Bellair on the Park

When: Sales began in 1987

Where: 22 and 24 Hanover Road

Who: Bramalea Limited

What I Know: This land was long set aside for high density residential dating back to the 1969 Master Plan. The Sierra tower to the west of the complex was begun first, but is completely separate. These are among the most luxurious and expensive of the condominium apartments in Bramalea.

The layout of the complex follows a similar format used by Bramalea Limited at the time across North America, with towers surrounded by a lush private park-like setting and featuring a luxurious recreation centre.

The prices for the units varied rather dramatically over time, tied to changes in the economy and real estate market. From a starting price for units of $99,900 in 1987, they soared to starting at $225,000 in 1989, then deflating to a starting price of $154,900 in 1991.

The two towers have walls of glass common with Bramalea Limited’s designs at the time. Only two units per floor have balconies, and a number of units have sun rooms.

Tower 1 is 22 floors tall, and Tower 2, on the east side, is 24 floors tall making them among the tallest of all of the towers in Bramalea, only surpassed by a few buildings in the Lisa Street neighbourhood.

Both towers have nearly identical plans, with different names, in mirror image of each other. I am missing a few plans from Tower 1 – but I have the corresponding plans for Tower 2.

A special thank you to Richard F. for sharing these floor plans with me!
