Two condo towers and new LCBO announced for brand new neighbourhood in Mississauga


Published September 14, 2020 at 4:14 pm


Two new condos and a commercial building with an LCBO are coming to Mississauga.

The new buildings are part of the ambitious Brightwater development, a waterfront project that’s currently taking shape at a 72-acre site in the Lakeshore Rd. W. and Mississauga Rd. area.

Port Credit West Village Partners (PCWVP), a team comprised of the Kilmer Group, DiamondCorp, Dream Unlimited and FRAM + Slokker, recently shared more information about Brightwater I and Brightwater II, two buildings that will offer a combined 310 residential units. 

The new buildings will make up part of the overall Brightwater community, a development that will feature 2,995 condo and townhouse units, 150 affordable housing units, 300,000 square feet of retail space, restaurants, office space, a new elementary school and a proposed community centre.

The development will also feature 18 acres of new green spaces, including a new nine-acre waterfront park.

According to PCWVP, Brightwater 1 will be a five-storey boutique building with retail space on the ground floor. It will boast 75 suites offered in one and two-bedroom layouts. The building will look out at Port Credit’s pedestrian-oriented main street and “offer a modern village aesthetic while paying homage to the heritage charm of Port Credit.”

Brightwater II is a 14-storey residential mixed-use building with 235 suites, offered in one, two and three-bedroom layouts. It will also offer a series of two-storey townhomes at the base.

Prices start in the low $400,000s.

Brightwater I and Brightwater II, both designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects (DSA), are the first phase to be released from the master-planned community and include both residential suites and ground-level retail spaces.

According to PCWVP, the condos and commercial building will be connected by the expansive Brightwater Village Square, an outdoor area framed by trees and seating that can host anything from local farmers’ markets to pop-up celebrations.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming Brightwater to Mississauga’s waterfront. Brightwater will help redevelop and reanimate our waterfront into a hub for innovation, culture and tourism,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie in a statement. 

“Most importantly, it will bring 150 much-needed affordable housing units to the Port Credit community. I look forward to seeing these former brownfield lands revitalized into a vibrant waterfront destination that will attract residents from Mississauga and beyond.”

Designed by Truong Ly Design, Brightwater I and II’s lobbies will feature architectural wood structures that mimic the movement of water, with details carved of natural stones.

As far as amenities go, the condos will boast an attractive co-working space that opens onto a landscaped terrace, a state-of-the-art fitness studio, modular party spaces and more. PCWVP also says that residents of both Brightwater I and Brightwater II will benefit from smart home technology features such as a virtual concierge, unlimited internet data, master lighting control, Wi-Fi through amenity spaces, keyless entry, programmable thermostats, a community app, and more.

The commercial building, which will be anchored by an LCBO and feature a “modern grocer”, will be designed by Turner Fleischer architects. 

The neighbourhood will be a uniquely urban addition to a city that’s trying to grow from a car-centric bedroom community to a walkable, world-class municipality. PCWVP says that with walking and cycling promenades, pedestrian mews and public plazas that weave throughout the site, Brightwater–inspired by European promenades and coastal villages like the Hamptons–will create new urban connections to the waterfront and the rest of Port Credit.

“When we started our work on Brightwater more than five years ago, we were so motivated by our vision of what the future of Port Credit Village and the waterfront could be,” said Bob Blazevski, President and COO of DiamondCorp, in a statement. 

“We have assembled an exceptional team of top talent across real estate, architecture, design and planning. We put our heads together to push the boundaries within our fields. The result is a world-class community and that will be a legacy for generations to come.”
