Brampton-York Region Developments

This is a general thread for new developments happening in the York Region. Towns and cities included are: Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, and Whichurch-Stoufville. Brampton is technically part of Peel region, but is grouped in here because (just like the rest) its is essentially a suburb of Toronto and Mississauga already has its own thread.

The first phase of UPTOWN MARKHAM is RIVER PARK, a stunning ensemble of low and high rise condominium residences that are elegant, energy efficient, maintenance-free and truly affordable.
Quote:
In addition, UPTOWN SQUARE will be built in the very heart of the community -- a great European style plaza that will harmoniously blend together residential with retail. The over 170,000 square feet of neighborhood shops, services and supermarkets are scheduled to be open for the shopping pleasure of the community’s first residents the day they move in. All this in the finest and most prestigious location north of Toronto.

Don't know why the website is showing off the new Vaughn subway terminal with these condos. The future subway location is at least a 10-15 minute drive down the road form these condos.

Controversial new plan could finally give Brampton its downtown

Published On Mon May 23 2011
Urban Affairs Reporter
San Grewal






Quote:
As Brampton's population continues to swell the nation's tenth largest city remains desperate for a downtown that will give it an identity.

But a plan that could cost more than half a billion dollars accepted after more than 20 years of promises now has many questioning the vision Brampton's leaders have endorsed.
Quote:
Today, when you walk the intersection of Queen St. and Main St. — the centre of historic Brampton — it has the look and feel of a sleepy town, not a city of 500,000 people. A hodge-podge of ageing single-storey buildings home to a variety of small businesses and services line the streets. Unlike the draw of a vibrant downtown it is devoid of lively pedestrian traffic and a bustling commercial scene.
Quote:
Bramptonians recognize the need to replace the buildings of a bygone era with modern, urban corridors that will attract the brightest people and best businesses flocking to the region; or risk losing out to neighbouring communities while outlying sprawl continues.
Quote:
With mounting demands to finally act on old promises, city council recently approved a bid by developer Dominus Cityzen Fernbrook to recreate the downtown.

Supporters say the plan fulfills a much needed large-scale expansion of city hall, modern office and retail spaces, parking and a new library.
Quote:
They want to know why the cost is about twice that of a bid that was disqualified under a selection process they call secretive--only two bids were eventually considered for the largest project in the city's history. The Dominus bid, for just the first of three phases (the city hall work), has a ceiling of $205 million, which includes construction and leasing costs over 25 years. The construction cost for phase two and three is $157 million, not including financing costs.
Quote:
When Brampton's population started to balloon council realized the city had to choose — either define itself or become a feeder city to Toronto and booming Mississauga. The city moved to define itself and embarked on a path of downtown revitalization.
Quote:
The options council faced were stark: Scramble to become the dense urban city that the province mandated under its growth strategy, with modern industries, transit hubs and its own commercial/cultural centre; or allow the comfortable pattern of donut style growth to continue as the city settled into its identity as a bedroom community.
Quote:
But with Brampton now on track to finally fulfill the promise of a defining downtown to draw residents in and create the feel of being its own city, taxpayers such as Chris Bejnar are more worried than ever.

“I am a huge supporter of downtown development,” says Bejnar, who has become the loudest voice advocating for fellow residents. “But why are there so many questions about the Dominus bid the city won't answer? Why is the cost so high and why don't we know if it even includes the whole project”?

Bejnar and other critics of the bid also want to know how the $205 million for just the first phase will be paid for.
