Mississauga stands out from the crowd

Mississauga stands 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.

In Conversation With Brian Sutherland, Director of Development, Argo Development Corp.

There’s something big happening in Mississauga, specifically in the Lakeview area of Port Credit.

Perhaps you’re familiar with Lakeview, the former location of the Lakeview Generation Station, demolished in 2007. Or maybe you’ve been following the development plans for this prized, expansive lakefront location.

More likely, if you’ve driven by the area recently, is that you’ve noticed some new activity on the site – notably a striking, 1,600-ft. hoarding featuring the works of local artists. It’s an immediately noticeable sign that things are on the move for this development, and that soon, Lakeview Village, eventually comprising 8,000 new homes and 20,000 residents, will come to life.

Brian Sutherland, director of development for Argo Development Corp., the lead developer for Lakeview Village, discusses the plans for the transformation of Mississauga’s waterfront into Canada’s most innovative and sustainable mixed-use community.

And we have to say, impressive doesn’t do it justice.

The recent unveiling of the art installation is a significant step for Lakeview Village – a symbol of what’s to come and a signal to area residents that things are on the move. Why was it so important to make such a noticeable statement, and involving local artists?

Creating a hub for arts and culture is deeply embedded in the vision of Lakeview Village. Through this artist collaboration, we created in partnership with Artscape Atelier, and launched a platform for artists during the construction process while laying the groundwork for the future community. Our team is very passionate about the concept of placemaking, and these bold, beautiful artistic works make the site a vibrant and enjoyable place for locals and visitors. And although our original plan did not anticipate a global pandemic, we felt even more dedicated to this project and the employment opportunities it presented for artists to earn income during this particularly difficult period.

The murals also significantly enhance our sunflower program: One million sunflowers have been planted next to the art installations and are set to bloom alongside the works in late August. This is the second year in a row for the sunflower program, and we’re excited to welcome people back to experience their impressive beauty.

What will be the next noticeable sign of activity? Your project timeline shows the Discover Centre opening in late 2020…

The Lakeview Village Discovery Centre will a be a modern, welcoming space where we will showcase the vision for the project and its exciting regional impact, as well as the work of our neighbours and partners, including the adjacent Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area. We also envision the Centre being a safe gathering place for the community that we can offer for activities and events throughout the construction phase. This exciting space will also serve as our future sales centre.

Implications of the pandemic have delayed our original plans to open the Discovery Centre by the end of this year. We’re now aiming to open its doors in the spring of next year.

The timeline also shows breaking ground in Q1 2021 for phase one… Is that still on track, and what will be included in phase one?

We still anticipate earthworks occurring in 2021. Our goal for the first phase is to start with excavations, followed by beginning to install key servicing infrastructure. These foundations will be key components to bringing the community to life.

What are the timelines for the other phases?

The project will be developed in multiple phases and our focus right now is on Phase 1. By 2025, we anticipate first occupancies occurring in our first phase blocks, which will be in sync with the completion and opening of the project’s many parks and the adjacent Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area. We are currently evaluating and advancing plans and timelines for future phases. We hope that businesses are drawn to Lakeview in the near future and we (in partnership with the City of Mississauga Economic Development Office) can start construction within the Lakeview Innovation District and establish this district in the early phase of development as well.

What is the breakdown of housing types, highrise versus mid- and lowrise, and the approximate timelines?

The 177-acre project will combine diverse high-quality housing options for all lifestyles and life stages. The council-endorsed master plan allocates approximately 60 per cent of residential builds to be midrise, 10 per cent townhouses and 30 per cent highrise, creating around 8,000 residential units.

As a true mixed-use community, residential areas will be integrated alongside retail, commercial and recreational areas. This will include almost two million sq. ft. of office and institutional space, plus thousands of sq. ft. in retail, hotel and educational spaces.

