North American Development Group has submitted plans with the City of Brampton to transform a grassy field in the city’s Mount Pleasant area into what the proposal calls a “mixed-use, transit-supportive and walkable development.”
The plans envision four development blocks with a total of 2,801 residential units, along with retail space and 2,204 parking stalls. The development would include rentals and condominiums across seven high rise towers ranging from 28 to 47 storeys.
The proposal requires a zoning by-law amendment approved by the city to increase the permitted height and reduce the parking targets.
Designed by Toronto-based architecture firm Giannone Petricone Associates, the proposal calls for 191,858 sq. m. in gross floor space for residences plus 3,445 sq. m. for retail and 2,626 sq. m. of open space in what it calls publicly accessible private spaces.
The development entails 906 one-bedroom units, 729 one-bedroom plus den units, 721 two-bedroom units, 166 two-bedroom plus den units and 279 three-bedroom units.
Vehicle parking for the project varies across the four proposed development blocks. Each block would have a below ground parking garage with above-grade parking provided on two of the blocks.
