Orme Hall was located on Wellington Street in Ottawa. One of its owner was the piano maker James Lawrence Orme who also had a shop on Sparks Street.

The Orme Hall was demolished in the late 1950 to make room for the expansion of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.

Yes of course it's a shame that an old building was demolished, but the new building that replaced it is just as good. A bigger space was needed so a bigger space was built in place of an older building. It is unfair and unjust to show the new building - which I actually prefer as a refreshing architectural style in Ottawa - whilst obviously in a state of renovation and rehabilitation and compare this to the old building. I will say this however, I wish those street lights weren't replaced and I wish the sidewalk were bigger.
