A huge development proposal that could bring more than 6,700 people to a Mississauga neighbourhood faces more delays.

The project for 1580 to 1650 Dundas St. E., near Dixie Road, currently home to Dunwynn Centre, could bring more than 6,000 residents to the area.

The 3,027 residential unit development from 4Q Commercial WP Inc. (Hazelview Investments) first came up for discussion about a year ago.

The project includes three blocks of townhouses, seven buildings with a maximum height between 12 and 18 storeys and three buildings with a maximum height between 29 and 41 storeys. Both condominium and purpose-built rental units are proposed.

The multi-building development would include 169 bachelor units, 1,706 one-bedroom units, 731 two-bedroom units, 236 three-bedroom units, and 185 townhouse units.

The developer took the project to the Ontario Land Tribunal in April for a non-decision from council, and a meeting is coming up in October.

City planners support intensification in this area of Mississauga but indicate the proposal is incomplete, according to a report to the Sept. 18 Planning and Development Committee.

Outstanding issues include determining the buffers around Little Etobicoke Creek ravines, and insuring a property line accurately reflects the expanded right-of-way to accommodate a proposed Bus Rapid Transit on Dundas Street East.

The Ministry of the Environment flagged potential ground contamination as the property was possibly used for the disposal of industrial waste. That onsite contamination must be properly addressed before the project begins.

Also, there were technical studies to be addressed, as well as parking and traffic issues.

The city planners and the developer feel Ontario Land Tribunal led mediation would be beneficial in this case.

A case management conference call has been scheduled for Oct. 31.

This development will be discussed at the upcoming Planning and Development Committee meeting on Sept. 18. For more information, see the meeting agenda here.
