Mississauga neighbourhood mall could be replaced with four tower-units
In case a new development gets approved, the busy part of Mississauga’s Cooksville neighbourhood would look exclusively different.
There is a possibility that Centre City Place could be knocked down. The office complex located at 3085 Hurontario St., could also be knocked down. The structures could be transformed into a four-tower, over 1,000-unit mixed-use development, upon approval of the city.
Equity Three Holdings proposes the change, which consists of nine, 30, 33, and 35-storey apartment towers with ground-floor commercial space. Currently, there are medical offices, several restaurants and a grocery store Al Nejmah Fine Foods inside the mall.
The suggested changes in the site are designated by city planners to be in the centre of Mississauga, which is the urban growth centre. However, the project yet requires several major and minor changes to the city development plan and to city zoning for the plan to be approved.
There is currently a maximum height limit of 25 storeys in the area and at least one parking space must be provided per unit, according to city regulations. According to city regulations, the developer is proposing to eliminate over 600 parking spaces.
