About the City Lands project

Identified in the City’s 2040 Vision as a key opportunity, this site of over 100 acres, owned by the City of Brampton, has transformative potential to advance the area as a regional destination.

A 2019 technical analysis identified the strategic opportunity to transform this large, developable precinct (previously referred to as the “CAA Lands”) from a sports complex into a new urban core with major transit-oriented opportunities for high-density residential, business, leisure, and tourism.

Currently, the area located east of Kennedy Road South, west of Highway 410 and to the north of the 407 ETR is the location of the CAA sports and entertainment facility (formerly the Powerade Centre). Redevelopment of the lands aligns with the City’s vision of advancing projects to create “complete communities”.
