It is beside Square One and yes, it will be the city’s tallest residential landmark tower.

First off, the announcement of this building being developed was a long time ago. However, it sure will be Mississauga's best building.

As for if its on burnhampthorpe its not far from there. However, it will be on confederation parkway (which is yet too be extended).


The height is too be around 150m from what I've heard.

This building is alright I guess... I think the best in Mississauga will be Solstice which is the same height as this. Counting only the newer ones, this one will probably be one of the ugliest, imo.

Btw, the building itself does not take up 23 acres, it is the entire project which will comprise of 8-9 buildings.

Skybean, if you find threads about Mississauga so uninteresting just ignore them and stop trolling.

Siopao, there is picture of Solstice in this thread:

That's great that Mississauga is finally starting to urbanise. It still needs its own proper rapid transit system. GO Train just doesn't cut it.

I grew up in Mississauga and I am an industrial designer. That load of horse hockey makes me feel sooooo ashamed to be from there. I hope the design is revised not only because it's crap but it cheapens the buildings that inspired it. When will Mississauga stop building McMansions and plastic movie set condos and start building architecture?

I think we should call in the USAF to carpet bomb 905 land and start again.

I think he wanted to compare an older gothic building with a modern gothic building...or he just wanted to show how the gargoyles on one park tower will look like.

I'm glad that international forumers like this tower. Torontonians and Missi's seem to have mixed feeling towards these towers, mostly because they try to be NY knock-offs and the developers have a bad track record.

Here's their earlier phase, capital Towers:
