Lakeview Village is a mixed-use master plan that builds upon the principles of the City of Mississauga's next great waterfront community. Located at1300 Lakeshore Rd E, Mississauga. It will be developed by Greenpark Homes. Lakeview Village has total 7000-8000 units. Lakeview Village will breathe new life in Mississauga’s waterfront, reconnecting the community through a diverse mix of residential offerings, as well as institutional, cultural, office and retail spaces. Sustainability is the key foundation of the new community, both through its design, as well as the mix of uses, public spaces and diverse programming that will be implemented at Lakeview Village.
Lakeview Village aims to be the place for shopping, dining and entertainment in Lakeview Village. By focusing on non-national retail tenants and programming, Lakeview Square will attempt to play a unique role in the overall Mississauga retail landscape. Lakeview Square will also front on a man-made recreation pond where residents and visitors can rent kayaking and paddle sports equipment.
Adjacent to this vibrant downtown district is possibly the most unique and exciting portion of the proposal; Waterway Common - a linear urban park spanning the width of the development that features a man-made water channel as its centrepiece. The waterway will be a year-round public gathering place, and function as a skating rink in the winter.
In terms of employment, Lakeview Village is looking to attract innovative firms to the site. A string of offices in the 'Season Innovation Corridor' will look to offer flexible spaces for firms, with the potential for additional educational uses in the future. This will eventually lead to a possible 825,000 ft2 of employment space on the site.
Inspiration point is designed to be a tranquil waterfront park with a pier extending over 600 metres into Lake Ontario. The park will feature public art, cultural pop-ups and an open-air music venue ‘Coal Hill’.
The Marina and Ogden Green will serve as the residential anchors for the site. The Marina will focus more on high rise condo development with iconic architecture to add to the growing Mississauga skyline. Ogden Green will be a much more human-scaled neighbourhood comprising of townhomes and mid-rise buildings with a streetscape designed around mid-block pedestrian walkways and paths.
Finally, the plan puts emphasis on Lakeview Village’s integration with the existing community, specifically, the intersection at Lakeshore Road E. The gateway into Lakeview Village will be defined by a mixed-use landmark building of ‘world class architectural standard’ to give the right impression to those entering the neighbourhood.
The development will have access to two existing GO transit stations—Port Credit and Long Branch.
