Just north of the future Eglinton stop on Mississauga's hotly-anticipated Hurontario LRT, a condominium and townhome development from Plaza is now rising tall at the intersection of Hurontario Street and Nahani Way. Known as Mississauga Square, the Turner Fleischer Architects-designed development is quickly rising towards a 33-storey height as cladding installation begins to define the building's exterior.

It's been almost two years since the project's mid-2018 construction start, and in the time since, shoring, excavation, and forming of underground levels have prepped the tower for its rise. We last checked in on construction in October, when the building's three-storey podium had just begun to take shape above street level. In the months since, the tower has risen to over two thirds of its full height, with crews now forming the 23rd level.

Cladding installation has been ongoing since February, when the first panels of brick cladding were applied to the podium's two-storey townhome elevations. Most of these finishes are now in place, and have since been joined by the tower cladding above. A mix of window wall cladding and precast finishes have been installed as high as the 13th floor, allowing interior finishing work to begin on the enclosed levels.

Acute-angled views from the base of the tower show that its distinctive massing with rounded-edge balconies is becoming apparent. The upcoming installation of balcony guards will further define the facades' organic lines, contrasting against the window wall finishes.

Once complete, the 313,496 ft² development will introduce 404 new condo and townhome units to the north end of Mississauga's regenerating core.
