In its April 2007 number, enRoute magazine named Hintonburg one of the top ten emerging neighbourhoods in Canada. The same month, Ottawa Magazine said Hintonburg is "hot" and credits our QUAD arts district as the reason residents think we're "cool". Then in June 2007, the Financial Times of London noted that the 'Burg is "thriving again" and the Ottawa Citizen, in a March 2008 editorial, declared "The changing nature of the neighbourhood is fascinating to watch... There is a hip, urban edge." So come explore the living or arts or business opportunities in Hintonburg -- you're sure to get a warm welcome.
