14-storey apartment building to replace demolished supermarket in Mississauga
Published October 25, 2023 at 2:04 pm
A vacant piece of land that was home to a supermarket is slated for re-development.
The property at 7085 Goreway Dr. in Malton was once the Starwind supermarket and before that a Longo’s, but now an apartment building has been approved for the property.
The Starwind has been closed for several years and the building was torn down in 2022. The now vacant lot sits next to a Mississauga Fire and Peel Paramedics station.

The plan now is to build a 14-storey apartment building with 228 units along with ground floor retail or commercial space, according to an application from developer IBI Group that was recently approved.
The unit breakdown, according to a March 2023 report from IBI, is 100 one-bedroom units, 81 two-bedroom units, and 47 three-bedroom units.
It isn’t clear if any of the units would be earmarked as affordable — in response to a question about affordable units, the answer was that it will be “a market rental apartment building” meaning the units will be priced at market levels.
This latest application was accepted earlier this month after modifications.
Originally, the developer proposed two apartment buildings, 16 and 18 storeys high, connected by a two storey podium and 12 townhomes for a total of 283 units.
Changes to the proposal include reducing the height of the remaining apartment building and the removal of the townhouse blocks at the rear of the site.
The northern access road is gone. And there is a larger private amenity area and more surface parking spaces.
