Introducing Brightwater - a Lakefront Master Planned Community
With over 72 acres - Mississauga’s waterfront in Port Credit is about to experience a major revitalization. The Brightwater development that is to occupy the space is going to consist of 3,000 residential units, 300,000 square feet of office and commercial space, and a new 10-acre waterfront park for the community.
Brightwater Condos is the definition of a master-planned community and will change this pocket of Port Credit completely. Getting into these types of developments within the first release of tower 1 is most ideal as typically developments like these increase in price within every phase release.
This amazing project is being undertaken by some of the best developers in Canada - Kilmer Group, Dream Unlimited Corp, FRAM and Slokker and Diamond Corp. With this kind of experience, Port Credit will be one of the most desirable locations to live in the GTA in the next few years. The site has always been know as just an empty field, originally occupied by Imperial Oil until the 1930’s and used for the excavation of shale.
Nearly 100 years later, the site is set for multiple high-rise buildings with the tallest reaching 29 stories. The condos will be supplemented with townhomes and stacked towns and have living space for over 7000 new residents. In addition to that, there are plans for a new YMCA to be built on the site, and even an elementary school!
With the addition of such a development comes traffic concerns. Adding that many new residents in a really small area was an initial concern, however the addition of the Hurontario LRT will encourage residents to use transit, as they will be able to get to Port Credit GO station quickly. The GO RER project is set to make go train travel even more comfortable. Trains will depart the station every 15 mins thus making the Brightwater development and Port Credit even more accessible and convenient.
The Port Credit area already has some of the most unique events, sights, and eateries in both Mississauga, and the entire Greater Toronto Area. Some of the these unique events include the Mississauga Water Front Festival, Buskerfest and the Fireworks Show that is put on for holidays.
If you’re looking for something to eat, Snug Harbour has some of the best seafood around. Being situated directly on the shore of Lake Ontario, paired with an amazing atmosphere, makes this resto a must-try! Some other amazing food options in the area are Shore Grill and Grotto, Ombretta Cucina + Vino and the Chelsea.
Brightwater will be a sustainable site, as such a large project has a massive potential to do good. Some of the sustainable initiatives on the site include harvesting of rainwater, geothermal heating, photovoltaic generation, and green roofs.
