Mississauga rising

Centre of pic: the excavation for M3, one of the tallest suburban towers in North America @ 260m, M1 and M2 (198m - 60s) rising behind.

M1 and M2

UT

Joining the fun will be Oxford’s 37-tower mixed-use development (130 acres) surrounding the Square One Shopping Mall built in1972, and Camrost’s Exchange District (232m, 201m, 136m, 96m) underway.

Exchange District

UT

M3 beside the proposed M4 tower (centre of render).

UT

Oxford - I think these 2 towers are the approved first phase.

^ I actually like the Phase 1 Oxford towers the best of the bunch. Still, an impressive amount of development for Mississauga. Once this is all done, it will be a mid-to-large-size North American city skyline on it's own.

Yes it's rather mind-boggling that a suburb that previously was basically a shopping centre surrounded by thousands of homes sprawling to infinity, will eventually be home to dozens of scrapers unrivalled by most NA cities.
The mega-Oxford development is easily the most important as it will bring the first "real urbanism" to Missie, as opposed to the many tower/podiums scattered about.

We sometimes forget that the south-eastern edge of the city is on the lake, another area under-going enormous change like this:

Port Credit’s Bright Water - approved and proposed elements of the $2-billion (3,000-residential-unit project),
include sixty seven acres of land to the city for parks, open space, cultural, and institutional uses.

As the mid-town Yonge and Eglinton cluster continues to climb, I’m losing track of the huge developments proposed farther east on Eglinton (Crosstown Community and FREED posted earlier). Here’s another:

2200 Eglinton Avenue East by Quadrangle for Dream (tallest is 150m - 46, 44, 39, 37, 36, 30, 30, 20 storeys) - proposed

The mega $3.8 Billion (37 tower) Oxford development is easily the most important Missie development as it tries to bring some of the first "real urbanism" to these burbs, as opposed to all the tower/podiums scattered about (nice curvy ones though).

Oxford's development

^^ Most folks like the building’s unique form, but many despise the 2 “mouths” on the east and west elevations.

Apparently this design element was inspired by a “fake news” public figure.

I remember when City Hall got built. It got a lot of favorable coverage in the news and magazines. Definitely one of those buildings that peaked my curiosity of architecture.

Yeah the two towers of Revell's curvy "embrace" put the city on the map (followed by CN of course). They recently installed a new TORONTO sign in the square (a much copied idea in the country now), which features cool themed wraps around the letters.

Old City Hall behind.

Thank you sir. Nice to hear.
