The public can have their say at an upcoming meeting on the plans to demolish a portion of Dixie Mall for a residential development.

The plans have been in the works for several years but in January, Slate Asset Management announced it was moving forward with the development application for a mixed-use community with more than 1,200 units in three (two with two towers) buildings on the Dixie Mall property at 1250 South Service Rd.

The buildings would range from nine to 25 storeys and there would be park space. The buildings would be a mix of condo and rental apartments.

The residential apartments would be in the northwest end of the property, and a portion of the mall would be demolished for the development. Approximately 13.5 per cent or 78,700 square feet at the northwest end of Dixie Outlet Mall would be demolished.

Treasure Hunt, No Frills, Fantastic Flea Market and Winners are not part of the development plans.

The City of Mississauga is now asking for public input on the plans.

In particular, the city is looking for detailed feedback on the urban design, transportation, and housing and other future uses for the site.

A website on the project is soliciting input on questions such as: “How important is it to include retail, office buildings, and other services into the new development?” and “What is important for future parks and public spaces on the site?”

People have asked for low rise buildings – no more than 10 storeys, more transportation, and more park space.

A public, virtual meeting is planned for Tuesday, March 28 at 6 p.m. To register, click here.
