Westgate

When: Built circa 1964-1965.

Where: Northeast of Balmoral Drive and Dixie Road.

Who: Built by Bramalea Construction (Peel) Limited

What I Know: The floor plans for the houses in the B-Section south of Balmoral Drive were different and distinguished by numbers, whereas in this phase the plans were all given fantastic names (what is a Lyric Holiday?).

I apologize for the quality of some of these plans, but they are the only copies I have.

31 model homes!! I remember when 26 model homes at Springdale in the 1990s was a big deal! The other neighbourhoods, the “Twin Homes” and “Bramalea on the Park” are in the C-Section, and “Bramalea Woods”  is in the L-Section.65mar13
