All this month, UrbanToronto is shining a spotlight on sustainable urban development, looking at initiatives that embody forward-thinking environmental stewardship. In Brampton's Bram West neighbourhood, The Daniels Corporation's OMG 2 (Olivia Marie Gardens Phase 2), designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects, is offering electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure for its low-rise condominium project.

Located at 58-62 Sky Harbour Drive on Brampton's west side, just east of Mississauga Road and north of Olivia Marie Road, OMG 2 comprises two 4-storey buildings, each housing 67 suites.

OMG 2's EV infrastructure is in line with The Daniels Corporation's increasing focus on sustainability, as seen with its decarbonization roadmap. It emphasizes the minimization of Whole Life Carbon, referring to the total carbon emissions associated with a building over its entire lifespan. All Daniels projects which began development between 2021 and 2025 are committed to achieving a 40% reduction compared to the baseline established from Daniels' projects developed between 2018 and 2020. Looking ahead, communities developed from 2026 onwards will aim to achieve Near-Zero Whole Life Carbon.

OMG 2 is playing its part in this with its turnkey Electric Vehicle Charging Station Upgrade Package. This offering provides residents with fully installed Level 2 electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE), supporting the charging of any North American EV. The embedded billing-grade electricity meter ensures that consumption is metered and billed directly to the owner through the Electric Vehicle Energy Management System (EVEMS), separate from the suite's electrical consumption.

In response to the growing demand for accessible and convenient EV charging solutions, Daniels has planned accessible parking stalls with EV charging capabilities, ensuring that all residents can benefit from this eco-friendly feature. The Level 2 charging stations provide sufficient power to efficiently charge an EV for the average user.

To ensure compatibility and flexibility, OMG 2's EV chargers will be Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP)-compliant, allowing any Electric Vehicle Energy Management System (EVEMS) provider to offer their services to the condominium for system management. This open-source approach guarantees that residents can charge any North American EV, including Teslas, with ease.

As EV adoption continues to rise, OMG 2 is well-prepared for future expansion. The EVEMS incorporates load management capabilities, regulating charge speeds when the total load of all installed chargers surpasses the property's capacity. This smart feature allows for the addition of more EV chargers without the need to upsize electrical infrastructure, ensuring that more residents can access these services as demand grows.

Beyond its impressive EV infrastructure, OMG 2 boasts a host of other features that contribute to a comfortable and sustainable lifestyle. The fully glazed, large windows and balcony sliding doors will be double-glazed with low-E coatings and filled with argon gas for optimal energy efficiency. The buildings' exteriors are designed with premium bricks and fibre cement panels, complemented by low-maintenance pre-finished aluminum fascia, soffits, and vinyl casement windows.

Inside, residents will enjoy approximately 9' high finished ceilings in suites, and kitchens with a choice of granite or quartz countertops. Furthering OMG 2's sustainable approach, the bathrooms are equipped with low-water consumption toilets and low-flow showerheads, alongside aesthetic touches like clear glass shower enclosures complete with chrome finish frames and white acrylic bases.

Move-in ready suites are now available starting from the mid $500s. For more information, interested parties are encouraged to visit the weekly open houses or contact The Daniels Corporation directly.
