THE MISSISSAUGA NEWS
Plans for semi-pro basketball in the works


Gary McCarthy
May 12, 2006

Semi-professional basketball could be coming to Mississauga in the fall.
Onwers of a new franchise, the Mississauga Red Wolves of the American Basketball Association (ABA), have been negotiating with the City to use the Hershey Centre for the team's 16 home games, which begin in November.

"We have more meetings with the City next week and, pending an agreement, we'll be at the Hershey Centre," said Paul Riley, president of the team and a partner in Can-American Entertainment Group, owners of the team.

"The people at the City have been great," Riley said. "They know our time line and I fully expect we'll have an agreement."

"At this point, I think both sides are kind of kicking the tires," said John Rydzewski, director of the Hershey Group.

"(The team's owners have) some homework to do and we've got to work some things out, too. Their schedule would have to work around the IceDogs (Mississauga's Ontario Hockey League team) and some of the other events that are booked into the Hershey Centre...but there are some dates available and it's certainly within the realm of possibility."

Both Riley and Rydzewski believe basketball can be successful in Mississauga.

"We think Mississauga is a vibrant city and can sustain a basketball franchise," Riley told The News, adding he has approached Rogers Television to examine the possibilities of the local cable station televising some or all of the team's home games.

"Basketball is so huge in the city," added Rydzewski. "It has a lot of appeal because of the wide cultural diversity. I'd like to look at it."

The Red Wolves currently have only a name and an ownership group at this point: The team has no players or coaches and the league's website doesn't list the division in which the Mississauga team would play.

"We're getting calls from some of the best players in the country and we're planning open tryout camps across the province," Riley said. "We want to be a community team with Canadian players and as many local players as we can.

"Our game will be very affordable, will cater to the fans and give them a high level of basketball competition."

He sees ticket prices ranging from $12 to $30 per game.

Riley said the 52-team ABA sits behind the National Basketball Association and the American-based National Basketball Development League in status.

There are four Canadian franchises in the ABA (Montreal, Quebec City, Vancouver and Mississauga), franchises in Beijing, China and Tijuana, Mexico, in addition to the United States.

The ABA has been around in one form or another since 1967 when it competed with the NBA before the two associations merged in 1976.

The current version of the ABA, which has its headquarters in Indianapolis, began operations with eight teams in 2000. By 2004, there were 33 teams.

Excellent news.....and ticket prices are LOW

Two small projects. Nothing huge but still filling in some space. Neither are really beauts, and they look like "family" to me, but none are in major locations.

Port Credit- Port Elaine Place
50 Port Street
One block south of Lakeshore at Helene Street (near the No Frills)
Hoarding had been up for over a year but from what I've seen construction started a couple weeks ago. I haven't walked near it for a while so I'm not sure how far along it is.

It has five floors and 11 units, and underground parking.


Clarkson- Nina's Court Condominium
1907 Lakeshore Rd W
Just east of Southdown (Erin Mills Pwky) and Lakeshore
Hoarding is up but I doubt anything will get built for a while if it's like the Port Elaine project which has had it up for over a year. I'm not sure if it's really "hoarding" but it's not like it use to be.

From what I can tell it has 7 floors and between 36-43 units in total. From the looks of it, it has underground parking. Also has a garden roof which is a nice change of pace.


You can find more info about the developer (Napev), these projects and other projects they've done here. They've done some work in Missy before, mostly city/municipal buildings like the Burnhamthorpe Community Centre, Cawthra Senior's Centre, and the Catholic School Board HQ. They did the SHERIDAN CLUB buidling in Clarkson, but I hope they stop building here. All their new projects seem to look exactly the same to me. They have one proposed in Brantford which is exactly the same as the Clarkson one except supersized to 12 stories and it is tripled.

I just saw on UT, Absolute has mailed out ads for the new building. It is advertised as 56 stories, and doesn't seem to have a base.

I like the slightly changed rendering now. It's esentially the same building with a few floors knocked off, but the way it curves up now seems more natural to me. It might just be the slightly changed angle but it will still become the largest Rez building in Canada not in TO :-D

I know it will be set in a park, but I am quite excited about One Park Tower... God knows why, though...
