The Lowdown on Fairview

Your Typical Neighbour

Although there are a variety of demographics when it comes to the residents in Fairview, your typical neighbor is likely to be a younger, condo dwelling professional (condos make up almost 80% of the sales in this neighbourhood), who are potentially new to Canada (62% of residents in Fairview were born outside of Canada).

What We

Super close to Square One and the amenities of City Centre, right in the middle of Mississauga.

What We Don't

Fairview neighbourhood in Mississauga is quite small, and there isn’t really too much going on here - although it’s close enough to other happening ‘hoods that it doesn’t necessarily need it’s own transit/shops/restaurants.

Property Statistics in Fairview

As is with much of Mississauga, there is a wide range of housing types in the area, although the majority of the sales in Fairview are condo apartments with 2+ bedrooms (accounting for almost 80% of all neighbourhood sales). The condos in Fairview are typically a lot more affordable than what you will find in the surrounding neighbourhood of City Centre (most buildings are situated just on the cutoff line between Fairview and City Centre) and are also typically a bit bigger as many of the buildings are older. There are a few to look out for in terms of higher than average maintenance fees, so it’s important to get a full building history when determining if one might be a good fit.

The freehold housing subdivisions that stretch from Mavis to Hurontario have a good array of housing options - from the smaller-starter-semis to the million dollar plus detached properties, you can find a property here on a variety of budgets. 

Overall, people moving to Fairview are looking for a central location, suburban neighbourhood with an urban feel, close to amenities but not overwhelmed by the foot and car traffic that comes with being at the centre of it all, and a little more bang for their buck when it comes to housing options.

About Fairview

Fairview is just north of Cooksville and just south of Mississauga’sCity Centre – two neighbourhoods with a lot more character and status. That doesn’t mean there is something wrong with Fairview, just that overall it lacks a bit of personality.

Fairview actually used to be a part of north Cooksville, but in 1965 it was separated out into its own area so that Cooksville could be focused and centered around the intersection at Dundas and Hurontario (which was considered downtown Mississauga at the time).

On the most eastern side of the neighbourhood runs Hurontario, so once the Hurontario LRT is completed this will definitely be a benefit to the area as it will greatly open up it’s transit accessibility and walkability. The MiWay bus is still available along Hurontario, and as Cooksville is just south of Fairview you have pretty easy access to the Cooksville Go Station that runs on the Milton Go Line if you wanted to commute into Toronto. Once the LRT is up you will be able to take the Lakeshore West Go Line from Port Credit, and really capitalize on all that the strip along the Lakeshore has to offer (events, restaurants, shops). 

For a smaller geographic area, Fairview does have a fair amount of greenspace (which can be highly coveted in the more urban Mississauga core) – Dr. Martin L Dobkin Community Park, City View Park, Fairview Park and part of John Bud Cleary Park run through the neighbourhood.
