40-storey condo towers planned for Mississauga GO station parking lot
Published June 27, 2022 at 3:55 pm
City planners are considering a proposal to build two highrise condominium towers on a GO station parking lot in the south end of Mississauga.
The plan to build 40- and 42-storey condos at Park St. E. and Ann St. (northeast corner), the Port Credit GO station parking lot, is being proposed by Edenshaw Queen Developments Limited.
The proposal calls for a total of 1,139 residential units in addition to ground- and second-floor commercial space.
The matter will be brought before the City of Mississauga’s planning and development committee at a July 5 committee and public information meeting.
In a report dated June 10 to be presented to members at that meeting, planning and building commissioner Andrew Whittemore said the objective at this point is to provide preliminary information about the project and seek comments from the community.
“The applicant is proposing to amend the height schedule of the Port Credit Local Area Plan, which currently permits a height maximum of 22 storeys over a portion of the site…,” the report reads.
“The site is currently operating as the most southerly portion of the Port Credit GO station parking lot and is situated in between the future Hurontario LRT (light rail transit) station that is currently under construction and the Ann St. right-of-way, leading north up to the Port Credit GO station.”
The planning and building department will make a recommendation on the proposal after the public meeting has been held and any outstanding issues have been resolved, the report noted.
Matters to be addressed with the proposal include: provision of additional technical information, review of reduced parking standards and ensuring compatibility of new buildings with the area.
