Here’s What Mississauga’s Major New Community Will Look Like
Published July 30, 2019 at 5:46 pm
Plans are proceeding for a new community to be built in Port Credit, and construction could start fairly soon if approved.
At the Planning and Development Committee on Monday, July 29, city council endorsed the proposed development of the former Imperial Oil lands (at 70 Mississauga Road S and 181 Lakeshore Road W) to be made into Port Credit West Village (or Brightwater Neighbourhood).
The proposed multi-phase community would reportedly include 2,995 new residential units (townhomes, mid-rise and high-rise up to 29 storeys), retail, parkland and campus (employment, recreation and education) uses on the 72-acre property.

“I am pleased that we are moving forward with next steps to revitalize these former brownfield lands into a vibrant waterfront destination that will attract residents from Mississauga and beyond,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie.
“As an important City-building initiative, this redevelopment will drive tourism, create jobs and boost economic growth, helping put Mississauga on the international map.”

The next step is for the proposed redevelopment plan to go to Council for formal support on July 31. City staff will then attend the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) hearing scheduled for August 7, where a final decision will be made.
If LPAT approves the matter, construction is anticipated to start in 2020.
“The comments received from the public and key stakeholders have helped shape the vision for this dynamic addition to our waterfront,” said commissioner of Planning and Building Andrew Whittemore, who says they will continue to engage with residents in their goal of creating an accessible and sustainable waterfront.

What do you think of the current plans for this new community?
UPDATE: Council officially approved the development on July 31.
Today, Council formally endorsed the West Village/Brightwater Master Plan. I look forward to seeing these former brownfield lands revitalized into a vibrant waterfront destination that will attract residents from #Mississauga and beyond. https://t.co/xmvrPGs4LN
