Mississauga Celebrates 10 years in a row of $1 Billion in Construction

Mississauga Celebrates $1 Billion in Construction 10 Years in a Row

Mayor Hazel McCallion, members of Council and the City's Leadership Team, along with staff in the Planning and Building Department, will celebrate the City's 10-year building milestone at a cake-cutting reception following the regularly scheduled Council meeting at 2 p.m.

"This is a very exciting time for Mississauga. New condominium developments are dramatically changing our city centre, and innovative new commercial and industrial developments, our talented labour force, and access to quality city amenities, are attracting businesses to Mississauga from around the world."

Total value of residential building permits issued last year was $552,832 million.
"About 44 hectares are located in the city centre where, once developed, the employment opportunities will complement the residential development already in place and will add to the vitality and excitement of Mississauga's downtown."

The total value of construction over the last decade is $14 billion. Of that, $7.96 billion was for residential development.

Mississauga City Centre is where much of the new condo activity is located. Many of the projects mix residential with commercial and office developments.
They include:
- One Park Tower at 388 Prince of Wales Dr. This 38-storey tower features grade-related commercial space.
- Solstice One at 225 Webb Dr. This 38-storey tower offers grade-related retail and commercial space as well as second floor office space.
- Absolute Tower Three at 80 Absolute Ave. This is the third in a series of five condominiums to be built at the corner of Hurontario St. and Burnhamthorpe Rd.

During Council, Agris Robeznieks, the City's chief building official and director of building will make a presentation outlining Mississauga's 2006 Year-End Building Statistics and overview of the City's 10-year achievement in surpassing $14 billion total in prescribed construction in 10 years.

"Building is still booming in Mississauga where we have an ideal balance of residential and commercial-industrial development, which provide wide choices and great opportunities for living and working in our city," says Mayor Hazel McCallion.

"Mississauga is open for business with 1,198 hectares of vacant employment land available," says planning and building commissioner Ed Sajecki.

The City of Mississauga is celebrating its 10th year of construction activity totalling more than $1 billion.

The final tally for 2006 shows that 4,275 permits were issued during the year, valued at $1.05 billion.
