Proposal for a 39-storey highrise with a mix of student housing (up to the 10th floor, with  27 2-bedroom units and 50 4-bedroom units) and 276 apartments above. (25 Bachelor,133 1 Bedroom, 103 2 Bedroom, 15 3 Bedroom, with a retail unit on the corner of John and Chapel. The landowners/developers are listed as Mr. Mario Matteo Silvestro, Mr. Guido D’Alesio, and 2088205 Ontario Ltd.

The architecture is blah - it wouldn't look out of place on College Street near U of T or Dundas St East. There's only one elevator for the student units (which have a separate entrance), and three for the apartment units.

Going to the August 22 planning and development meeting.

Is there nothing in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act requiring a redundant elevator in new builds? You can't be leaving people trapped in their unit for weeks if there's a planned or unplanned outage/breakdown.

That's a really good question. The other three elevators appear to be sealed on the 2nd through 10th floors. That's a long climb up for anyone should that single elevator go down.

Never mind if someone needs a wheelchair!

Since the two stairwells appear accessible to both condo floors and student housing floors, I don’t see why a fob system can’t be used with all elevators available to all residents.

This is one of the first times I’ve seen a “poor door” entry used in Canada too.

I get that there’s a need for student housing in Brampton – even Sheridan College has a lot of foreign students, never mind the planned downtown post-secondary campus – but I don’t like how the two uses are segregated as they are.

...lots of pointless horizontal lines suggests the window walls isn't going to be the best caliber for this one. And to put it mildly.
