A “boutique” midrise condo will soon occupy a busy intersection in Mississauga’s southeast end.
Brixen Developments recently unveiled plans for its Exhale Condominiums, an 11-storey building that’s taking shape in the Lakeshore Rd. E. and Dixie Rd. area in Mississauga’s Lakeview neighbourhood.
According to a news release, Exhale will feature 284 units ranging in size from 400 sq. ft. to 1,500 sq. ft.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to bring needed housing options and deliver bespoke designs that are sensitive and respond to its surroundings,” said Andrew Iacobelli, co-founder of Brixen Developments, in a news release.
“This is an area of Mississauga we strongly believe in, and we’re proud to bring forward a meaningful vision that unlocks the potential of this site and embraces the exciting changes to come to this neighbourhood.”
The condo, which will also boast retail space, will be located close to the Long Branch GO Station in Etobicoke, as well as major highways such as the 427 and QEW.
Once completed, the building will also be close to several amenities, including golf courses, Marie Curtis Park and the recently-rejuvenated Small Arms Inspection Building, which hosts an array of festivals and events throughout the year.
In a news release, Brixen says it tapped Toronto-based architecture firm Architecture Unfolded, who drew inspiration from “the unique qualities and location of the neighbourhood.”
Once complete, Exhale will feature a four-storey podium clad in ivory masonry that will anchor the site at street level.
“We felt it was necessary to reflect how interesting and unique Exhale’s location is, with an opportunity to elevate the design through masonry detailing,” says Mark Zwicker, principal and co-founder of Unfolded, in a statement.
“The building is one of the first developments of this kind in the area and our aim was to make sure that it sets a standard for future buildings in the neighbourhood. We designed Exhale with a variety of residents in mind, from downsizers to first-time homebuyers. We believe this thoughtful design will appeal to a broad range of residents and bring a unique character to this area.”
As far as interior amenities go, Brixen says the building will feature a co-working space, a large courtyard, a fitness centre, a kid’s playroom, a social room and dining lounge on the ground floor, an outdoor dining area and a rooftop courtyard with BBQs and views of Lake Ontario.
Prices will start in the $500,000s.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
