Here are the neighbourhoods with the most new developments coming in Mississauga
Published March 22, 2023 at 11:37 am
Development in Mississauga has hit record highs recently but some communities will see more changes than others in the coming years.
Mississauga’s building boom was noted in November when a record 36 cranes were up and working on development projects across the city.
In 2022, Mississauga saw $370 million worth of new condo development, second only to Toronto’s whopping $4.8 billion.
And the city will need to keep building if Mississauga wants to make the target to build 120,000 housing units in 10 years under the More Homes Built Faster Act.
But according to the city’s development application map, most of the new builds are concentrated in the south end of Mississauga.
A development application map for 2022 shows the majority of applications in south Mississauga.
The City of Mississauga an active development application page that shows current development applications for re-zonings, official plan amendments, and subdivisions. These applications are often for larger projects that must go through council for approval.
The applications are shown for each ward and it may not come as any surprise that Ward 1 (Lakeview and Port Credit) and Ward 7 ( Cooksville, Fairview, Huron Park) have the highest number of applications.
It is possible that some of these applications won’t proceed as described — some due to developer issues and others because they are rejected by council. But as the push for more homes is on, it seems likely that many of these proposals will proceed.
Here are the active development applications for each ward (as of March 22):
Ward 1 (Lakeview, Applewood Acres and Port Credit) – 20 applications
Some of the larger proposals include 42-and 40-storey towers at the Port Credit Go Station, a 3,027-unit development with townhouses and seven towers at 1580 Dundas St. E., and a five building, 1,070 unit development at 579 – 619 Lakeshore Rd. E.
Ward 2 (Lorne Park, Clarkson, Meadow Wood, Park Royal) – two applications
The biggest proposal listed is a plan for four apartment buildings of 29, 27, 25 and 23 storeys containing 1,237 dwelling units at 2077-2105 Royal Windsor Dr. This proposal has shocked residents heartbroken over the loss of the popular Scooter’s Roller Palace.
Ward 3 (Applewood Hills) – 11 applications
The largest proposal here is for two 18-storey apartment buildings with 433 residential units at 1840 and 1850 Bloor St.

Ward 5 (Malton, Ridgewood, Derry West) – eight applications
A stretch of Hurontario Street in Ward 5 will get a bit busier in the future, if these proposals get the go ahead. A development of three apartment buildings of 21, 33, and 43 storeys is proposed for 5081 Hurontario St. And a mega development at 5044 Hurontario St. would bring five condo apartment buildings of 32,36,40,45 and 50 storeys with a total of 2,040 residential units.

Ward 7 ( Cooksville, Fairview, Huron Park) – 20 applications
Along with Ward 1, this area is seeing a lot of development proposals, however, many are for smaller developments.
