A building of national historic significance, allsaints represents the dedication and investment of congregations for over a century. Listed for sale by the Anglican Diocese in August 2014, local residents came together to influence the re-purposing of the Church. Eventually a few of these residents entered a business partnership with Alberta-based developers. Together they are shaping a vision for allsaints that recognizes the beauty and heritage value of the building while re-creating the church as a diverse and inclusive urban space.

RSC is situated on the land of the former Rideau Tennis Club which has been an Ottawa landmark since 1912. Its historic role in the recreational and social life of the National Capital is legendary.
