5 Biggest Condos in Mississauga
Love them or hate them (and other than maintenance fees, what’s not to love about them?) condos are here to stay in Mississauga.
The last bastion of “affordable housing” (although prices are climbing, as TREB reports that condos are currently selling for more than $420,000 in the 905 alone), condos are becoming universally appealing in a city where detached houses are continuing to hover around the $900k-$1 million mark and simple towns are costing buyers well over half a million. People who want to get into the market—or simply rent in a building rich with amenities—are turning to condos and the city isn’t slowing down its plans to welcome more high-rises over the coming years.
With that in mind, some might wonder what condos are the biggest in terms of units.
Well, wonder no more.
Believe it or not (and I’m sure you do), some existing condos boast over 500 units (that’s a lot of residents). Condos with hundreds of units tend to sometimes function as communities onto themselves, boasting pools, gyms, recreational facilities, lush terraces and communal patios with BBQs.
Here’s a look at the condos with the most units in Mississauga:
1) Ovation at City Centre
Tridel development Ovation, located on Duke of York Blvd. in City Centre, boasts multiple buildings. The condo has towers at 3888 and 3880 Duke of York Blvd. and 310 Burnhamthorpe Rd. W. Constructed between 2002 and 2005, the condo community boasts a total of 1,399 units between its three buildings. 3888 houses the most residents, boasting a total of 472 units.
2) Parkside Village Tower A
It’s hard not to notice the rapidly expanding Parkside Village condo community taking shape in City Centre. The community itself is vast and growing (and it’ll be interesting to consider just how dominated by condos the City Centre core will be once the massive M City project breaks ground just across the street from PSV) and one of its towers—the building at 4011 Brickstone Mews—boasts 592 units.
3) Enfield Place
One of Mississauga’s more mature buildings (it was built in 1988), the vast high-rise houses 514 units. Located at 265 and 285 Enfield Place, the tower—tucked away behind the Sussex Centre and fronted by such popular hidden restaurant gems as Udupi Madras Cafe and Seoul House—is one of the city’s more old school dwellings (which typically means it offers more spacious units).
4) Pinnacle Grand Park
This fairly new building, located on Grand Park Drive just off of Burnhamthorpe Rd. in City Centre, boasts 469 units in total. The condo, which comes in at 48 storeys, is walking distance from a host of useful amenities—including a UFC gym, a Pho Mii and Green Grotto (one of Mississauga’s finest bubble tea joints).
5) Absolute World
Absolute World, better known as one of the twisty Marilyn Monroe towers, is located at 50 Absolute Ave. and boasts a whopping 50 storeys and 462 units. Although the tower was built as recently as 2009, it has quickly become one of the city’s most iconic structures and defining features.
So if you’re looking for a condo, these ones might be worth zeroing in on if you’re looking for community and lots (and lots) of neighbours.
