|Design and construction|
A park on the site for many years was home to the Brampton Cenotaph (opened in 1928 by Governor General Lord Willingdon) , it was named Memorial Park. (A park at South Fletcher's Sportsplex now uses the name and the old former park named Ken Whillans Square) A downtown bus terminal on part of the site opened after 1976 and was closed at some point before 1989, to accommodate construction of the building. (bus services have been relocated to the Downtown Transit Centre)
A nine storey tower opened in 2014 at 41 George Street as part of the Southwest Quadrant Renewal Plan and is connected to City Hall by a glass walkway called Heritage Way. It will house city staff, community rooms and retail space. The site required the demolition of a 4 storey commercial building and a parking lot.
