The vision for the Port Credit West Village has moved closer to reality. At yesterday’s Planning and Development Committee, Council endorsed the proposed development of the former Imperial Oil Lands at 70 Mississauga Rd. S. and 181 Lakeshore Rd. W. The proposed redevelopment plan will go to Council for formal support on July 31.
The proposed multi-phase community includes 2,995 new residential units (townhomes, mid-rise and high-rise up to 29 storeys), retail, parkland and campus (employment, recreation and education) uses on the 72-acre property.
“I am pleased that we are moving forward with next steps to revitalize these former brownfield lands into a vibrant waterfront destination that will attract residents from Mississauga and beyond,”
said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “As an important City-building initiative, this redevelopment will drive tourism, create jobs and boost economic growth, helping put Mississauga on the international map. We will continue to work together to ensure our vision to transform the waterfront becomes a reality.”
“Working collaboratively with the residents and key stakeholders has created a vision for this dynamic addition to our waterfront. I look forward to continuing open dialogue as this development evolves and we have a waterfront for the entire City of Mississauga second to none,” said Ward 1 Councillor Stephen Dasko.
As next steps, City Staff will attend the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) hearing scheduled for August 7, when a final decision will be made. If LPAT approves the matter, construction is anticipated to start in 2020.
“Over the past several years we’ve engaged extensively with the community,” said Andrew Whittemore, Commissioner, Planning and Building. “The comments received from the public and key stakeholders have helped shape the vision for this dynamic addition to our waterfront. We will continue to engage with residents and ensure we have strong land use policies that align with our goal of creating an accessible and sustainable waterfront.”