As for the timeline, we’re working with the City of Mississauga through our development approval process right now with hopes of securing planning approvals by the end of 2020, allowing us to begin detailed engineering design, earthworks and servicing in 2021. This will be a multiphased project with a buildout over 10 years or more.

When can prospective buyers expect to be able to actually purchase at Lakeview Village?

We are hopeful that the first phase of unit sales will go forward in fall 2021.

Lakeview Village’s homebuilding partners include Branthaven Homes and Greenpark Group. What other builders might be involved?

Lakeview Village’s development is led by Lakeview Community Partners Limited (LCPL), which is an unprecedented collaboration between five community builders, including TACC Construction Ltd, Greenpark Group, CCI Development Group, Branthaven Homes and Argo Development Corp. Each developer plays an important role in the project. I find it incredibly rewarding to work with true innovators and leaders in the industry on something as unique and exciting as Lakeview Village. We are seeking to create Canada’s most transformative mixed-use waterfront community, bringing new life to Mississauga and connecting residents to this portion of Lake Ontario for the first time in decades.

The list of amenities for this new community looks very impressive. What are the top highlights, in your view?

What we’re creating at Lakeview Village will rival the world’s most acclaimed waterfront developments. One thing that really jumps out at people when they visit the site or look at the plan is the pier. We have one of the longest piers on Lake Ontario in our development. It was created to bring coal to the power plant, but we’re going to reimagine it as a place for the community to gather and to draw tourism and events. It will be fully open to the public, and it’s something no other community can match.

We’re planning on delivering more than 67 acres of land back to the city through the waterfront park, the pier, cultural lands and space for employers across sectors. This is in addition to several new parks, more than three kilometres of waterfront trails, and connections to bordering parks in the surrounding regions. After years of being cut off from Lake Ontario, we want residents and visitors to be able to reconnect with the water and create an unparalleled urban waterfront experience.

Our commitment to reviving the natural landscape also includes the collaboration with Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). This includes restoring Serson Creek – an extensive project that will realign and restore the creek back to its original and natural location as part of the conservation area, revitalizing habitat for wildlife and nature in the region. We are also supporting CVC, which is building the Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area, a 64-acre coastal conservation area that attract both wildlife and fish species back into the rebuilt habitat. Another exciting and vital component of the project is the Lakeview Innovation District, which will be a new business corridor with a variety of employment, institutional and educational uses. The District presents the opportunity to bring 9,000 jobs and attract innovative companies to the region, creating a true mixed-use community with significant economic impact. The city of Mississauga has so much potential and we strongly believe this hub will attract top talent, new employers and innovation to the city’s already established business sector.

How will Lakeview Village pay homage to the Lakeview Generation Station, the decommissioned coal-fired power plant whose former site the community will be built on? The plant, with its smokestacks known locally as the “Four Sisters,” had been a part of the local history since the early 1960s…

This site has a rich and interesting history – something we very much respect and keep top of mind as we plan for the future of this community. The former power plant delivered electricity to the region, which helped facilitate the considerable growth of Mississauga and the Region of Peel over the past 60 years. But it also produced heavy pollution in the form of smog days and contributed to the disconnect between the community of Lakeview and their access to Lake Ontario. We’ve been given this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform this former polluting utilitarian site and make it a vibrant, sustainable place to live by the lake.

One of the most exciting outcomes of the plant’s demolition is that we were able to donate more than 200,000 tonnes of concrete from the former foundations of the power plant to the Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area being built next to our project. The former foundations of a polluting coal burning powerplant will forever be the foundation to a new coastal conservation area. This creates an incredible start to the revitalization of the waterfront in southeast Mississauga.

What would you like to say to potential buyers, who may be watching all this unfold, perhaps have lived in the area, and are looking to see what buying opportunities there might be coming at Lakeview Village?

To either future buyers, locals or people who have been following Lakeview’s story, I would say get excited and get vocal! Our team is incredibly enthusiastic and dedicated to the vision for Lakeview Village – an urban experience that will transform Mississauga’s waterfront into Canada’s most innovative and sustainable mixed-use community. It will be waterfront revitalization done right, and be a place to live, work, play, learn and enjoy.

