With Brampton’s population growth and all of the developments that are coming here, it’s no surprise that new high-rises are on their way to support our city.
Condos are, on average, significantly more affordable than low-rise town, semi and detached houses and they often come with on-site amenities that make communal living more attractive – most residents are happy to be able to swim or workout without having to pay a hefty fee for a gym membership. While condo residents must pay non-negotiable fees, they’re often spared monstrous home prices and for that reason alone, condos are becoming a popular housing alternative for young professionals, young families and older residents looking to downsize.
Here are a few up and coming buildings proposed to take shape in Brampton soon.

Rhythm Phase 2 tower
This 31-storey tower at 209 Queen Street East is set to give some company to the existing Rhythm Condos near Queen and Kennedy, the final phase in the Mattamy Rhythm development. Rhythm Phase 2 will boast 272 dwelling units, rental tenure and commercial space on the ground floor.
The Zoning By-law amendment has been approved by Council but appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), and a site plan application has been submitted, according to the City of Brampton.
You might have already seen the massive signs for the upcoming Symphony Condominiums, set to tear down and reconstruct the building where the 26-year-old breakfast restaurant Kosy Korner stood, attached to some offices, at 145 and 147 Queen Street East. Symphony condos will consist of one 23-storey residential condo building with 156 dwelling units and one five-storey office building with 5,169 square metres of floor area.
The suites will start in the $300,000s with units of up to 1,030 square feet, and you can already register for your spot in the building. Check out Symphony condos’ website here.
According to the City, Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments have been approved “in principle” and a Site Plan Application has been submitted, but applications are awaiting finalization.
Rose Garden Residences
New towers are indeed proposed for downtown Brampton at 122-130 Main Street North, 6 and 7 Nelson Street East, and 7 and 11 Church Street East. These three towers are proposed to have 23, 25, and 27 stories, with one three-storey stacked townhouse building. The Rose Garden Residences will boast 590 units and 5,205 square metres of commercial space.
What’s their status? According to the City, a Zoning By-law amendment application has been received, and a public meeting will be held sometime soon to get public input on the proposal.
80 Scott Street
This upcoming 16-storey tower would be built at – you guessed it – 80 Scott Street! The address is near Queen Street East and Centre Street North. With a total of 450 dwelling units, an Official Plan/Zoning By-law Amendment application has been received. Next up, a public meeting will be held to get more input on the proposal.
