The Exchange District mixed-use development to be built in the heart of Mississauga’s downtown core will bring with it at least one internationally renowned restaurant and another several well-known establishments.

OHS Global, which operates Weslodge, Patria and Byblos restaurants, among others, as part of its hospitality portfolio, plans to open a first Mississauga location as part of the award-winning planned community to be built at City Centre Dr. and Kariya Gate, directly across from Square One.

Exchange District will feature three condominium towers, including a 66-storey structure with a 10,000-sq.-ft. penthouse suite selling for $15 million, a rental residence and a boutique hotel.

More than two million square feet of retail, shopping, dining, office and commercial spaces, new public parks and other open spaces are also planned.

Toronto mainstays Edo Japan sushi restaurant and Zaza Espresso Bar will also be featured in the mix of food spots and cafes.

In fact, the developer says, the plan is for Zaza to operate “seasonal outposts” in the impressive outdoor plaza where people congregate.

A staircase dubbed “The Mississaugan Steps,” inspired by “The Spanish Steps” in Rome, will open up onto that plaza.

“That plaza, with those stairs, is really going to add a lot to the city life,” the developer says in a promotional video.

Weslodge Bar and Restaurant, with locations in Toronto and Dubai, is described as “a modern saloon” with a “sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere” that features an extensive selection of mixed classic drinks and an “elegant, but hearty menu.”

Toronto’s Patria, where “authentic Spanish tapas is done right,” has received numerous accolades and features an extensive menu that includes delicately prepared crispy jamon croquettes and traditional paellas.

Byblos, with locations in Toronto and Miami, brings flavours of the Eastern Mediterranean to diners “in a progressively designed space.”

The $15 million penthouse suite that hit the market yesterday is the most expensive pre-construction condo unit ever sold in Mississauga, according to developer Camrost Felcorp Inc.
