The Heart of the Town Centre
Construction of ERA Phase 1 is underway which will see the transformation of an entire block of Plaza Street, between Dewdney Trunk Road and Brown Avenue. This 2.33-acre parcel encompasses a 6-storey North Building, a 5-storey South Building, and two 3-storey ground-oriented apartment buildings in between. A landscaped walkway dividing the GOA buildings will connect the north and south mid-rises, while an outdoor amenity space will establish the western portion of the east-west pedestrian spine that provides an internal link through the entire ERA community. Three commercial retail units on the ground floor of the South Building will front Dewdney Trunk Road. The 49 rental apartments will also be located in the South Building.
