Market Square: Downtown Brampton

Streetscape Design

Market Square is an ambitious downtown urban renewal project in the City of Brampton. A partnership between local business interests and the City has resulted in a new City Hall, The Belvedere residential tower and business centre, underground parking facilities, a performing arts centre and a number of urban design projects. The existing railway embankment presented one of the more challenging aesthetic features along Market Street.

Excavations of the adjacent parking garage unearthed many large 19th century fir timbers, giving rise to the concept of a foreground edge of a timber colonnade enhanced with colourful backdrop planting, providing an aesthetic link between Main Street and Market Street.
