Mississauga Plans an Exciting Gateway to the Lake

An untapped stretch of the waterfront becomes a thriving community by architecture firm Sasaki

By Sara Cunningham


Lakeview Community Partners has tapped Boston architecture firm Sasaki – whose credits include the Riverwalk in Chicago and 798 Arts District in Beijing – to design a sustainable mixed-use neighbourhood on Mississauga’s waterfront. The 177-acre redevelopment, dubbed Lakeview Village, sits on the site of a former coal factory. “It’s rare to find a project of this size and scope anywhere in the world,” says Sasaki principal Dennis Pieprz. In fact, when completed, the community will house up to 17,000 people. Residents will have access to abundant retail, office and outdoor space, including – early renderings show – a waterway. The design is still being refined, but one thing’s for sure: Lake Ontario is going to feel a lot closer to home.