We always encourage people who are interested in the project to use their voice, whether that’s to share their visit to the murals on social or connecting with local government representatives to share their thoughts and support for the future of this community.

TANU is a carefully shaped residence that speaks of quality and craftsmanship

TANU is a carefully shaped residence that speaks of quality and craftsmanship

Living in Port Credit is like being part of a small town but with all the perks of the big city. Just a 22-minute GO Train ride to downtown Toronto, Port Credit Village is a lakeside oasis full of small shops, intimate restaurants and historic charm. With Toronto and Mississauga continuously booming, it’s rare to find a place so close by that still possesses a strong sense of community and belonging to its guests and inhabitants. Residents say Port Credit is their forever home, and many generations of families live within blocks of one another.

Local developer, Edenshaw, has created a new address in Port Credit for those looking to join the village on the water with their bespoke condos and townhouses at TANU, a 15-storey residence on Park Street designed by award-wining architecture and design firms, IBI Group and TACT Design. The friendly, small-town ambiance of Port Credit inspires this carefully shaped residence that speaks of quality and craftsmanship. TANU also offers proximity to both Lake Ontario and the Credit River, lush parks and trails, and is just a five-minute walk to the GO Train, MiWay and the planned Hurontario LRT at the adjacent Mobility Hub.

What makes Port Credit so special? The picturesque waterfront has marinas, parks and trails that invite residents to walk, bike, run or stroll year-round. And despite its small-town character, Port Credit certainly isn’t sleepy. There are more than 60 restaurants offering fare from gourmet pizza and burritos to seafood and raw food. Known and respected as home to one of Canada’s most successful main streets, Port Credit boasts over 400 unique retail shops, boutiques, and services. This “Village on the Lake” is hailed as Mississauga’s premier cultural, entertainment, and culinary district due to its array of eateries and award-winning festivals and events.

While residents of Port Credit – and soon-to-be homeowners at TANU – can look forward to summers at the harbourfront patios and holiday shopping down Lakeshore Road in the winter, perhaps the most attractive quality of the township is the abiding sense of community one experiences from shopowners who know their customers by name, friendly neighbours walking their dogs, or the familiar running clubs coming down the trails. David McComb, Edenshaw’s CEO, is a long-time resident of Port Credit himself, and is dedicated to ensuring this exceptional community continues to flourish.

Can’t-miss Port Credit events this summer 2019:

  • Farmer’s Market – Saturdays from June to October 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.;
  • Mississauga Waterfront Festival – a free event including concerts and vendors June 14 to 16;
  • Paint the Town Red – massive Canada Day celebration, parade and fireworks on July 1;
  • 2019 Amacon Mississauga Rotary Ribfest – Port Credit Memorial Park – July 12 to 15;

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.

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.

You’ll also enjoy the convenience of weather protected bicycle storage, energy-saving motion detector lighting and a convenient water-efficient car wash station.

One of the most convenient aspects of Edenshaw Elevated is the ability to gain entry to all of TANU’s amenities simply by carrying your smartphone. An app loaded onto your phone will get you anywhere you want to go!

But TANU is more than cutting-edge convenience – it’s resource savings, too! From low-flow toilets, to water saving aerators on taps and shower heads, you’ll save on costs while helping protect precious water resources.

Separate hydro and water metering for each suite, ensures that you’ll pay only for the hydro you use. Energy efficient light bulbs (in-suite and throughout the building) consume significantly less energy than traditional bulbs and last a lot longer.

TANU will be a LEED certified candidate. It will also utilize ERV (an energy recovery ventilator system) that recovers heat and recuperates the energy trapped in moisture, which greatly improves the overall recovery efficiency. With tri-cycle sorters on every floor (garbage, recyclables and organic waste), residents can rest easy knowing they are doing their bit for the environment.

