Mississauga Urban Design Awards

The results are in, and Churchill Meadows Community Centre is considered the cream of the crop for new urban design in Mississauga.

After months of online voting on the 24 nominated buildings/projects, a total of seven winners were unveiled at the 2023 Mississauga Urban Design Awards on Thursday night.

The buildings were judged based on which ones were the most “innovative, interesting and inspiring” new works in the city. Awards were presented in three categories:

  • Urban Elements: a standalone object that contributes to the quality of the public realm
  • Private Project: a building or group of buildings that achieve urban design excellence
  • Public Project: a building or group of buildings that are accessible and serve the public

Here are the results of the voting:

Nominations for this year’s awards were received between last November and April of this year. A six-member jury was chosen to decide on the winners in various categories.

“Mississauga’s Urban Design Awards are a celebration of excellence for innovative, dynamic, trendsetting urban design projects that are transforming Mississauga,” City of Mississauga officials said earlier.

The Mississauga Urban Design Awards competition, held every two years, began in 1981 and is the longest-running awards program of its kind in Ontario. 

The Urban Design Awards aim to inspire and celebrate design leaders who help raise the quality of life for residents by shaping Mississauga’s diverse cityscape, City officials say.
