Plans to demolish and redevelop a portion of Dixie Mall in Mississauga come to a public meeting on Monday.

Slate Asset Management plans to demolish part of Dixie Mall for a mixed-use community with more than 1,200 units in three (two with two towers) buildings.

The buildings would range from nine to 25 storeys with a mix of condo and rental apartments. About 3.5 acres of park space and publicly accessible lands are also in the proposal.

Most of the mall, at 1250 South Service Rd., will remain untouched. The proposal is to redevelop 7.1 acres along the northwest boundary of the larger 35.5-acre site. This would mean approximately 13.5 per cent or 78,700 square feet at the northwest end of Dixie Outlet Mall will be demolished.

No decisions are being made yet on the project. The public is invited to comment on the proposal at the Planning and Development committee meeting on Monday, May 8 starting at 6 p.m.

The proposal requires an official plan amendment to permit additional height. A zoning change is also needed to proceed.

But before the committee makes a decision, there are a few outstanding issues including parking spaces. The required number of parking spaces for a development of this size would be 1,265 spaces but only 1,137 spaces are in the plans, according to the planning report.

The Planning and Development department also notes questions that need to be resolved.

In public meetings, residents questioned if the proposed development is compatible with the existing and planned character of the area given the proposed density and building heights.

The Planning and Building Department is considering if the servicing configuration, the proposed official plan amendment and zoning by-law amendment are appropriate.
