An old OPP detachment could soon be transformed into a condo or apartment tower.

Sajecki Planning submitted a proposal for 49 South Service Rd., at Hurontario Street and the QEW, on behalf of Mississauga’s Edenshaw Developments Ltd.

About a year ago, the province listed the old Mississauga Ontario Provincial Police station at 49 South Service Rd. for sale at just $1, a common real estate sale tactic to inspire bidding.

The old detachment was an 8,000-square-foot building with a parking lot and a garage. It was declared surplus after the OPP opened a new detachment.

Now, it’s set to become a 26-storey residential tower with 352 units, according to the submission to the City of Mississauga.

The building will have 137 parking spaces on three levels of underground parking.

There are also plans for 9,709 square feet of outdoor amenity space and 3,509 square feet of indoor amenity space.

The residential development would be close to a new transit station on the Hazel McCallion LRT and Trillium Health Partners Mississauga Hospital.

“The subject site has exciting potential and represents a rare opportunity for intensification in Mineola without adversely impacting the established neighbourhood,” the submission reads.

KIRKOR Architects and Planners are the designers behind the trapezoid-shaped building, which features staggered balconies. It would rise above the nearby QEW highway in an area with mostly low-rise buildings.

The proposal is still in its early stages and needs approval from council for Official Plan and zoning by-law amendments to proceed.
