Major Hotel Chain To Open Unique Location in Brampton
Brampton is constantly growing and as it grows, so does the number of tourists. Whether it is people visiting their relatives, coming for business, or seeing local attractions, visitors to the city are becoming more and more common.
And, now a big company has submitted a new application to build a major hotel in the city.
Waheguru Investments Inc. has partnered with Gagnon Walker Domes Ltd. to construct a new hotel at 0 Steeles Avenue East.
The Holiday Inn Express Hotel will be six-storeys and a 15-minute drive away from Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Holiday Inn Express is a mid-priced hotel chain within the InterContinental Hotels Group family of brands, which offers limited services at a reasonable price.
Located on the northeast side of Steeles Avenue and West Drive, the development project is still under review, and so most information is not confirmed yet. The city will host an open house to hear the public’s opinions on October 7 from 6:15 to 6:45 at City Hall.
The company has proposed a six-storey hotel development, which consists of 110 hotel units and 486 sq.m of amenity area that includes meeting, recreational, dining and lounge space. The front yard will be designed with an arrangement of shrub hedging framing the entry walkway and a "Holiday Inn Express" sign.
There will also be a total of 106 parking spaces provided on-site, including six accessible parking spaces, constructed in a simple loop system that is easy to navigate.
The site will also be accessible by the Brampton Rapid Transit (BRT), which connects transit riders to major locations and transit connections, including the Go stations (Brampton Go, Bramalea GO, Lisgar Go and Mount Pleasant Station) and the Zum rapid transit route.
With the development, the company aims to provide a strong streetscape presence along Steeles Avenue East.
