Rogers Real Estate Development Ltd. and Urban Capital Property Group’s M City master-planned community has been in active planning for many years but has finally started construction in 2018. The 15-acre community will eventually consist of up to ten towers in the heart of downtown Mississauga at the southwest corner of Burnhamthorpe Rd. and Confederation Pkwy. The $1.5 billion real-estate development aligns with the city’s Downtown 21 Master Plan, which strives to create a more vibrant downtown core south of Square One Shopping Centre with public spaces, institutions, public transit, and intensified residential and commercial developments.
M City held its official groundbreaking in May of this year, with company executives, councillors, and even the Mayor of Mississauga, Bonnie Crombie, at the site to celebrate the momentous occasion.
Construction has begun on the first and second phases of M City. The first phase of construction is currently underway and involves excavation of the buildings’ underground levels and pouring the concrete foundation and footings. In addition, establishing the foundation for the building crane and its setup are to be done.
The first and second towers both rise 60 storeys tall with a geometric, serpentine design.
The third phase of M City, better known as M3, will be launching this fall to much acclaim and excitement. Its 80-storey design ambitiously strives to surpass the previous phases making it the tallest building in Mississauga and the one of the top five tallest in the GTA. It will house approximately 900 units with unit sizes ranging between 390 and 941 sq. ft. The project is tentatively set for completion in 2023 where residents can also take advantage of the Hurontario LRT expected to be complete in 2022.
Mississauga is expected to continue to grow in population, and M City has arrived with perfect timing. With construction progressing smoothly, it won’t be long before you see Mississauga’s skyline transformed by M City’s unique and iconic buildings.
