Just south of Mississauga's Erin Mills Town Centre, construction continues on the latest phase of The Daniels Corporation's Daniels Erin Mills community at the intersection of Eglinton and Erin Mills Parkway. Known as "Arc", the 19-storey condominium tower designed by Kirkor Architects Planners has been under construction since late 2016, when excavation began for what is anticipated to be the architectural centrepiece of the neighbourhood.

By mid-2017, above-grade forming had begun to shape out the building's rounded footprint, and in the months since, Arc has risen to a height of five storeys, roughly a quarter of the way to its final height. As it rises taller into the mix, Arc's undulating floorplates effect is just starting to show on the slab edges. Currently, views from the north side of Eglinton offer the best angles of these varying floor shapes.

Views of the site captured from Credit Valley Hospital to the east help to show the scale of Arc's lengthy Erin Mills Parkway frontage. This portion of the building will house a collection of retail spaces—totalling 15,000 ft² of space—fronting onto a new pedestrian-friendly plaza. At the site's north end, the plaza will open up to form a landscaped forecourt, partially sheltered by the tower's canted north side.
