Unique Mississauga condo project in old neighbourhood will include park, heritage homes

A proposal to build a 23-storey condo on a block of land in Mississauga will include the creation of a park as well as save two heritage homes.
The project, earmarked for Port Credit, incorporates land that was formerly a lawn bowling club as well as two homes in the parcel of land enclosed by Hurontario St., High St., Park St. and Ann St. While the project calls for the removal of two of the homes, it also intends to save two heritage houses that front onto High St.
The proposal went before the City of Mississauga’s planning committee recently. The project is still in the planning stage and final approvals have not been given.
According to plans presented at the meeting, the condo will feature 359 units as well as a ground floor commercial area.
The concept for the building incorporates a unique architectural design that the builders believe will give the neighbourhood a distinct look that will fit in well with surrounding high-rise structures and the LRT that will run along Hurontario.
Two heritage homes will be saved as part of the proposal
Mississauga Ward 1 Councillor Stephen Dasko told the meeting the project design so far is meeting expectations, although he said some improvements to areas such as parking are needed.
“I truly believe this will be a great gateway into Port Credit,” said Dasko adding that saving the heritage homes is also key to the project.
The report indicates the heritage buildings will remain, one will continue as a residence and the other turned into commercial use.
The proposal will now be studied by Mississauga planning staff who will recommend to council the merits of the project and how it will proceed.
