The project’s infusion of density along a future transit corridor is an important part in the intensification of Mississauga’s Downtown. Mayor Crombie spoke at the event, stating “A future driver of Mississauga business’ success is the new Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) that will be located right here next to Edge Towers. Over 3,800 businesses and 78,000 jobs currently rely on this [bus] line today, and those numbers are expected to grow to one quarter of all employment in Mississauga — or nearly 130,000 jobs in the future.” In addition to its position on the future Hurontario LRT, the project is also being built a short walk from Cooksville GO Station, connecting residents with Metrolinx’s regional transportation network.
According to Scott Davie, President of Davie Real Estate, “Edge Residents won’t need transportation to enjoy most local amenities. Edge Towers is walking distance to world-class shopping at Square One, trendy restaurants like Earl’s and Bier Market, cool markets like Whole foods, and meeting places like Starbucks and Tim Hortons. Other local amenities within walking distance include Sheridan College, the Living Arts Centre, and the Art Gallery of Mississauga.”
The ground breaking ceremony follows the actual start of construction work months prior. Crews from Michael Bros Excavation are conducting site preparation in advance of excavation for the project’s underground levels.
Sales are well underway for the community’s second tower, known as Edge T2. The project offers 418 suites in one-bedroom, one-bedroom+den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom+den, and three-bedroom layouts, ranging in area from 492 ft² to over 1,400 ft². You can learn more about Edge T2’s offerings by visiting the project’s presentation centre at 24 Elm Drive West, open Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and noon until 6:00 PM Mondays through Thursdays.
