About Us

With over 30 years in the housing industry, we have learned not just to appreciate the difference that quality makes, but to insist upon it.

Trusted for over 30 Years!

Longwood has been building new communities for over 30 years in the Ottawa region. Over the years, Longwood has built more than 1250 single homes, adult lifestyle bungalow communities and condominiums for growing families and people who are downsizing.

As founder of Longwood, Guy Whissel, who was born and raised in Ottawa, knew at a young age that he wanted to change the city landscape. He studied in Architecture and learned the ropes with the biggest home building company in the city back in the late 70’s. He worked with other builders for a few years until he was ready to go on his own. Longwood started small but quickly gained a share of the market building 75 to 100 new homes per year. Longwood often teams up with other builders to buy land and develop entire communities.

Quality Comes First

Quality is not just a word at Longwood Building Corporation, it’s a way of thinking. Our designs are carefully planned and drawn to meet the needs of all lifestyles. At Longwood, we are always working together as a team to improve the designs and quality of our homes.
