Just my opinion, as I am wondering about the same thing.

It's probably because

1- Richcraft, Urbandale, HNHomes are building in the area, and they are considered higher quality than Minto, Mattamy, Phoenix, etc. More standard features like quartz in kitchen/bathroom, hardwood, etc.

2- Land in Barrhaven seems to be full. Hence why Minto, Tamarack are building further south (closer to Manotick) in The Meadows, Quinn's Pointe. Riverside South offers a better location than those 2 communities.

Anybody have other insight? Intrigue as well

That's an existing park-and-ride. There's a new one at the corner of EA/Limebank.

Another contributing factor might be the special development charge specific to the area to pay for the upcoming LRT.

LRT is one big factor. The bigger factor though is a change in demographics. You can see it when you walk/drive around. A lot of people moving to Ottawa coming from places where real estate is more expensive. Last census was 2016 and I believe the trend really started picking up in the past few years, so won't be reflected until the 2020 census.

Average household incomes are better in Ottawa than most of the GTA. Yet real estate still costs more (significantly so) in the GTA.

Plus I think we are starting to see growth in Ottawa of households who have no real Canadian sourced income, yet have the wealth to buy high end cars & houses. CMHC, CREA & other orgs stick their heads in the sand and say its not happening (or there is no way to track), but walking around many parts of the GTA over the past decade and you can see the dramatic influence this population has. In Ottawa the early signs are there, prices on new build real estate is one thing.. but take a look at all the high end car dealerships that are being build or majorly updated along Hunt Club.

The one at EA & Limebank has been eliminated. OC Transpo say they no longer need it - the one at Bowesville & EA will be sufficient. They presented updates to the CDP late last year showing the park & ride at EA/Limebank being changed to medium & high density residential.

Well thats news to me. Doesn't really make sense with how far bowesville is, but I guess it's still better than nothing.

Good thing we'll be 1km away only...
