Plans are underway to build three new highrise towers in Brampton that could bring over 1,000 new units and retail shopping to the city’s west side.
Development applications have been filed to construct a trio of mixed-use towers on a mostly vacant lot at the corner of Mississauga Rd. and Sandalwood Pkwy. The proposal from developers Primont and designed by Core Architects is for three apartment towers standing 12, 27 and 20 storeys tall built on the site with space for shopping, amenities, and over 1,200 parking stalls.
The three towers will be connected by a shared six-storey podium building with retail space on the ground floor, and the project could bring over 1,000 units to the city ranging from studio apartments to three-bedroom family units.
The application is currently in review, and if approved would see the development built in two phases with the 12-storey “Building B” tower and underground parking constructed first followed by Building A1 at 30 stories and A2 at 27 stories in the second phase.
Some of the development’s features and amenities will include outdoor terraces, swimming pools, gym and fitness centre access, a party room and screening room with lounges, a splash pad, and a playground.
The city is looking to speed up its development application process in order to meet a housing target imposed by the province, saying Region of Peel “servicing constraints” have led to a delay in approvals.
The province has set aggressive housing targets for municipalities across Ontario and the Region said earlier this year that the plan would require an additional 145,000 additional homes in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon by 2031 which could cost more than $20 billion.
And with the province recently announcing the break-up of Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon with plans of dissolving the Region of Peel, the City is calling for the province’s newly appointed Peel Transition Board “to ensure the dissolution of the Region of Peel does not hinder Brampton’s growth or put additional financial pressure on Brampton residents.”insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
