A proposal to build five towers with more than 2,000 units on a property in Mississauga with a beer store comes up for discussion on Monday.

The development would transform the property, with three low-rise buildings at Hillcrest Avenue and Hurontario Street, into five residential towers of 46, 43, 43, 39, and 34 storeys.

The proposal for 25 and 33 Hillcrest Avenue, 3146, 3154 and 3168 Hurontario Street is still in its early stages but residents can hear more and provide input at the Planning and Development Committee on Monday (March 27).

The soaring towers could bring 2,224 residential units to the property, which borders the Cooksville GO Station.

Currently, a portion of the property is used as a parking lot for the GO Station, and the plaza is home to a Beer Store, LCBO and convenience store.

The good news is the developer plans to devote 49 per cent of the site (2.6 acres) to publicly accessible walkways, a plaza area with gardens and landscaping, according to the Urban Design Study report for the project.

In response to community feedback, the five towers will have a large community gathering area as a focal point. The proposed central plaza will be open and accessible to the existing community, and will serve the new population from this development as well as the anticipated future growth of Downtown Cooksville, the study notes.

The central plaza will be lined with retail or community spaces on the ground floor of the towers.

There could be outdoor seating at cafés, merchandise displays, and pop up events.

Council approval is needed for an official plan amendment and rezoning for the development to proceed as presented.

No decisions are being made yet, the proposal is still in its early stages and the city would like input from the community.

The Planning and Building Department wants more information on several parts of the application including if it will provide enough parking.

The proposal will be discussed at the Planning and Development committee meeting on March 27 at 6 p.m. For more information, see the public notice here.
