UPDATED: Ben Franklin Place closed Tuesday; to reopen Wednesday

A water leak has closed Ben Franklin Place in Ottawa’s west-end.

The city of Ottawa tweeted Tuesday morning that “there is a significant water leak at Ben Franklin Place. The building is closed until further notice.”

Later Tuesday afternoon, the City issued a statement saying doors would reopen Wednesday, with services operating during regular business hours.

Ben Franklin Place on Centrepointe Drive houses the Centrepointe Branch of the Ottawa Public Library, the Centrepointe Theatre, city of Ottawa offices and bylaw offices.

The building had been closed on New Year’s Day.
