A 124-unit development is proposed for a vacant property with two derelict homes on it in Mississauga.

The property is at 376 and 390 Derry Road West and backs onto a portion of Oaktree Circle, south side of Derry Road West, east of McLaughlin Road in Meadowvale.

Ballymore Homes is proposing to build 120 townhomes, two semi-detached homes and two detached homes as well a commercial building fronting Derry Road West, according to a report to the City of Mississauga. It could bring an estimated 378 people to the area.

The project comes before the City of Mississauga Planning and Development committee for consideration on Monday, June 3. Staff recommends approving the development.

“The proposed development maintains the goals and objectives of the Mississauga Official Plan and is compatible with the surrounding neighbourhood,” the staff report reads.

Ward 11 Coun. Brad Butt held a virtual community meeting on the project on June 20, 2023 but no residents attended and the city hasn’t received written comments opposing or in favour of the development.

The site is mostly vacant aside from two vacant single-storey buildings, which appear to be boarded-up homes, fronting Derry Road West. The property behind the homes was used for transport truck parking until around 2016.

The plan includes 48 three-bedroom condominium townhouses; 72 three-bedroom, back-to-back condominium townhouses; two three-bedroom semi-detached homes, and two four-bedroom detached homes.
