Just a short distance from Mississauga’s City Centre is the sought-after community of Erin Mills. What was once thousands of acres of farmland has now become one of the most populous areas in the city and a vibrant urban centre itself.
Soon to rise in the heart of this growing region is Downtown Erin Mills Condominiums by Pemberton Group. Located on the corner of Eglinton Avenue West and Metcalfe Avenue, this master-planned community will consist of two towers surrounded by manicured gardens and natural green space. It’s ideal location means residents will be at the heart of Erin Mills, close to the many existing shops, services, and amenities the area offers.
