5 of the Biggest Condo Developments Coming to Mississauga
Once a bedroom community known for sprawling subdivisions filled with tidy detached houses, the City of Mississauga has grown exponentially to become more of a semi-urban space full of impressive skyscrapers and unique high-rise condos.
And while everyone knows more and more condo projects are being announced by the day, not everyone knows that some truly sleek towers are coming—or have been proposed—for our fair city.
Here’s a look at five of the biggest and most interesting condos planned or proposed for Mississauga.
5) The Wesley Tower
Daniels, the development company that built a number of City Centre towers (including the Capital Condominiums on Living Arts Drive and Limelight near Sheridan College), is gearing up to introduce its latest City Centre development—the 40-storey Wesley Tower. The tower, set to take shape at Confederation Parkway and City Centre Drive, will boast 23 acres of space and function as a mixed-use residential community. The Wesley Tower, part of the overall Daniels City Centre master plan, has been designed by Rafael & Bigauskas Architects. According to Daniels, the tower’s interiors include a few choice amenities, such as a gym, children’s play spaces, co-working areas and an outdoor terrace.
4) The Icon Architects Cooksville Condo
Although Cooksville isn’t typically associated with newer condos, it’s likely going to undergo some gentrification once the LRT kicks off. When that happens, glossy new condos will likely start popping up in the area. As of now, an applicant is requesting permission to construct a 29 storey apartment building with 300 units. The building includes a three storey podium containing 388.3 m2 (4,179.6 ft2) of retail and/or office commercial uses on the ground floor and residential units on the second and third floors.
3) Edge Towers
Sometimes, proposed towers look very, very cool. In 2016, Solmar Development Corp. was given the go-ahead to construct its super-sexy Edge Tower Condos and, judging from the artistic rendering (see photo above), they’re going to be a tremendously cool addition to Mississauga’s evolving skyline. The two-tower project will take shape in the Elm and Hurontario area and stand at a whopping 37 storeys.
2) Arc Condominiums
While City Centre has been the focus of most condo developers, some companies are looking beyond Square One to fast growing neighbourhoods in need of sleeker and more urbane skylines. With the Erin Mills area growing fairly rapidly, Daniels has cornered the market and erected three buildings in Erin Mills Parkway and Eglinton region. The brand built the West Tower Residential Condominiums, Skyrise Rental Residence and the incoming Arc Condominiums. The unique design will have a luxury cruise ship feel and 15,000 sq. ft. of retail space and two floors (or 50,000 sq. ft.) of office space.
1) M City
The highly-anticipated new development is slated to become a 10-tower, 15-acre, 4.3 million sq. ft. community that will feature over two acres of public parkland (which is good, as we all know green space is a big deal). For those who are unaware, the M City plan is ambitious and vast and will be overseen by a number of firms, including Urban Capital, the Cooper Robertson architecture and urban design firm, the CORE Architects architecture and interior design company, Cecconi Simone interior design company and Baker Real Estate Inc. Suites will reportedly range in size from 404 square feet to 884 square feet. Prices shuld start at $233,900 and go up to $526,900. Buyers can expect to begin occupying the first tower, which will be the flagship building (and the tallest in the city) for Rogers Garden City, in 2021. The 60-story building will rise above a five-storey podium and boast 776 suites.
