Located at the intersection of Rest Acres Road and Highway 403 just west of the City of Brantford limits is a 75-hectare upscale business / industrial park. The County of Brant acquired 60 hectares of the business park in 2010.
The County retained GSP Group to assist in obtaining draft plan approval for approximately 17 hectares of the park that had not yet been sold or developed. GSP Group worked closely with the County and agencies to obtain approvals for an industrial draft plan of subdivision that allows the County to attract and retain business.
The park contains extensive plant buffers, thoughtful entrance treatments, stormwater management area plantings, and streetscape tree planting. Careful consideration was given to incorporating sustainable landscape principles in design of the development.
GSP Group worked with engineers and the County of Brant to provide planning approvals, site plan and landscape design services from concept through to tender. The landscape scope of work included approvals, stormwater management planting, streetscape design development, construction services, and contract administration.