Undoubtedly, Edenshaw Elevated is adding incredible convenience and value to TANU. This, coupled with robust building amenities, will make TANU one of the best places to live in the GTA. Residents will have access to a fully-equipped fitness centre with facilities for cardio, yoga and Pilates, a gorgeous resident’s private dining room and lounge, a games room, stunning outdoor terrace and a welcoming lobby with 24-hour concierge services.

TANU’s Grand Opening is scheduled for Feb. 9, 2019. The public is invited to attend the Edenshaw Experience Centre, located at 72 Lakeshore Rd. E. in Port Credit. Here, you’ll be able to view a huge scale model of TANU, as well as the many floorplan configurations available and experience the beautiful finishes displayed in a variety of vignettes.

Come to the Grand Opening to learn more about this incredible condominium opportunity in Port Credit Village.

Edenshaw’s beautiful and unique new condominium offers a lakeside lifestyle like no other

Craft artistry and earth consciousness is the inspiration behind a new and uniquely beautiful condominium residence. TANU by Edenshaw is located in the Port Credit Village, where the harbour, river and nature combine with charming restaurants, cafes and shops to offer a lakeside lifestyle like no other. For people who yearn for life by the water, the elegant and beautiful spirit of TANU at the heart of Port Credit is a life-changing opportunity.

Imagine leaving your condo for a walk along the pier, or a coffee in a waterside café. Run along several lakeside trails that are accessible just outside your door. TANU has a picture-perfect location in Mississauga’s most desirable waterfront neighbourhood. Just steps from the Port Credit Village, a one-minute walk to the Port Credit GO Station (downtown Toronto is just 22 minutes away via GO), a four-minute drive to the QEW and fast connections to Toronto and the GTA, you can live here, play here and work anywhere in the city.

What a thrill to come home to a peaceful waterfront condominium in a community that has been labelled “Always On. Always Electric.” An oxymoron? Hardly. Port Credit Village is Mississauga’s playground where restaurants, bars and community events abound at your doorstep. Yet, its soft side as a lakefront community gives residents the best of both worlds.

Aside from lovely architecture that fits seamlessly into the existing community, TANU has building amenities that extend the living space beyond your own residence. A Fitness Centre that includes state-of-the-art cardio and weight training equipment as well as a private Yoga Studio. A Private Dining Room equipped with a bar and a catering kitchen. A beautiful outdoor Terrace with barbecues and alfresco dining area. A Theatre. A Billiards Room. A Guest Suite. WiFi in all amenity areas, as well as a loaded Business Centre, convenient Pet Spa and a Car Washing Stall are just some of the offerings you’ll discover at TANU. In addition, residents will enjoy access to a 24-hour concierge, the security and peace of mind of smart home technology, a dedicated delivery/parcel drop off area and other features that make life at TANU easy and convenient.

The suites at TANU have been designed to maximize space, light and outside area. The Park Collection showcases nine-foot ceiling heights, the Upper Park Collection boasts ten-foot ceilings, while the Penthouse Collection ceiling height soars to twelve feet! Large windows showcase their stunning views, making these suites absolutely magnificent. All suites are elegantly appointed with wide plank engineered hardwood flooring, modern Euro-style kitchens with two-tone cabinetry, pantries with pull-out drawers or linen cabinets, pot lighting, and gorgeous quartz countertops. European integrated refrigerator and dishwasher, as well as an Italian electric cooktop and wall oven, with an over the cooktop microwave, ensure that TANU’s kitchens are as functional and convenient as they are beautiful. Choose from one-, two- and three-bedroom designs, some with dens.

TANU is developed by renowned Edenshaw Developments, a company with a mandate to deliver mindful, responsible building. The company’s ability to envision and develop major urban communities combined with a grassroots commitment to the environment is setting a new standard in ethical building.

TANU will be open for sale later this fall offering a very rare lakeside lifestyle. Register now on the website to receive priority access.
