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).

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

For a number of years, the City of Mississauga, together with the Government of Ontario, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and the community have worked together to develop a shared vision for the Lakeview waterfront that was the previous home of a provincial coal fired generating station.
“The City engaged in an initiative that spanned years of consultation, collaboration and consensus,” said Janice Baker, City Manager and Chief Administrative Officer. “The outcome of the process was a collective community vision of a mixed-use neighbourhood, with a vibrant public and private realm including open spaces, cultural amenities and a hub for employment. The Inspiration Lakeview Master Plan is the result of tremendous grass-roots energy and commitment, with a true ‘made-in-Mississauga’ stamp on it. We look forward to receiving the formal application and commencing our technical review and to further engagement with the community to bring this vision to a reality.”
“The development of the Lakeview lands has been and will continue to be a collaborative effort and a new way of community building,” said Bonnie Crombie, Mayor of Mississauga. “Getting to today was no small feat. We owe much of our progress to the late Jim Tovey and to the residents behind Inspiration Lakeview. I’d also like to thank the Government of Ontario for making Lakeview a priority and for transferring a portion of the property to the City to support innovation and promote culture. Together, we’ve built a solid master plan we can all be proud of. I look forward to continuing to work with the community as we transform our vision for the lakefront into reality, while putting Mississauga on the map as a destination.”
In October 2008 the City of Mississauga retained Deloitte, along with Urban Strategies, KerrSmith Design and Lord Cultural Resources to undertake the development of the Inspiration Lakeview Innovation Corridor Feasibility Study. Market Analysis and Economic Feasibility Study for the development of the Innovation Corridor as part of implementing the Inspiration Lakeview Master Plan vision. The study will provide recommendations and a strategy to assist the City and local stakeholders to attract new employment and potential institutional uses to the Innovation Corridor. The study area consists of the Serson Place Innovation Corridor and the Serson Campus as identified in the Inspiration Lakeview Master Plan, as well as the Small Arms Inspection Building. The study team will be seeking input from key community stakeholders in Mississauga and the broader economic region to help with the study analysis.
