A massive project to build 685 townhomes and 27 homes is moving forward in Mississauga.

The Mattamy Homes subdivision development along the westside Ninth Line, south of Derry Road, in the west end of the city, has been in the works for many years.

“This has been a labour of love for me,” said Ward 10 Councillor Sue McFadden during the Planning and Development committee meeting where the project was approved on Dec. 11.

McFadden thanked Mattamy for their patience on the project, and added she fully supported the application.

“We only had one kick at the can here and I think we did get right,” she said.

Since a public meeting in 2019, Mattamy made several changes to the application including revising the road network plan, adding a block for a school and revising setbacks. A second community meeting was held on June 21, 2023.

The vacant property is about 80 acres and Mattamy Homes plans to build 685 townhomes and 27 homes first, said Matthew Shilton, a City of Mississauga planner, during the Planning and Development committee meeting on Dec. 11.

There are also future plans for apartment buildings, which were not in the application considered this week, Shilton added. The entire development could have from.1,260 to 1,360 units when complete.

The plan includes three parks along with a mix of public and private roads in the new subdivision.

The townhouses are to be a mix of condo and freehold, some with private yards and parking. The 27 detached homes will come in a variety of styles.

One of the remaining community concerns was that Ninth Line cannot accommodate the current traffic volumes and the proposed development will increase traffic further, McFadden noted.

Ninth Line will be widened starting in 2024 to deal with increased congestion in area, she said.
