The Lowdown on Port Credit

Your Typical Neighbour

Port Credit is home to a variety of inhabitants who all have one thing in common: the desire to live in a community rich neighbourhood with a tight-knit feel and the amenities of a big city. The average demographic ranges from young professional families to more mature families and retirees.

What We

This suburban neighbourhood is one of the most urban in Mississauga - more walkable than City Centre, with more amenities, shops, restaurants and even a nightlife.

What We Don't

If you’re driving, Lakeshore is super busy the majority of the day. That said, a car really isn’t necessary in this neighbourhood.

Port Credit is one of the most hip and happening neighbourhoods in all of Mississauga - this catchment has something for everyone. The main strip along Lakeshore at Hurontario is lined with super cool boutique shops and restaurants, with a boardwalk that opens up in the summer months where the local bars extend their patios out to the street. You can hit up The Crooked Cue (a resident favorite) to grab some happy hour drinks and shoot some balls, El Hefe if you want some incredible tacos (they have some great nightlife too), Yumbudz for oldschool ice-cream and soft serve, Snug Harbour if you’re feeling like some higher end seafood, or Raw Aura for incredible raw vegan fare. The options are honestly endless.

 

Port Credit has two main boutique grocery stores (Cousins and Planet Organic) and the typical Loblaws Superstore. If you’re looking for something a little more “farm-to-table”, there is a hosted Farmer’s Market on Lakeshore beside the LCBO in the summer (a must-visit for residents from Port Credit and neighboring communities).

 

There are dance studios, consignment shops, bridal stores, beauty salons, and smoke shops.. The list is endless.

 

The strip along Lakeshore also hosts many festivals throughout the year: Water Lantern Festival, Southside Shuffle and Blues Festival, Paint the Town Red Port Credit Canada Day, Mississauga Rib-Fest, Buskerfest, and the Mississauga Waterfront Festival (to name a few).

 

Port Credit also has its own Go Station which gets you downtown in under 20 minutes, and is the soon-to-be-home of the Hurontario LRT that will connect north and south Mississauga.

 

Good schools, beautiful homes, a sense of community, walkability, and transit accessible all on the lakefront? Where do we sign-up?

About Port Credit

A great neighbourhood comes with a great price tag – getting into this area of South Mississauga will cost you a pretty penny, although there are some more affordable options depending on your tastes and must-haves.

 

Real estate in Port Credit ranges from some very affordable condos by the Go Station, some higher end developments closer to the water in and around Port St, condo townhouses dispersed throughout and more expensive older character homes.

 

If you’re on a budget trying to get into this neighbourhood you might consider some of the condos in and around Park St/Elizabeth St close to the Go Station. The location for these properties is prime as you are close to the main strip in Port Credit at Lakeshore and Hurontario, and may even get lake views depending on the orientation of the unit. The units are typically large (2+ bedrooms), and are quite affordable in comparison to the surrounding. So, what’s the catch? Some of these properties do not have their own laundry rooms, and some utilize baseboard type heating (that means no AC). The buildings are much older, lack their own amenities, and are dispersed throughout an area where there are a lot of rental apartment buildings. The economic spread in Port Credit can be quite large, and can be seen throughout these rentals.

 

There are some newer condo developments (1 Hurontario, Port St condos) that are great for young families, young professionals, and retirees – these are a bit closer to the water and do command a higher price tag than the latter.

 

Condo townhouse developments range from the Ports of Olde Port Credit at Park and Hurontario – where the majority are three story homes, with the caveat being that these lack a backyard and are quite close to the train tracks, to the higher end (million dollar plus) executive condo townhouses by the lake just south of Lakeshore and Hurontario.

 

The freehold market in this neighbourhood is out of reach for the average buyer (even when looking at some of the smaller detached homes – land in this area commands a premium). Port Credit is also known for its larger custom homes and updated/renovated 50s and 60s era properties interspersed throughout the community.

 

As the Hurontario LRT was introduced to the neighbourhood, developments started popping up. Some older homes and buildings are in the process of being removed and the land redeveloped by the Go Station into some higher end condo properties (Tanu), but the biggest redesign is “West Village” coming to the waterfront – 2,500 housing units, a community center, parks and commercial space on the old oil refinery.
