Two, 45- and 50-storey condo towers are being recommended for approval in Brampton.
The two towers, proposed for 137 Steeles Ave. W. south of Steeles Avenue West between Malta Avenue and Lancashire Lane, could be the tallest in the city, once complete.
The 1.91-hectare property is currently occupied by one home.
The developer is proposing a total of 1,147 residential units and 1,622 square metres of commercial space, according to a report to the City of Brampton.

The 45-storey tower would have 541 units with a break down of 81 one-bedroom units, 129 one-bedroom plus den units, 311 two-bedroom units, 10 two-bedroom plus den units, and 10 three-bedroom units.
The 50-storey tower is slated to have a total of 606 units comprised of 144 one-bedroom units, 96 one-bedroom plus den units, 308 two-bedroom units, five two-bedroom plus den units, and 53 three-bedroom units.
A total of 640 underground parking spaces is proposed for the development.
During a public meeting on July 31, residents expressed concerns about the height of the buildings and shadows cast on homes in the area.
In response, the city noted a sun and shadow study from Turner Fleischer Architects that confirmed “the surrounding area will have limited shadowing impacts throughout the day, with some shadowing impacts during the morning hours onto Steeles Avenue West during the spring and fall equinox and winter solstice.”
City planners suggested the proposal “represents good planning” for an under-utilized property.
Staff recommends approving the development with a holding provision. Additional details are needed to address servicing including water, wastewater and stormwater, and public roads.
A traffic impact study is also needed.
The project will be up for discussion and a vote at the Nov. 6 Planning and Development Committee.
