Video shows what Lakeview Village looks like now in Mississauga

A new drone video shows what Mississauga’s Lakeview Village development and the new conservation area look like now.

The two projects are still years away from completion.

Developers first submitted an application for Lakeview Village in October 2018. And in November 2021, City of Mississauga officials gave the conditional go-ahead for the huge waterfront community, which, when complete, will include 8,050 new homes.

The community will connect to the nearby 64-acre Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area, named for the late city councillor who worked to bring the project to fruition.

Marc Nashaat tells he shot video over Lakeview Village on March 4. Shot with a Mavic 3, the video pans over the future construction site, then over the Lakeview Wastewater Treatment plant, which is just north of the now under-construction Jim Tovey Conservation Area.

The 177-acre site was once home to the Lakeview Generating Station, which was shut down in 2005 and the iconic smokestacks known as “The Four Sisters” were demolished in 2007.

The first building for the project went up last April — the Discovery Centre will serve as a community hub, sales centre and gathering place for artists for the next 10 years as the community progresses.

Work on preparing the site for servicing, roads, infrastructure and parks started in 2022 and was expected to be completed sometime in 2023 so building construction can begin.

The construction will progress in phases and five development blocks have been earmarked for the first phase.

The entire project is expected to take 15 to 20 years to complete.

When completed, Lakeview Village will feature transit-connected housing, office space, retail, restaurants, trails, parks, greenspace and cultural and recreational amenities.

It will also have the longest pier on Lake Ontario.

The Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area will be open to the public much sooner — it is expected to be complete in 2025.

In 2022, two major parts of the conservation area were completed: the reconnection of Serson Creek with Lake Ontario and the opening of the first wetland to fish and other aquatic wildlife.
