Longest Canadian pier in the Great Lakes coming to Mississauga

TORONTO – About 72 acres of land previously occupied by a coal-fired power plant in Mississauga will soon be home to the longest Canadian pier in the Great Lakes.

The pier will rise 600 feet into Lake Ontario and is part of Lakeview Village, which developers have designated as the “most transformative waterfront community” currently being built along its shores.

“This is the realization of the master plan’s vision and an embodiment of modern life by the lake,” Brian Sutherland, vice president of development, Argo Development Corporation and development manager for Lakeview Village, said in a press release. “This is a brand that celebrates our move towards reconnecting people to the waterfront for the first time in decades.”

The transformation will also see 8,050 new homes built, which will house up to 20,000 residents, developers said. Also included in the space are 1.8 million square feet of office space and 200,000 square feet of retail space.

Lakeview Village submitted its master plan in October 2018, saying it has been working with the city of Mississauga ever since to develop the space. That plan was approved by the Mississauga Planning and Development Committee on November 8 and ratified two days later by the Mississauga City Council.

This means that Lakeview Community Partners Limited (LCPL) can now proceed with the construction of the sea community, even though no completion date has been set for the project.
