Investing in Brampton’s Downtown
On August 10, 2011, Brampton’s City Council approved the terms of agreement for the Southwest Quadrant Renewal Plan, which enables the City to move forward with a creative solution to meet the City’s future administrative space needs and plans for revitalization of Brampton’s downtown.
The successful proposal, submitted by Dominus Construction Group, is a plan for a mixed-use development, with several new features including new administrative, parking and retail space and a pedestrian-friendly cityscape for completion in 2014.
Phase 1 of the project includes plans for a new nine-storey building at 41 George Street that can accommodate:
- 126,398 foot building for administrative space
- 1,496 square feet for Peel Regional Police Services
- 10,147 square feet for ground retail space
- 10,545 square feet for multi-purpose meeting rooms
- 443 parking spaces (five levels of parking)
Phase 1a includes plans for a two-storey addition to the current City Hall that can accommodate:
- 2,507 square feet for committee rooms
- 6,187 square feet for ground retail space
A strategic investment in Brampton’s downtown
This investment in the Southwest Quadrant Renewal Plan is another major building block in the ongoing evolution and revitalization of downtown Brampton, both in terms of contributing to the urban landscape as well as attracting private sector investment and opportunities.
Combined with other major projects like the Rose Theatre Brampton, the launch of Züm on Queen and Main Streets, restoration work at Alderlea and Peel Heritage Complex and several new condominium projects, Brampton’s downtown is experiencing an exciting resurgence. We look forward to adding another signature building to our downtown core, further enhancing our reputation as a dynamic, world-class city.
