Waterfront living is highly coveted in the GTA, but some lakeside districts are still a bit unpolished. Mississauga’s “Inspiration Lakeview” plan for 99 hectares of former industrial land aims to revitalize the area surrounding the former site of the Ontario Power Generation station in the southeast.
Bordering the site, the Anchors at Lakeview will be among the first condo projects to help re-animate the area. Dunsire Developments and Fortress Real Developments are behind the development, which will rise from 1041 Lakeshore Road East. Made up of 90 condos and townhomes, new residents will be at the forefront of the newer, greener district.
The Government of Canada is even on board and has given the city a $175,000 grant from the Green Municipal Fund to help kickstart the transformation.
Among the many ideas proposed for the former industrial site, landscaped canals were suggested as a way to help manage the community’s stormwater while providing year-round recreational opportunities. Dedicated pedestrian and bicycle lanes would also connect residents to the water and help create a walkable community.
The city is currently spearheading consultations and community workshops to help create a masterplan for the area. Though it’s still early days, it’s clear that the space will involve plenty of park space and opportunities for recreational activities.
Dunsire is committed to seeing Lakeview get the boost it deserves and has invested in an additional area project, the Barca Verde, on nearby Haig Boulevard. The condo is scheduled to launch this fall.
When you call Anchors at Lakeview home, you’ll be down the street from a whole host of new amenities and will get to witness the massive transformation firsthand.
Beyond the revitalization, the project’s location in Mississauga puts it close to Toronto while remaining much more affordable than the big city. Enjoy nearby established neighbourhoods such as the charming, historic Port Credit community and the eclectic, up-and-coming Mimico neighbourhood.
Residences will range from 600 to 1,540 square feet and start from the mid-$200,000s.
