Our waterfront is more than a shoreline - it's a community.
The City has been exploring opportunities on the Mississauga waterfront at 1 Port Street East, owned by Canada Lands Company, and 70 Mississauga Road South, owned by Imperial.
The City has created plans blending the needs and interests of the community, the landowners and the City. There are unique opportunities at these waterfront sites to create vibrant, inspiring places where people will choose to be. We need to set the right priorities now for the future.
Future of 1 Port Street East - City Master Plan
Planning for 1 Port Street East Moves Forward
On May 30, 2016, the Planning and Development Committee recommended approval of the City's Master Plan for 1 Port Street East. This recommendation was approved by Council on June 8, 2016.
Key components of Master Plan:
- Creates a vibrant place for all as a destination and place to live, work, shop, make and play on the water
- Protects for the future of a working marina on site
- Generates jobs including office jobs
- Establishes a framework for iconic architecture and public spaces
In addition to approving the Master Plan, Council also agreed to the release of a Draft Official Plan Amendment (OPA) for circulation and public comment. A Draft Official Plan Amendment is required to implement the Master Plan.
A Public Meeting was held on September 6, 2016 to hear comments from the community, landowners, and stakeholders on the Draft Official Plan Amendment. View the public notice of this meeting, the meeting agenda, and the meeting minutes. All comments received before the meeting, at the meeting, and following the September 6 meeting of the Planning and Development Committee (PDC) will be documented in our "report on comments" to PDC when we ask them to address the OPA (tentatively in October). PDC will not address the OPA until the City has an agreement with CLC to protect for the continued use of a portion of the site and harbour for a marina.
We encourage you to continue to provide comments on the Draft Official Plan Amendment to the City.
Development rights will be released for the site when the City and CLC conclude on an agreement to protect for a future marina use on site.
Update - Imperial Lands at 70 Mississauga Road South
On December 7, 2015, the Planning and Development Committee recommended approval of the Framework for 70 Mississauga Road South. This was endorsed by Council resolution on December 9, 2015. Imperial has also expressed their support for the Framework, in a December 4, 2015 letter to the Mayor and Members of Council. The Framework will guide the development of the Master Plan for the site to be completed by the purchaser. In a statement released on February 17, 2016, Imperial announced three organizations who will be invited to submit proposals for the purchase, remediation and redevelopment of the site.
