A revised proposal to build a large residential complex on a plaza property in Mississauga has some residents concerned.

Nearly one year ago, De Zen Group presented a proposal for Streetsville Centre Plaza, 120 and 146 Queen St. S. in Streetsville. At that time, residents raised concerns about the size of the development, which could have brought 1,435 residential units to the plaza site.

The property is currently home to a one-story plaza with a Tim Hortons, Shopper’s Drug Mart, restaurants, a gym and other shops.

Last year, the proposal included two 18-storey buildings connected with a six-storey podium, two 14-storey buildings connected with a three- and four-storey podium, one 12-storey building with podium heights of four- and eight-storeys, one 12-storey building with podium heights of seven storeys, one eight-storey building with podium heights of three- and four-storeys, and one two-storey building adjacent to an existing heritage-designated restaurant.

The current, revised proposal includes:

  • One 15-storey building with an eight- and six-storey podium
  • Two 15-storey buildings, one 12-storey building and one 10-storey building atop a six-storey podium
  • Two 13-storey buildings with podium heights of four- and six-storeys
  • One eight-storey building with podium heights of three- and four-storeys
  • One  two-storey building adjacent to the existing heritage-designated restaurant/bar (Cuchulainn’s Irish Pub)

A network of public and private roads connecting William Street to Crumbie Street, a network of public and private open spaces, and 3,621 square metres of office and commercial space are also in the proposal.

Ward 11 Councillor Brad Butt is hosting a community open house on the new proposal on Thursday (May 16). The project is still in the very early stages and no applications have been submitted to the city.

Concerns about the proposal include traffic, noise and parking in Streetsville, according to a post in Reddit.

But some people like the idea of adding more housing to the area.

“Increasing density could help revitalize the village,” one person wrote on Reddit.

The public can hear from De Zen Group and city staff at the public meeting on May 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Hazel McCallion Hall in Vic Johnston Community Centre, 335 Church St., Mississauga.
