For many people, Thanksgiving is a special occasion when family and friends get together to celebrate. Often that means a home-cooked meal that’s more like a feast, and turkey is a traditional choice. For those getting ready for the weekend, it’s now time to thaw out that turkey and get prepared. Fortunately, residents of Downtown Erin Mills Condominiums in Mississauga will always be in an excellent location to make the most of harvest holidays.
The two-tower community by Pemberton Group will house 198 suites in total, priced from the $300,000s. Suites are available in one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den and three-bedroom layouts.
Downtown Erin Mills will have its own two-storey, 17,000 square foot Recreation Centre with first-rate fitness and entertaining amenities – including two party rooms with a bar, and a dining rooming with a kitchen.
