Lakeview Lands – PDC Meeting – Monday Oct 28 @ 6:00pm City Hall

City Staff will bring a Recommendation Report to the Committee requesting endorsement of the Lakeview Waterfront Development Master Plan on Monday Oct 28th.

The plan increases the density of the development from 2018 Official Plan Amendment of 6800 units to 8026 units.

Three towers (40 / 29 / 24 storeys) are presented in the Marina District. The 40 & 29 storey towers have now been moved to the back row.

Lakeview Community Advisory Panel has requested the reduction of the 24 storey directly on the waters edge to 12 storeys, in keeping with the consistent request of the community to keep tall buildings away off the waterfront (see image below for explanation). 

Plan to attend City Hall to hear from City Staff, Council and Developer, LCP. (also available live streamed) Your comments may be presented by request or through a deputation to Council by contacting in advance: angie.melo@mississauga.ca

Requested reduction 24 storey tower to 12 storeys at waters edge
50% Waterfront Park Viewshed Character impacted y 24 storey tower in the front row
Suggestion: wrap 4-12 storey transition to all edges of the Waterfront Park (east to west) to protect 100% Waterfront Park viewshed character by providing 6 floors to other towers and extending six floors to the west (shown above)
At this stage of the planning process, the Ratepayer’s Association and Panel have heard, from the community, significant reservations around areas of the master plan that have not been addressed, including:

The capacity of current and future infrastructure (e.g., roads, parking, transit, sewers) to support this development and the existing stable community

Parkland Experience and design. including incorporating an indigenous village and cultural centre as part of the reconciliation process and developing the idea of a distinct and unique destination as a key goal

The amenities (e.g., community programming and centres, senior facilities, affordable housing) that the City plans to provide as a result of approving this development

The diversity and percentage of floor area allocated to various mixed uses (e.g., commercial, institutional, residential, retail, recreational, employment centres) to ensure that the development is a complete neighbourhood – where residents can live, work and play without venturing outside the development for every day necessities – rather than an isolated bedroom community

How the City of Mississauga’s Climate Emergency declared on June 24, 2019 has been considered in the interpretation of the Development Master Plan and how it will impact the OPA, zoning and other city requirements in the future

Clarifying the regulatory authority of the masterplan concerning the OPA and zoning process
