Erin Mills, like the Square One area, are both centred around their respective shopping malls. That being said, Erin Mills is less developed than its bigger brother. Erin Mills has a lot of catching up to do especially considering the amount of new condo development in Square One. However, Erin Mills has much more land that is being underutilized. In the coming years, Erin Mills is set to see some serious growth. It’s transforming from a predominately single-detached house community to one with many more condo options. Located just north of the 403 between Winston Churchill and Erin Mills Parkway. Some worth mentioning places of interest are Erin Mills Town Center — the second biggest mall, only after Square One. In 2010, the mall received a $100 million update which included a new food court and thousands of square in new commercial space. Credit Valley Hospital is just south of there on Erin Mills Parkway. In 2012, it was ranked as the number one hospital in the Greater Toronto Area. The hospital services many different medical units, but primarily known for its cancer treatment centre. Another interesting spot is the village of Streetsville. It has a good job of keeping its small town vibe by keeping its streetscapes and historical buildings in original condition. The area also has serval festivals throughout the year such as the Bread and Honey Festival, Santa Claus Parade, Christmas Market and Canada day celebration which includes an impressive fireworks display.
Both the mall and hospital have MiWay (Mississauga’s regional transit service) bus stops that can take you across the city. If you planning a route to Toronto or other neighbouring cities the bus system ties into GO Transit. The GO Train system’s west line has train stops every 30 minutes so getting around is a breeze. The system can take as far a Niagara Falls, Barrie or Oshawa.
Just look to neighbouring Square One to see what the future holds for Erin Mills, it set to become a city within a city in the hopes to attract future condo buyers with all the amenities that one could find downtown.
