Mississauga – 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.

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 as a mill town. And Port Credit’s Mississauga Waterfront Festival and the Southside Shuffle blues and jazz festival display everything that the 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.

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.

Waterfront recreation

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 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.

SkyTower at Pinnacle One Yonge

Pinnacle raises the bar at SkyTower at Pinnacle One Yonge – a legendary address

Pinnacle raises the bar at SkyTower at Pinnacle One Yonge – a legendary address

The wait is nearly over for those hoping to make Pinnacle One Yonge their new residential address. Coming soon, Pinnacle International‘s striking new 95-storey development, now in pre-construction, will rise up from the very heart of downtown Toronto at the foot of Yonge Street – where the storied thoroughfare meets the lake.

The impressive project and the tallest residential building in Canada, with its 2,500 condominium homes, will pump even more life and excitement into this desirable area. Pinnacle One Yonge’s 4.4-million sq. ft. community with 1.5 million sq. ft. of office, 160,000 sq. ft. of retail space, and a 250-room hotel with meeting spaces and a ballroom will certainly strengthen the pulse of this iconic waterfront neighbourhood. Plans further include 2.5 acres of park space, and 50,000 sq. ft. of community centre. This famous address will have everything a sophisticated urbanite could desire.

Transit arteries will run directly from the landmark location to a PATH connection and a variety of travel options, awarding SkyTower at Pinnacle One Yonge a Transit Score of 100 out of 100. And with some of the city’s finest cultural offerings within walking distance, SkyTower will be the most perfectly located community in the city.

This bold and progressive vision by Pinnacle International will draw residents who want the ultimate lifestyle with every transit option, major sports venues and the entire financial and entertainment districts right outside their door. It’s a landmark address for a true landmark building.

“There’s an importance to this site,” notes Pinnacle’s Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, Anson Kwok. “We appreciate the history of the location and so we wanted to embrace it. As a result, we’ve worked with the city for seven years to ensure that we could plan something really special for Pinnacle One Yonge.”

That measure of planning has paid off, as the design of Pinnacle One Yonge is as extraordinary as its location.

The impact of SkyTower, springing up 95 storeys from the ground, will be to transform Toronto’s skyline, providing unparalleled views for its residents and earning the distinction of being the country’s tallest residential tower at more than 1,000 ft. high.

As designed by architects Hariri Pontarini Architect, the curved structure won’t just impress from the outside. The elegantly appointed lobby will feature a 24-hour concierge and suites will have impeccable finishes with functional and creative layouts.

SkyTower’s suite design will be second to none. In addition to the breathtaking views that are unmatched in the country, the suites will be bright and airy. Elegant and distinctive interior features include custom kitchen cabinetry, sleek integrated appliances, smooth ceilings, and wide plank laminate flooring.

Living this large is worth sharing with friends and family, and SkyTower’s chic kitchen design affords residents the space and aesthetic to entertain in style. The custom kitchen cabinetry is sleek and smartly designed for maximum storage. And with the track lighting and under-cabinet lighting, concealed hood fan, brand name appliances, quartz countertops and backsplashes, and pull-out pantry, prepping meals will be an inspired event.

Pinnacle understands that active residents want more than simple comfort and the chance to entertain. Today’s discerning homebuyer expects an amenities package that accommodates their healthy, active lifestyle.

“We’re standing behind Pinnacle One Yonge being more than just luxury buildings,” says Kwok. “In addition to the large units and phenomenal views, residents will enjoy a community that one would expect for modern conveniences.”

Pinnacle has indeed delivered on that promise, as SkyTower will feature not just an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, but a serene yoga room, a terrace with barbecue facilities, a games room and a designer-decorated party room with a kitchenette.

True to its word, the developer has recognized the value and potential of the surrounding land, envisioning a build that is both community-oriented and forward-thinking.

Future developments also include Pinnacle’s commitment to designing 2.5 acres of public-access green park space.

Says Kwok, “One of the things that defines Pinnacle, and the Pinnacle One Yonge project in particular, is our ability to locate and build upon huge parcels of land. We like to work on large-scale projects: Mixed-use communities that enhance not just the residential sector but address the greater community needs as well.”

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.

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.
