There isn’t too much going on in Lakeview at the moment, but geographically speaking the closeness to Toronto is perfect for those who regularly commute into the city. The strip along Lakeshore hasn’t quite developed the same way it has in other South Mississauga communities, but we are hopeful that will continue to gentrify with the new developments scheduled to take place.
A newer condo townhouse development at Atwater is almost completed, but the piece de resistance is going to be the 177 acre Lakeview Village development scheduled to start construction in 2020.
Previously the ‘four sisters’ coal power plant, this redevelopment should completely transform this portion of the waterfront. The development will be sectioned off into 7 different nodes, all serving their own purpose: shopping, dining, recreation, and living. In the center of it all will be Lakeview Square, fitted with its own man made pond with available kayaks and canoes for rent. The development should be a show stopper, and could help put Lakeview on the map in a similar fashion to its westerly sister, Port Credit.
The one downside to this incredible development is that Lakeview isn’t fashioned with its own Go Train, making the MiWay buses the only available transit for residents at this time – but the Port Credit Go Station and Long Branch Go Station are just a short jaunt away. Travel by vehicle is decent with easy access to the QEW, 427 and Gardiner Expressway.
Although Lakeview isn’t quite as built up at the moment, it does have its own outlet mall – Dixie Outlet Mall, and is in close proximity to Sherway Gardens just east down the QEW.
