Sasaki to lead 177-acre master plan for sustainable development in Mississauga
Lakeview Community Partners Limited is pleased to announce the selection of Boston-based design firm Sasaki as Lead Master Plan Architect for the development of Lakeview Village in Mississauga. Sasaki was chosen to help refine and improve the initial master plan, concluding an international search that included interest from more than 30 local and global firms.
“We’re excited to have Sasaki join the Lakeview team,” said Fabio Mazzocco, President, Lakeview Community Partners Limited. “We have a unique opportunity to transform Mississauga’s waterfront, and Sasaki’s international experience will help us to not only create a destination in the Greater Toronto Area, but a model for future mixed-use waterfront development around the world.”
“The vision that has been outlined for Lakeview Village is remarkable, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the planning and design process,” said Dennis Pieprz, Principal, Sasaki. “It’s rare to find a project of this size and scope anywhere in the world, and Lakeview Community Partners’ commitment to excellence will make Mississauga’s waterfront a world leader in architecture and urban design.”
The development will transform the site of the decommissioned Lakeview coal-fired power plant, creating a model in sustainable mixed-use development. The 177-acre project will include thousands of residential units, more than 100,000 square feet of prime retail space, up to 825,000 square feet of employment space, and create as many as 4,500 long-term jobs, while providing public access to this portion of the Lake Ontario waterfront for the first time in decades.
“Lakeview Village will be waterfront revitalization done right. We’re honoured to bring the lake back to the people of Mississauga and we’re committed to creating a development that will rival the world’s most acclaimed projects,” continued Mr. Mazzocco.
Sasaki is based in Boston, Massachusetts and has worked on projects including Chicago’s Riverwalk, the 798 Arts District in Beijing, and the brownfield redevelopment of Las Salinas in Viña del Mar, Chile. Sasaki was named to ARCHITECT Magazine’s 2018 Architect 50 list.
