Brampton Real Estate to Parkside Village Condos

Parkside Village Condos

Many of you have been faithfully coming to my real estate blog about Brampton Real Estate for the last several years looking for listings with the hopes of buying a home for sale in Brampton. It’s been a great experience and I’m excited to add another area to my real estate service area.

Parkside Village is a massive condo development that is being built by Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga. Whereas condo developments in Brampton have sputtered and, in some cases, got cancelled altogether, the condo market in Mississauga is strong. Located on Confederation Parkway between Burnhamthorpe Road and Rathburn Road, this community is considered a 10-year project and will feature a handful of high-rise condo towers, low-rise condo towers, and townhouse complexes.

Currently three towers have been built, known as The Residences towers, and two more towers are currently under construction, known as PSV and PSV2. The builder, Amacon, has just announced the release of Block Nine Condos which is currently NOT open to the public. I have VIP access to the development, so if you are interested in registering, please contact me.

In the meantime, I am working on a site that is exclusively for Parkside Village condos, and you’re welcome to visit to find reviews, new listings, information on new releases, and much more.

Heritage area visualization

A big announcement today as as Queen’s Park gave the green light to the new LRT project that will be sending public commuters from Port Credit to Brampton. It’ll be interesting to see how the finished project strikes a balance of moving traffic through areas of businesses without adversely affecting everything else around it.

Construction is expected to start sometime in 2018, with heavy construction along the busiest street between the 2 municipalities. Hopefully the final product will be worth all the aggravation.

What do you think about the LRT?  Good idea or bad? Will it improve congestion problems? Will it destroy the quaintness of downtown Brampton? What sort of implications will this have on the surging real estate market in Brampton? Will real estate along the Hurontario corridor benefit from the LRT with increased demand and prices?

An update to legal basement apartments in Brampton


Several years ago the Province of Ontario passed Bill 140 that required all municipalities to allow the legalization of basement apartments. A lot of attention turned to Brampton because the city’s illegal basement apartment problem was epidemic, and the city took it’s time to study the issue before solidifying it’s by-laws.  Well folks, the time is upon us, so lets get down to the important details you need to know now! For your reference, the City refers to these units as Second Units.

Can I build 2 basement apartments in my house?

No, only one second unit is allowed per property.

Are there any rules to how I build a separate entrance?

The separate entrance must meet all zoning, building code, fire code, and property standards regulations. It must match the existing design of the house in style and material. The entrance can go through the garage. If it is a side yard entrance, it will require a continuous unobstructed path of at least 1.2 meters (or 4 feet).

Is there a maximum size I need to know?

Yes, the second unit can’t exceed 45% of the square footage of the home.

Are there any guidelines with respect to parking?

1 parking space must be available for the second unit, in addition to existing parking required for the property.

Is there a cost to legalizing my basement apartment?

Of course! The initial review fee for zoning compliance is $200. After that, it’s $500 to register (for owner-occupied homes) or $1,000 (for non-owner occupied homes) PLUS building permit fees of approximately $1,000.

What is the fine if I don’t register?

Between $25,000 – $50,000!  Ouch! Register your home!

When can I apply?

If all things go well, June 22, 2015.

I have a beautiful 3 bedroom semi-detached home for sale in Northwest Brampton by Van Kirk and Van Scott.

This home has no homes behind – it backs onto a wooded area that will never be developed. The kitchen is combined with a large breakfast room, and features new counter tops and a ceramic backs splash. The entire kitchen and breakfast area is laid with laminate flooring. There is a separate entrance from the garage which leads to the basement, giving way to the possibility of building a basement apartment in the future.

The basement was finished within the last 5 years and boasts a wet bar, fireplace with remote, pot lights, and a 3 piece bathroom.

The master bedroom is spacious and included a large walk-in closet and a 4-piece ensuite bathroom.

We are asking for $429,000. For more information, please leave a comment below or contact me directly.
