A mixed-use proposal aims to capitalize on Mississauga’s plans for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system at the intersection of Dundas Street East and Universal Drive. Situated in the Dixie neighbourhood near the Toronto-Mississauga city limits west of Highway 427, the proposed 24- and 25-storey towers are currently in the pre-application stage. Designed by RAW Design for the Landeal Group, the concept was the subject of a recent pre-submission community meeting hosted by Councillor Chris Fonseca of Mississauga Ward 3.

The 2.9-acre site at 1995 Dundas Street East currently features a 6,171m² single-storey retail strip plaza. The surrounding neighbourhood is a mix of retail outlets and low-rise warehouses, while the private Markland Wood Golf Club divides the area off from residential areas across the Etobicoke Creek in Toronto.

Envisioned are two semi-slab structures designed to house a total of 908 residential units, including 14 townhouses, 319 one-bedroom, 522 two-bedroom, and 53 three-bedroom units, the complex would encompass a Gross Floor Area (GFA) of 66,697m², segmented into approximately 65,760m² for residential use and 937m² dedicated to retail. This configuration reflects a Floor Space Index (FSI) of 5.6 across the site.

The proposal includes a dedication of 1,522m² for an on-site road, along with approximately 1,821m² of indoor and 5,972m² of outdoor amenities. Plans call for 662 vehicular parking spaces for the 908 dwelling units, with one level of underground garage plus above-grade parking in the 4-storey podium. The number of bicycle parking spaces has yet to be provided.

The layout arranges two high-rise residential buildings, the 24-storey tower along the eastern boundary of the property adjacent to Universal Drive, and the other positioned to the northwest adjacent to the proposed future street. The site’s tiered design would provide terraces on the 5th, 11th, and 17th floors.

The site offers vehicular access to major transportation links, including 3-minute and 6-minute drives to Highway 427 and Dixie GO station respectively. MiWay buses currently run frequently along Dundas Street, while the planned Dundas BRT connecting to Kipling subway and GO station to the east and eventually all the way to Hamilton i the west would improve service over current levels.

Other developments are also proposed nearby in response to the planned bus rapid transit upgrade. To the west, 1855 Dundas Street East proposes five mixed-use buildings from 8 to 24 storeys. Further west, 1721 Dundas Street East is poised to add two high-rise towers of 33 and 39 storeys, while Dunas & Mattawa project at 1580-1650 Dundas Street East plans for eight buildings reaching up to 41 storeys.
