Mount Pleasant Village, City of Brampton

Mount Pleasant Village is a compact, mixed-use, transit oriented with a hierarchy of urban building forms including: low-rise apartments, live-work townhouses, lane townhouses, street townhouses, single dwellings, a school and a library which incorporates the historic CPR station. The character of built form was designed to complement the Mount Pleasant Transit Hub using architectural influences and materials characteristic of early 20th Century rail line suburbs. As Control Architect for the community, our firm was responsible for ensuring that the design and siting of built form was carefully coordinated to promote walkability by minimizing the negative visual impact of garages on the streetscape, utilizing alternative design standards to create a comfortable pedestrian zone, promoting landmark architectural references in key areas of the neighbourhood to facilitate wayfinding and by ensuring consistent and high quality architecture throughout.
