A new proposed development will add approximately 200 new affordable rental housing units in Brampton.
- Applications open
To provide residents and stakeholders in the area with information about the upcoming proposed Chelsea Gardens development, we’re currently working through our informal public and stakeholder consultation process. The objective is to provide information about the proposed development and respond to any questions.
We look forward to your support for this exciting project.
A proposal has been made to amend the City of Brampton Zoning Bylaw to permit a third rental apartment building with a height of 20 storeys and a total of 200 units.
A request for proposal for Architectural Consulting Services for design and development has been posted for this project.
Chelsea Gardens is located at 4 and 10 Knightsbridge in Ward 7 in Brampton, near the intersection of Queen Street and Central Park Drive.
Chelsea Gardens is close to:
- Bramalea bus terminal
- Grocery stores
- Bramalea City Centre shopping mall
- Peel Civic Centre and Chinguacousy library
It is also walking distance to local parks, including Knightsbridge Park, Clark Park, Fallingdale Park, and Chinguacousy Park.
Chelsea Gardens is a project included in the Peel Region Council approved Housing Master Plan. This long-term capital infrastructure plan guides how we’ll create more affordable housing in Peel.
Chelsea Gardens has proven to be a favorable site because of its location, access to transit and other services. Currently, Chelsea Gardens is a 250-unit Peel Housing Corporation residential development made up of 2 apartment buildings,13 storeys each.
The new development would involve adding a third apartment building at the location, up to 20 storeys in height. The new tower will have approximately 200 units.
The Region of Peel hosted an informal community consultation with its planning consultants for residents on January 19. Access the recording.
The property is currently designated “Residential High Density,” which permits up to 247 residential units per net hectare:
Chelsea Gardens currently has a density of 155 units per net hectare. With current policies, a new apartment building with up to 147 units can be constructed. 200 units are proposed as indicated in Council approved Housing Master Plan (HMP). This requires an amendment to policy 184.108.40.206. of the Secondary Plan.
Zoning By-law amendments are required for:
Additional height, density, surface parking and relief to setbacks, landscaping and visitor parking.
Chelsea Gardens is a residential project. The new tower will include additional parking and barrier-free units. There will not be balconies at the new building.
There will be common areas for residents of the new building.
A shadow study review was completed for Chelsea Gardens and revealed minimal shadowing impact for existing units.
Traffic and access
A traffic study was completed for Chelsea Gardens, which includes residents driving to and from the area during peak hours.
The new building will have dedicated underground and surface parking.
Applications for rent-up are not yet available at this stage in the planning process.
