Urban Toronto reports that downtown Brampton will be experiencing significant vertical growth, particularly around the Brampton GO station— a designated Major Transit Station Area (MTSA) with a new 50-storey development which aligns with the province’s focus on transit-centric projects, as improvements to the GO line promise enhanced travel in the Greater Toronto Area.

According to Urban Toronto, a recent pre-application proposal for the tower situated at 118 Queen Street West at the corner of Queen Street West and Mill Street, suggests a transformation that includes 544 residential units and 568 square metres of retail space on the ground floor, enriching the streetscape.

Designed by DIALOG for Constantine Enterprises, the project features a six-storey podium with commercial spaces and amenities.

Urban Toronto mentions the development will include 1,093 square metres of indoor amenity space and 1,839 square metres of outdoor amenity space on the 7th level, with an additional 433 square metres of at-grade amenity space planned for the rear of the site.

Residents and visitors can look forward to reduced wait times, with seven elevators ready to efficiently transport them throughout the building

Urban Toronto says the design also includes a 7-level underground garage with 603 parking spots (494 for residents and 109 for visitors), though bicycle facilities remain unspecified.

Living here means you’re just a 7-minute walk from Brampton GO station, with easy access to Brampton Transit and the future Hurontario LRT extension.

This project is one of 15 in the pipeline around Brampton GO station, with buildings ranging from 42 to 54 storeys.
