Amacon held its official ground breaking ceremony last week for Parkside Village, its urban community in the heart of Mississauga, signalling the start of construction on this gigantic project.
It’s the largest single project in Mississauga, and is ambitious to say the least.
Set to be Mississauga’s first Urban Village, Parkside Village will be the total package, with parks, retail storefronts and over 6000 new condo homes just a small example of what it has to offer.
Amacon has very strong ties to the area which have been built up over their 45 years in the development and construction industry. The success of previous Mississauga based high rises such asEve Condominiums [map] and the soon to be occupied Elle Condominiums [map] speaks to their level of quality.
Marcello DeCotis, president of Amacon, noted the coincidence of the official ground breaking falling on a day of rain.
Ok you caught us, we love quotes like this…it shows real heart and passion for the project!
Sales in the first block within the village started just over a year ago resulting in over 95% of the first tower being sold, allowing Amacon to release its second tower, theGrand Residences [map],which features a 45 storey point tower with shared amenities to the first tower. We love that they’re so into sharing!
There are over fifty thousand square feet of amenities to enjoy, including a pool, show kitchen, guest suites, 24 hour concierge, outdoor living area, fitness centre, games area, and theatre room. How cool is that? 50,000 sq. ft!
The second tower suites are currently being offered for sale at the Parkside Village Presentation Centre located at465 Burnamthorpe Road West, just east of Confederation Parkway.
