Where In Ottawa XLIV

It's not just the Super Bowl that uses Roman numerals.

Last month's Where In Ottawa was solved so quickly that I hadn't even grabbed a coffee after posting it from the office. This month, I hope the challenge goes a little longer.

If you haven't played this challenge before—or even if you have but you've forgotten the rules—here are the conditions of play.

  • The following photograph was taken somewhere in the greater Ottawa region. Your job: locate it.
  • If you think you know the location of the structure in the image, leave your guess in the Comments section of this post. Answers sent to me by Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, or any other method than by writing a guess in the Comments section do not qualify for this challenge. I will not reply to any other form of guess.
  • If you were with me when I took the photo, you may not participate in the challenge.
  • If you have won Where In Ottawa in the past, you may still participate; however, if you guess correctly, no giveaway will be awarded.
  • The first person to correctly identify the location of the structure in the photograph will receive a PDF copy of my novel, Songsaengnim: A Korea Diary.
  • You may leave as many guesses as you want.
  • Starting tomorrow, I will leave clues to the location in the upper-right column of this post, adding a new clue each day until the challenge is solved.
  • If the challenge has not been solved by noon, Ottawa time, on Sunday, February 8, the challenge will end and I will reveal the location on Tuesday, February 10.
  • The winner of Where In Ottawa has until the end of Sunday, March 1, to claim his or her giveaway.
That's basically it. So are you ready? Here is this month's photo:

Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!

And good luck! 

Update: Where In Ottawa has been solved. Congratulations to my friend, John Scott. I'll reveal the location tomorrow.

    1. Yes!

      I was pretty sure that anyone who lives in Barrhaven would get this one: I just didn't think it would happen this quickly.

      Congratulations, John.
