With the first two towers of the master-planned community at Daniels Erin Mills now rising in Mississauga, the Daniels Corporation has announced a third building for the site, with the first renderings of Arc revealing a flowing design that departs from the rectilinear form of the first two towers.

Like the Skyrise and West Tower buildings currently under construction on the site (below), Arc features a design by Kirkor Architects Planners. Interiors will be appointed by HOK, and the 19-storey mixed-use tower is also set to feature retail and office space at its lower levels.

Renderings show a public plaza meeting the intersection, leading to the retail podium that fronts the tower's northern elevation. Landscaping is also seen along Erin Mills and—to a lesser extent—Eglinton Avenue West, while the double-height ground floor gives way to a large terrace on the tower's second level.

Moving up the tower, the building's curving form is underlined by rows of wrap-around balconies.

Located at the eastern side of the Daniels Erin Mills community, Arc is set to rise just southwest of the Eglinton and Erin Mills intersection as the third of four buildings on the site. With Skyrise and the West Tower already asserting a presence in the area's fledgling skyline, the Phase III Arc is set to be joined by a townhouse building on the south side of the site.

Immediately northwest of Arc, the 25-storey Skyrise rental tower is now in the closing stages of construction, with occupancy of this first phase building expected to begin in the coming months.

Meanwhile, the West Tower—where excavation had reached full depth at the time of our last update in April 2015—is also seeing significant progress. As seen below, cladding is now installed along much of the shorter Phase II condominium tower. Finally, a row of townhomes will eventually enclose a shared green space—marketed as a 'community courtyard'—from the south.
