BRAMPTON, ONT. — National Homes and Brixen Developments have announced the launch of DUO Condos, one of the first highrise condominium projects in the City of Brampton.
The 2.6-acre transit-oriented community, situated at the corner of Malta and Steeles avenues, will consist of two towers connected by an outdoor courtyard. The first 26-storey tower will feature 350 suites, most with a balcony or terrace, stated a Nov. 1 release.
The project was designed by IBI Architects. A brick podium is intended to align with the adjacent lowrise neighbourhood with the remaining tower to be clad in black metal and glass.
The interiors were designed by EsQape Design, with a two-storey lobby as a centrepiece. The courtyard will lead to 3,500 square feet of ground-floor retail in the first building.
Amenities include a dining and social room with a full kitchen and bar; a co-working space with nooks for independent working and large tables for collaboration; and a fitness studio featuring a cardio section, spaces for yoga, pilates and spinning; and a separate room for private classes or a group session.
The first tower has options for a studio, one bedroom, one plus flex space, two bedrooms and two plus den. Prices are described as “affordable,” starting from the $400,000s.
“Since 1992, we have had the great privilege of contributing to Brampton’s growth and evolution, including the development of over 1,850 homes in eight communities,” said Jason Pantalone, president and managing partner with National Homes, in the release. “Brampton is quickly becoming a new urban centre with its own distinct identity, and we’re thrilled to bring one of the city’s first highrise condos to life, setting a benchmark for quality in a shared vision with Brixen Developments.”
Andrew Iacobelli, co-founder of Brixen Developments, stated, “Situated minutes from the new Brampton Gateway Terminal LRT, DUO Condos will be a model for thoughtful communities, offering much-needed housing options and amenities that cater to the evolving demographics of the city.”
