“Lakeview Village will transform 177 acres of former industrial lands into a vibrant waterfront destination that will serve as a global model for sustainable mixed-use development.”
To keep it short…
This project is set to break ground after April 2021. The Lakeview Village project was already awarded Best New Community (Planned/Under Development) at the 39th annual BILD Awards.
The project will be developed on the site of the decommissioned Lakeview coal-fired power plant, creating a model for sustainable mixed-use development.
The 177-acre project will include thousands of residential units, from mid-rise to taller buildings, up to 9,000 long term new job opportunities, more than 800,000 square feet of employment space, over 100,000 square feet of retail space, economically sustainable and it will have activities for all 4 seasons! Whether that be food and beverages opinions, treats, coffee, retail or a boat rental.
For those of you that don’t know, there are plans in place to demolish Dixie Outlet Mall and replace it with a mix of uses including:
Enhanced Green Space: gardens, courtyards, a dog park, a natural creek, water features and a playground
Active Transportation: multi-use trails, improved bus access and safer crossings
Sustainable Design: low impact design, access to nature, green buffers and public art
Shops, Services and Amenities: fitness & health facilities, retail square, local retail, restaurants & patios and grocery store
A variety of housing: rental, affordable, live/work, housing for downsizers and housing for families
In the most recent “Open House” in December 2020 these plans to rezone this small space will accommodate 6,400 mixed residential units, including 17 high rise buildings. This will be a first for Mississauga development. The plans propose to increase the neighbourhood population by 12,000-15,000 people.
