Our annual Growth To Watch For series is back again, bigger, taller, and more comprehensive than ever before. Over the course of 2019, we brought you to every significant development happening across the 416, and now we're delving beyond into the wider Greater Toronto Area. We're covering everything from brand new proposals, to those inching their way through the planning process, to those already under construction or about to be completed.
A total of 25 reports are highlighting what's happening across the region, with 22 previously released. (Details about how to get them can be found at the bottom of this article.) For a taste of what's offered in the 23rd report, here's a sneak peek at the area highlighted.

Our second Growth to Watch For report from the 905 zone around Toronto moves east from Halton region into Mississauga, a city gradually breaking free of its suburb identity with a wave of high-density developments reshaping the region. This report begins at the south end of Mississauga in the Port Credit area. From here, we zigzag through Mississauga along its east-west corridors. Lakeshore is first, then Dundas, Burnhamthorpe, Eglinton, Brittania, and Derry, progressively making our way north through this growing city.
Large tracts of post-industrial brownfields are creating significant redevelopment opportunities, with a few master-planned communities in the works. These include Diamond Corp, Dream Unlimited, and Kilmer's council-approved Brightwater on a former Imperial Oil industrial site, the Trinity District of Lakeview project by Trinity Group, and One Port Street, Canada Lands Corporation.
Mid-rise intensification remains as a significant portion of active Mississauga developments, becoming increasingly common along the city's major thoroughfares. Some of the many mid-rise developments covered in this report include condominium developments like 1345 Lakeshore Road East and 55 Port Street, and seniors living residences like The Shores of Port Credit.
The low-rise subdivision and townhome style developments that define much of Mississauga are still being proposed and built throughout the municipality. Some active examples include The Reserve at East Mineola, a multi-block town home development at Lakeshore and Cawthra, and the 250-unit 5&10 Townhome complex at Dundas West and Confederation Parkway.
There's much more, including more massive developments coming up at Lakeview Village near Dixie Road and the Lakeshore, and especially at Square One, where Canada's largest development site is beginning a years-long transformation.
New Growth to Watch For reports are being released on an ongoing basis, each covering a different section of the Greater Toronto Area. The series' upcoming 24th report will move north into Brampton and western York Region.
