The Mississauga waterfront is about to get a massive facelift.
The 177-acre mixed-use community called “Lakeview Village Mississauga” will connect residents to nature and the waterfront of Lake Ontario.
Just west of Toronto, developers in Mississauga are preparing for construction along the border of Lake Ontario. The multi-billion-dollar project, Lakeview Village, will focus on cultivating a mixed-use space with an emphasis on lifestyle, jobs & innovation, nature, and mobility.
The project promises up to 8,000 living units capable of housing up to 20,000 residents in the mixed-use space. These residencies will be situated among a large network of parks and green space. Among the over 40 acres of green space to be added, Lakeview Village also imagines a 3.5 km walkable waterfront Trail that acts as a gateway between Port Credit and Downtown, Toronto.
In the heart of the village will be Lakeview Square. The square will be the end of a “green river” called Ogden Park. Located at the foot of two condominiums, the square will feature an open-air market and flexible gathering space. Farmers markets, musical events, pop-ups, and festivals are just some of the many events to take place in Lakeview Square.
As with the trail, the rest of the community will be largely walkable. The design of Lakeview Village is intended to make the area as pedestrian friendly as possible. One specific design feature, is the plan to have wide sidewalks. Additionally, Lakeview Village will offer bike lanes, metro rail, and a potential autonomous vehicle route.
Additional amenities include a school, cultural and performance centre, revitalized pier, and many shops, cafes, and restaurants. Not to mention the potential water-based activities like kayaking, canoeing, and paddleboarding.
While there hasn’t been mention of a specific completion date, the developers expect for the project to take from 10 – 15 years.
