Solmar’s Bristol Place will claim the title of Brampton’s tallest buildings

Expanding on its 30 years of GTA experience, Solmar Development Corp has a plan to reach new heights with its latest residential development in Brampton. Titled Bristol Place, the project launched late last year and will see the construction of a pair of 48-story towers, delivering a total of 1,124 new housing units and claiming the title as the tallest buildings in the city of Brampton. Designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects, the project represents an opportunity to activate a strategic location in an emerging community with record-high development.

Beyond the exceptional scale of the development, Bristol Place’s location is central to its identity; Situated on Main Street just north of Queen Street East, the towers will be among the closest developments to the Brampton GO station, enjoying a proximity of just 300 metres. Served by the GO Kitchener Line, passengers can be at Union Station in approximately 40 minutes. The site also benefits from convenient connections to major motorways and commuter routes, and offers a number of public transport options that take passengers directly to the Brampton Gateway Terminal, the next terminus for the Hazel McCallion LRT, now under construction.

In a broader context, the project is also located within Brampton’s evolving Innovation District, an employment hub that is central to the technology sector and entrepreneurial ecosystem in GTA. Planned infrastructure in the district includes a new library, office spaces and the Rogers Telecom headquarters campus, creating new opportunities in GTA’s technology sector, already the second largest in North America.

The project design envisions the towers as identical structures rising from a shared podium. As the tallest in the city, the design uses the podium as a way to reduce the towers before they meet the pedestrian realm, incorporating setbacks to create a distinct separation. As architect Berardo Graziani, Principal at Graziani + Corazza, details in the video linked below, the design focus was on delivering a timeless look that will remain relevant for years to come. Classical motifs, such as the stepped mass of the towers’ crowns, reflect this aim, referencing the enduring traditions of iconic styles such as Art-Deco.

Inside the towers, design work by GCB interior architecture inc. works to achieve the goal of meeting the needs of the contemporary resident, which are more diverse than ever and change at a fast pace. Associate at GCB, Renato Iamonaco talks about the interior design process in the video below.

Spaces such as co-working areas and state-of-the-art fitness facilities, such as I-fit connectivity, are incorporated into the 15,000-square-foot service facilities, of which a panoramic outdoor terrace stands out.

Finally, the suites at Bristol Place are defined by clean, minimalist designs that give residents flexibility while offering unique technology to elevate the living experience. The project will be the first Solmar property to offer the SolmarSuite app, which provides residents with connectivity features such as keyless entry, facial recognition and package delivery updates.

The project has been for sale since the end of last year and still has several suites available with prices starting at $500. Occupancy was set for 2027, indicating that the project could be starting the first construction processes within a year.
