Mississauga is standing out from the crowd

Mississauga is standing out from the crowd

Mississauga has always been a city of noteworthy accomplishments, from its inception as a city in 1974 combining the former townships of Lakeview, Cooksville, Lorne Park, Clarkson, Erindale, Sheridan, Dixie, Meadowvale Village, Malton, Port Credit and Streetsville; to being home to Canada’s longest-serving mayor, Hazel McCallion, from 1978 to 2014.

And now, literally at the time of writing, the City was hosting a Town Hall on seeking independence from the Region of Peel.

You might expect such a track record of ambition from one of the most populous – and fastest-growing – municipalities in Canada.

Covering a huge swath of land – 288 square kms, 13 km of which front Lake Ontario – Mississauga comprises many distinct neighbourhoods and communities. The former town of Port Credit, for example, once a sleepy little industrial locale, home to the iconic – and smelly – St. Lawrence Starch Co. plant from 1890 to 1990, today is a much sought-after residential area, thanks to its prized waterfront location.

Local histories

Many of these areas host annual festivals that pay respect to local histories. Streetsville, for example, holds its annual Bread and Honey Festival, paying homage to the area’s roots a mill town. And Port Credit’s Mississauga Waterfront Festival and the Southside Shuffle blues and jazz festival display everything that community has to offer.

With McCallion running the show over 12 consecutive terms, until she stepped aside and Bonnie Crombie won the election in 2014, Mississauga was known as a city of growth. McCallion consistently boasted she oversaw among the lowest taxes in Canada and made it easy for companies to do business there. Today, the area is home to more than 60 Fortune 500 companies, including Laura Secord Chocolates, Honeywell Aerospace, Walmart Canada and Kellogg’s Canada.

Succession

As for seeking its independence from Peel, Crombie’s office points to the following as motivation:

Population: Mississauga has the population to warrant becoming an independent city similar to other large municipalities such as Toronto, Hamilton and Ottawa.

Stability: Mississauga is fiscally strong, has strong resident support and has the necessary capacity and experience to operate as an independent city.

Municipal service: A number of duplications, barriers and complexities in municipal service delivery could be eliminated if Mississauga became an independent city.

Future city building: As an independent City, Mississauga would have full autonomy to focus on City initiatives related to its future growth and development.

Cost: Mississauga pays 60 per cent of the overall property tax levy, yet owns only 29 per cent of regional roads.

Getting around Mississauga is, well, you are travelling over a vast area, and traffic these days… But Hwys 401, 403, 410 and the QEW all run for stretches through the city, and there’s no shortage of GO Transit and Mississauga MiWay Transit options.

For sports and recreation, again Mississauga is blessed with numerous recreational winter and summer sports leagues with decades of local history. Using the Streetsville example again, the Vic Johnston Community Centre dates back to 1961, and sits adjacent to Memorial Park and the Credit River.

And, following the Credit River down to well, Port Credit, Memorial Arena is another beautiful old barn, sitting adjacent to Memorial Park and facing Lake Ontario. The park itself serves as host location for some of the area’s largest festivals.

Then there’s the Paramount Fine Foods Centre (formerly Hershey Centre), where the Ontario Hockey League’s Mississauga Steelheads play, and which also is home to a number of community rinks.

The future is now in Brampton

The future is now in Brampton

The future is now in Brampton

It’s one thing for a neighbourhood to be in transition, quite another for an entire city. But that’s precisely what’s happening in Brampton, where a concerted effort to bring the municipality into the future now, is yielding visible results.

In a city of about 600,000 – the third largest in the GTA and the ninth largest in Canada – Brampton has been booming for years. Consider, for example that current population is almost double what it was not even 20 years ago.

What’s attracting newcomers to Brampton in such numbers? In short – economic growth. Indeed, with major companies such as Loblaw Companies Ltd., Canadian Tire Corp., Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Ltd. and Rogers Communications Inc. having headquarters in the city, employment opportunities have been plentiful. Brampton’s economy in recent years has diversified to include sectors such as communications technologies, life sciences and business services.

Cybersecure catalyst

And even more recently, education. Just last month, for example, the City confirmed a collaboration with Ryerson University, outlining the required funding and resources needed for establishing the Ryerson University-led Innovation Hub and Cybersecure Catalyst in downtown Brampton. This includes the Chang School of Continuing Education expanding its cybersecurity courses; launching the Brampton Incubation/Innovation Hub; and the Cybersecure Catalyst, a new national centre for innovation and collaboration in cybersecurity.

