At the heart of Mississauga lies the square one area – home to Mississauga’s city hall, celebration square, where is gets it name from Square One shopping centre and potentially your home – a new condo in Square One.
Square One is growing at a pace only seen in Toronto downtown core. In the early 2000’s the area directly around Square One Shopping centre was empty or used as parking lots. Over the past twenty years the skyline has developers into a metropolitan landscape with iconic developments like the Absolute condos and Limelight condos. The area has attacked some best developers in the country and in turn they have created some great condo developments.

Two of the five towers have a unique shape that earned them the nick name the marlin monroe’s. As well as international acclaim, in 2012 the council on tall buildings and urban habitat ( a Chicago based group of architects) name the Absolute condos as the world’s best new skyscrapers.

Its unique that it has a basketball court, the only one in the area.), 225 Web (What makes this one special is that it has units the are two story with an opening to the floor below. These units also have two story windows that give you a magnificent view of the city) and the Chicago Condos (In the summer – enjoy your free time on the 6th story that has a communal outdoor entertainment area).
