When: The very first area of houses in Bramalea were built circa 1959 and were occupied in 1960 .
Where: The eastern half of the A-Section, between Bramalea Road and Aloma Park and Addington Park, and south of Algonqiun Boulevard.
Who: Built by V. V. DeMarco Properties Ltd., Westbury-at-Bramalea, Sylvan Construction Co. Ltd., Bren-Bar-Kay Construction Co. Ltd.
What I Know: These plans represent the model homes – but many different designs were built.
A unique aspect of the A-Section is that the semi-detached and detached houses are intermixed (50% of each kind), whereas in later years they were often built in separate sections. The dream of Bramalea was to include housing for “all walks of life”, so the wide variety of plans in this area was the first step towards this goal.

Sometimes I find historic floor plans in the most unlikely places. Thanks to inter-library loans, I was able to recently track down these plans at Waterloo University Library!
