Tallest buildings in Brampton bringing over 1,000 new units to Main Street

Residents at a pair of new condo towers coming to Brampton will have bragging rights for living in the tallest buildings in the city.

The development by Solmar Development is called Bristol Place and will see two condo towers built on Main St. just north of Queen St. East with a total of 1,124 new units.

Located less than a five-minute walk from the Brampton GO station the 48-story towers would be the tallest buildings in Brampton, edging out the 28-story Ritz Towers on Lisa St. according to www.skyscraperpage.com.

Suites range from one-bedroom units to three-bedroom and even a “penthouse collection,” and Solamr says the suites are designed with “smart, space-saving layouts” and bright living areas, sleek modern kitchens, and an impeccable view.

The development is in pre-construction with an anticipated move-in date of 2027. And while once completed it will hold the crown as Brampton’s tallest building, Bristol Place may not hold the title very long as several larger Brampton skyscrapers are already in the development stages.

A pair of proposed towers at 16 Lisa St. could stretch as tall as 65 stories, while a 50-story residential building proposed for 1 Steeles Ave. East could narrowly beat out Bristol Place by just two floors.

Building amenities at Bristol Place will include a lounge, fitness centre, an outdoor yoga and meditation retreat, BBQs, a coworking outdoor space with wifi connectivity, an entertainment lounge, and private dining areas.

Last year Brampton City Council removed a handful of properties on or near the site of Bristol Palace from the city’s Heritage Register to make way for the proposed project.

The properties, many of which are in a state of disrepair, make up a city block’s worth of buildings on Main St. North between Market St. and David St. One of the buildings even predates Canada’s confederation.

Another one of the properties – a seven-bedroom home known as The Blain House – was on sale for a song last year at a price of just $1.00.
