PHOTOS: Two new office buildings have just taken shape in Mississauga


While Mississauga is home to a lot of new residential towers (with more expected to break ground in the coming months and years), we tend to hear about commercial construction a little less frequently. 

Now, those who call for more commercial space might be happy to hear that Ware Malcomb, an international design firm, recently completed construction on two new buildings at the Mississauga Gateway Centre (which is located in the Courtney Park and Hurontario area).

The company said it completed an office complex offering both retail and office leasing opportunities. 

Built on a 9.43-acre site, the two new five and four-storey buildings are located at 2 and 8 Prologis Boulevard and total 21,048 square meters. 

The project was designed for Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) and the complex offers leasable build-to-suit space for office tenants.

The company said the buildings are conjoined by a two-storey entrance plaza that provides common areas and a coffee kiosk. 

"The entrance plaza also features a green roof and green wall, adding to its sustainability features. Curtain wall and aluminium composite panels were used on the exterior. The buildings have achieved LEED CS Gold Certification," the company said in a news release. 

In 2014, Ware Malcomb provided architectural design services for the first buildings at Mississauga Gateway Centre: a five-storey, 13,935 square meter office building and a separate single-storey, 4,181 square meter office building. 

Since then the complex has grown to include seven buildings totalling approximately 59,458 square meters of office space.

"Ware Malcomb has a long history with Mississauga Gateway Centre, and it is exciting to see it continue to grow as a premier destination for office and retail tenants alike," said Frank Di Roma, principal of Ware Malcomb's Canada operations, in a statement. 

"This latest addition provides a striking new environment for a range of businesses."
