One of the things that gives a city an Urban feel is public squares. Toronto has Yonge-Dundas Square, Mississauga has Yonge-Dundas Square, and Brampton has Garden Square.
But why settle for just one?
The corner of Lisa and Dixie has been an empty lot for years. It neighbours the city’s busiest shopping area, and is a high density residential area. Some recreational space would be a good fit. As I look at the lot, I picture some architecture, statues, sitting areas and a place for a presentation dias/ stage etc. It has its own Brampton Transit stop already. There are multiple bars in the area, and the intersection is reachable by foot or bike in a relatively friendly manner.
The current zoning is R4A(3) Residential – which is a very restrictive zoning designation. However, with a little vision, this intersection could sustain much more than townhouses or another condo tower (Lisa Street has many already).
