“I love walkable cities with a sense of history. I want my kids to feel grounded in a place and connected to their neighbours, that was the inspiration for adapting allsaints and launching Working Title Kitchen.”
Over the last decade, Leanne has led community movements to save a neighbourhood daycare and transform allsaints into a community hub with a bakery, restaurant and event space.
Passionate about urban development, Leanne has mobilized community stakeholders to purchase and re-purpose two historic buildings in Ottawa, collectively worth over $5 million. Leanne led the re-purposing and successful re-zoning of the allsaints property that will allow the heritage building to be restored and maintained for generations to enjoy. In 2017, Leanne was named by Ottawa Life Magazine as one of the top 25 people in Ottawa.
