M City – CORE wins Competition for the first tower
CORE Architects has been chosen by Rogers Real Estate Development Limited and Urban Capital Property Group to design the first tower in the newly announced M City in Mississauga after winning a design competition with three of Canada’s top architecture firms. CORE Architects delivered a design that will redefine Mississauga’s skyline with a striking, undulating tower that rotates seven typical floor plates in repetition as it rises 51 storeys.
Inspired by Mississauga’s Downtown21 plan, the M City project will include a ten-residential condo tower with over 6,000 units for sale or rent on 4.3 million square feet. Key community features include extending existing city streets on an angular plane to create a network of blocks, creating a pedestrian-friendly environment. Standard residential blocks will provide two-way roads with street parking, large sidewalks, and residential frontages. Two acres of parkland and access to the planned LRT along with infrastructure improvements for the anticipated 15,000 residents that will call M City home. The first phase of construction is scheduled for earlier 2018 and will continue for the next decade.
