.


You do what matters the most to you. We take care of the rest.

Experience life as you see it

The Clemow is a place that brings out the zen side of you (read by the pool after your yoga class), the sporty side of you (the Glebe is a cyclist’s dream), or the dancer in you (hit the dance floor at our Happy Hours with a live music band).