“This is a very exciting move forward for Brampton, moving important projects with Ryerson University closer to reality,” says Mayor Patrick Brown. “These projects will help spur economic growth, create jobs and position Brampton as a hub for cybersecurity.”

Managing such growth requires planning, including the City’s Vision 2040, a long-term vision to reinvent Brampton. The plan includes such key transformations as including model new neighbourhoods; an improved transit network, new core loop, walking and cycling networks; better designed communities, handsome buildings; and sustainability built into everything.

Budgeting growth

Brampton’s 2019-21 budget proposal includes initiatives to that end, including increasing Brampton Transit’s fleet by 16 per cent over three years, adding 46 conventional buses and 25 Zum buses; creating a new Marketing and Foreign Direct Investment Program; and a Community Improvement Program to incentivize the economic sectors identified in Brampton’s Economic Development Master Plan.

It’s not all about business in Brampton, however. Proximity to nature also helps deliver quality of life in the city. Gage Park, Brampton’s oldest municipal park, opened in 1903; Heart Lake Conservation Area, occupying 169 hectares in the Etobicoke Creek watershed; and Chinguacousy Park, a 40-hectare park in the Bramalea section of town.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH: Toronto Entertainment District a condo community?

Toronto Entertainment District a booming condo community in the making

Latest News


Toronto Entertainment District a booming condo community in the making

If you haven’t been to Toronto’s Entertainment District lately, you’re in for quite the surprise.

In fact, you might not even recognize this booming neighbourhood.

Long a Toronto hot spot filled with some of the city’s best theatres and restaurants, the Entertainment District is in full-on transition mode – into also becoming one of the most prestigious condo destinations.

A place to live

The Entertainment District, a condo community?

Yes, that same area punctuated by such landmarks as Roy Thompson Hall, the Princess of Wales Theatre, and Canada’s Walk of Fame, known as a place to play and eat, is now becoming known as a place to live.

“Look around at all the buildings being built and how the neighbourhood is changing and will continue to change,” Alan Vihant, senior vice-president, highrise at Great Gulf recently told Condo Life at the ground-breaking for the company’s 357 King West project. Great Gulf’s 357 King West is a 42-storey condo at the corner of King St. W. and Blue Jays Way.

This development and population growth is now leading to other expansion. “It’s not just a place to live now,” Vihant says. “A lot of offices are moving here, the bars and restaurants continue to evolve. It’s a great time to be building down here.”

Essentially born in the 1990s as an entertainment and tourist hub, with a burgeoning nightclub scene elbowing its away among the existing theatres and restaurants, the early 2000s brought the first wave of a condo boom.

More recently, SoHo Metropolitan Hotel & Residences, Festival Tower, and Bisha Hotel and Residences are among some of the notable condo projects that are up and running.

Abuzz with excitement

One key cultural attraction is TIFF Bell Lightbox, which opened in 2010 on the northwest corner of King Street and John Street. The first five floors of this 42-storey tower serve as headquarters for the Toronto International Film Festival, while the Festival Tower residences sit atop. With TIFF Bell Lightbox serving as host to countless international stars and pre-screenings during the annual festival, the area is often abuzz with excitement.

Add to this more recent landmark developments such as Bisha Hotel and Residences, and Nobu Residences, and you have an expanding array of exciting residential opportunities.

Then there’s Wayne Gretzky’s Restaurant at 99 Blue Jays Way, and more recently even a Wahlburgers (of the Wahlburgers restaurant chain and famed brothers Donny and Mark Wahlburg). All of it a stone’s throw from the Rogers Centre, Ripley’s Aquarium, the CN Tower, Metro Toronto Convention Centre and Scotiabank Arena.

The team at Great Gulf breaking ground at 357 King West.

Transition to excellence

And more is on the way.

Great Gulf and Ed Mirvish Enterprises, for example, recently announced they have reached an agreement on the sale to Great Gulf of the site of the proposed landmark Mirvish+Gehry project in the Entertainment District.

All of it adds up to an area in transition indeed – to excitement and excellence.

