Here are Mississauga’s 5 swankiest and most desirable neighbourhoods
It's no secret that Mississauga has changed from a quiet and sprawling bedroom community to a rapidly urbanizing city that's quickly becoming known for ambitious redevelopment projects (Brightwater and Lakeview Village), higher-order transit projects (the Hurontario LRT), and costly housing.
But while it's become increasingly more challenging for residents to afford homes in Mississauga (and the GTA overall), there are some neighbourhoods that offer more affordable housing options (Malton, City Centre, Cooksville, Mississauga Valleys, etc)—and some that are perfect for those looking for more luxurious lodgings.
Nikhil Oberoi, a sales representative with Cloud Realty, recently put together a list of Mississauga's most and least expensive neighbourhoods and what benefits residents can expect to enjoy should they choose to call one of the areas home.
