Mississauga ‘future-ready’ waterfront plan wins urban design award


Ontario Construction News staff writer

Lakeview Village, a mixed-use community being built on a 177-acre brownfield site on Mississauga’s waterfront received the Award of Excellence from the 2022 National Urban Design Awards.

Developer Lakeview Community Partners Limited (LCPL), is a partnership including TACC Construction Limited, Greenpark Group, CCI Development Group, Branthaven and Argo Development Corporation. The Lakeview Village project team includes Sasaki, NAK Design Strategies, Glenn Schnarr & Associates, The Municipal Infrastructure Group, Urbantech Consulting and FVB Energy Incorporated.

“On behalf of LCPL and the incredible team behind the project, it is an honour to receive this designation as we work to transform a place that harmed the lakeshore ecosystem through industrial pollution into a sustainable, future-ready community,” said Brian Sutherland, vice-president of development with Argo Development Corporation, and development lead for the project.

“This award represents our approach and big picture thinking with Lakeview Village, which is to bring one of the world’s most sustainable waterfront communities to the shores of Mississauga.”

Presented by The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP), and the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA), the awards recognize people and projects that enhance the quality of life and the sustainability of Canadian communities.

Lakeview is being built on the former site of the Lakeview Generating Station, a decommissioned coal-fired power plant, will make use of a wastewater heat recovery system and a district level energy plant to reduce energy consumption.

“I’d like to congratulate LCPL and the entire project team for this outstanding achievement, which celebrates our dedication to creating a community that is built for the future with solutions to address climate change, energy resiliency, waste management and mobility challenges,” said Fabio Mazzocco, president at Argo Development Corporation.

“Since the beginning, sustainability has been a driving force behind our approach to this project, and we look forward to executing on this mission. We believe Lakeview Village will be a community that sets a new standard for how Canada approaches sustainable development.”
