“M3 preserves the spirit of movement and twists that made the M City 1 and 2 buildings so striking. It was important for our design to embody this artful dynamism that has become so representative of Mississauga, but with a subtle, refined application,” says lead architect Mansoor Kazerouni, Global Director of Buildings at IBI Group. “Mississauga has a very unique layout and acts almost as a city with two grids. You have due North and South forming one grid and a streetscape that runs diagonal to those directions. Our twist is meant to speak directly to both compositions. The result is a design that is completely unique to the site and emblematic of the ambitions of M City.”
The tower’s verticality is enhanced by a dynamic façade defined by saw tooth balconies that create a black and white diagonal pattern up the building, providing scale, texture and materiality. "The tower form is crowned by a sloped and stepped top that complements the diagonal balcony pattern and creates incredible terrace units, giving residents an opportunity to experience the city like never before,” says Kazerouni.
Fronting onto Burnhamthorpe, M3 will provide unfettered access to abundant green spaces with M City’s expansive two-acre parkland abutting the podium. A wraparound café on the ground level along with a linear park on the tower’s north east side, will activate a public realm in and around the site. The building’s unique design allows for an extensive amenity pavilion that includes an indoor pool and gymnasium, providing one-of-a-kind views of the neighbouring park.
“M3 cements the notion that M City is a catalyst for the evolution of Mississauga,” says Mark Reeve, Partner at Urban Capital Property Group. “I’m very proud of our tremendous team, which includes the owner/developer, Rogers Real Estate Development Limited, IBI Group, Cecconi Simone, Ellis Don, Cooper Robertson and our other leading-edge consultants. Together, we continue to push the envelope and deliver a dynamic community that Mississauga will be proud of. We want to help put this city on the map as one of the most progressive, forward-thinking and creative places in the world.”
M3 is Mississauga’s tallest tower at 81 storeys, with almost 900 units ranging from 480 sq.ft. to 1,000 sq. ft.
