Condos near Square One in Mississauga are being built at a steady pace, contributing to a dynamic urban revolution for this west-end region. It’s anchored by the sizable Square One Shopping Centre, which features over 360 shops and services, including a selection of luxury retailers. Currently, it clocks in a Canada’s second largest retail hub.
As the shopping centre has expanded, so has the number of residential towers and office space, creating a self-contained hub with a distinctly downtown feel. Pedestrian access has been prioritized, along with the addition of greenspace and public art. The area has become a favourite among investors, along with a wide selection of end-users including students at the nearby Sheridan College, young professionals and families.
The neighbourhood is also close to the area’s main transit hub, connecting several regional bus routes, along with VIVA and GO systems. The upcoming Hurontario LRT, slated to be running by 2020, will provide rapid transit access as far north as Brampton and as far south as Lake Ontario. This is a great time to invest in property on or near the proposed LRT, like Keystone Condos.
Already a region that’s grown extensively, Mississauga is expected to increase by 12 percent by the year 2031, yet another reason investors are showing interest in this part of the GTA. It boasts a robust occupational sector, featuring over 55,000 businesses and 1,300 global firms. It also features the third largest FIRE cluster (Finance, Insurance and Real Estate businesses) in North America, making it just as ideal for work as it is for play.