First-time homebuyer loves his Daniels’ FirstHome

Chris Nobes was driving to work in Brampton and saw the sign for Daniels FirstHome Sunny Meadow, The Daniels Corporation’s newest community of fully-built condominium walk-up and back-to-back townhomes designed specifically for first-time homebuyers. He had heard about the community from a friend and decided to register.

“I had saved enough money to consider buying and I was happy to get an invitation to the Preview Event. Once I saw what Daniels was offering, I realized what a great opportunity it was.”

Chris Nobes
Chris Nobes

Situated at Sunny Meadow Boulevard and Sandalwood Parkway, Daniels FirstHome Sunny Meadow is close to where Nobes lives and only minutes to where he works as an IT coordinator in Mississauga. He already knows the area well and appreciates the community’s proximity to parks, schools, Professor’s Lake and quick access to Highway 410.

The turnout for the Preview Event was phenomenal, especially as Daniels pre-builds its FirstHome Communities before going on sale.

“I waited in line, and I have to say everyone was very nice, including the Daniels sales staff,” he says.

Nobes and the other registrants were able to tour a model of each design before deciding, plus buyers can move in within 60, 90 and 120 days. “It helped 100 per cent to walk through the models and to know for sure the space will work for what I want.”

Nobes fell in love with the one-bedroom model because of its open concept layout. “I got on the waiting list for it and when they called to say I could buy it, I answered ‘Let’s do this!’ ” he said.

Nobes is looking forward to moving into his home this summer. “It gives me time to get my finances in order and look around at furniture.”

He was also delighted with the care the Daniels team took in explaining everything about the home purchase to him. “They made it all clear, and without any pressure. They actually made buying easy.”

Daniels enables first-time buyers to purchase with only 5 per cent down. Through its unique Gradual Deposit Payment Plan, purchasers are required to pay only $3,000 with the Agreement of Purchase and Sale, another $3,000 within 10 days of the purchase and then $1,000 every month until they reach 5 per cent of the purchase price or final closing. Daniels also works with financial institutions to cap the mortgage rate, making qualifying for a mortgage more accessible, and helping to keep overall monthly carrying costs low.

Named the 2016 Ontario Highrise Builder of the Year at the Tarion Homeowners’ Choice Awards, The Daniels Corporation is one of Canada’s preeminent builder/developers, building more than 26,000 new homes across the GTA for over 34 years. Among its many initiatives, Daniels was chosen to partner with Toronto Community Housing to revitalize Regent Park, 69 acres in Toronto’s Downtown East. Committed to community, Daniels offers innovative programs that help people achieve homeownership, champions neighbourhood initiatives that enhance quality of life and supports numerous charities and non-profit organizations.

“We are thrilled to welcome George Brown College to Daniels Waterfront – City of the Arts,” said Martin Blake, vice president of The Daniels Corporation, which is developing this mixed-use, master-planned waterfront community in partnership with WJ Properties. “The expansion of their Waterfront Campus and their Innovation Exchange takes our partnership to a new level, serving the needs of the design, arts and digital media sectors, and enabling Torontonians to live, work, play, learn and create at Daniels Waterfront.”

George Brown College will be an integral new part of 130 Queens Quay East, which is Toronto’s first Waterfront office condominium located within Daniels Waterfront. 130 QQE will also be home to Artscape’s headquarters and their innovative “Launchpad” initiative, Colleges Ontario, OCAD University and RBC. Non-profit organizations The Remix Project and Manifesto will relocate there as well, along with The Daniels Corporation.

The array of local amenities is an obvious attraction as the first residential condominium, Lighthouse West Tower, is nearly sold out. “This spring, we will go on sale with Lighthouse East Tower,” says Dominic Tompa, Broker of Record for City Life Realty, a subsidiary of The Daniels Corporation. “The demand is phenomenal.”

Lighthouse East Tower will rise to 36 storeys at Queens Quay East and Richardson Street, with architecture designed to carve an iconic presence on the waterfront.

The community will also be home to The Yard, an outdoor courtyard offering shopping and dining venues, and Sugar Beach North — a tree-lined amenity space that will visually connect to Canada’s Sugar Beach, which is only steps away. With an incredible location directly across from Lake Ontario, and close proximity to the Water’s Edge Promenade, the downtown core, Union Station, and much more, Daniels Waterfront – City of the Arts boasts near-perfect walk, transit and bike scores.
