By 2031 Mississauga’s population and employment is expected to increase to approximately 805,000 people and 510,000 jobs.
Lakeview is 99.148 hectares in size and is a varied neighbourhood that has been acknowledged for the power generating plant that once took up a great deal of its waterfront, until the plant shut its doors and the smokestacks were bulldozed in 2006.
It sits at the south-easternmost part of Mississauga, and is positioned along the northern shores of Lake Ontario. It simply runs forth to Cooksville Creek to the west, north to the (CNR) Canadian National Railway line and its eastern boundary sits at Etobicoke Creek.
The plan is to reinvigorate the area which has been spearheaded by its very own residents, who have realized the value of this prime waterfront location and its demand for a downtown strip or village centre of sorts for its inhabitants.
The revitalization project of the Lakeview waterfront, will encompass new residential condos, stacked homes and townhouses, cultural, institutional, office and retail spaces. This will enhance its populace to roughly 15,000-20,000 new citizens, which in turn- opens the opportunity for more people to be able to step into the housing market.
Land here will continue to appreciate as the area improves. Parks and trails will traverse through its many acres of green zones. New office and commercial businesses will open shop, with the intention of injecting roughly 7,000 to 10,000 new jobs for the area and will create an opportunity for a central hub that will include galleries, boutiques and much more. This area will likely emerge as the new downtown core for Lakeview.
Lakeview chiefly features detached houses, accounting for 60% of sales pursued by condos at 21% and condo townhomes at 10%. Bungalow dwellings are the most prevalent trend and the majority of properties have 3-bedrooms. The typical price in Lakeview over the past year was $866,461, a decrease of 3% over the same period last year. The average freehold price over the last year was $1,006,582 as compared to the average condo price of $567,701 over the same identical period.
