In the roughly half year since we've checked in on construction at Plaza's Mississauga Square, much progress has been made on the early stages of the 33-storey Turner Fleischer Architects-designed condominium and townhome development. Work on the project on Hurontario north of Eglinton has been underway for 9 months now, in which time the site has been shored, excavated, and, since our last update, had a pair of tower cranes installed.
Forming of the site's three-level underground garage started in late 2018 following the installation of the first tower crane. The second crane followed early this year. Several supporting columns, as well as the first of the parking ramp walls, are now in place for the P3 parking level.
Crews are now excavating the soil ramp used to access the site during the excavation phase, which will soon make way for the remaining P3 floorplate and allow construction of the garage to continue its ascent back up to ground level. The three-storey podium/townhome component and the 30-storey tower massing above will follow as the year progresses.
The 313,496 ft² development will add 404 new homes to the area upon completion, while helping to extend the Mississauga skyline north of Square One shopping centre. From a planning perspective, the project could be viewed as a transition between the old and new generations of Mississauga development, with the high-density tower fronting Hurontario and its upcoming LRT line, while the townhome component responds to the area's pre-existing suburban subdivision housing.
