Four new apartment towers, office building and daycare coming to Queen Street in Brampton

Plans are underway to turn a vacant lot into a quartet of high-rise apartment buildings, bringing over 1,500 new residential units to Brampton.
The proposed development would see four 35-storey apartment towers and one four-storey office building built at 241 Queen Street East near the intersection of Queen and Kennedy for a total of 1,586 new units.
Situated near the city’s downtown along the Queen Street Corridor, each residential building would have its own one- or two-storey podium building with retail and shopping, and a daycare on-site.
The city’s planning and development committee heard an update on the site plan on Tuesday (Sept. 25), with the proposal from Hampton Development Corp. and SGLPlanning & Design Inc. looking to transform the currently empty lot into a “pedestrian-oriented streetscape.”
The development would see the development of additional infrastructure with the construction of two new roads, and developers are asking the city for an amendment to zoning bylaw to move forward with the project.
Plans also include underground parking for some 1,600 cars and bicycles, and the community has been designed to encourage walkability, active transportation and transit use to be pedestrian-friendly.
Once approved, the development would be constructed in three phases with Towers A and B built first followed by C and D in phase two and the office building in phase three.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
