    The seemingly terminal decline of Tim Hortons

    This is from the Beaverton or the Onion, right?

    Mississauga Toronto | M3 at M City | 260.29m | 77s | Rogers Real Estate | Arcadis

    I think some of the older Mississauga neighbourhoods have individual plots of SFH being redeveloped for more density. You see this when riding the GO Lakeshore West line, especially where tiny 1950’s „cottages“ are on a large plot of land. Where it might take a few generations to see the...

    Today a segment from a TVOThe Agenda discussion panel on Mississauga regarding its transition to being a proper city versus a suburb was uploaded on YouTube. Just an interesting point to continue our conversation.

    How many storeys have been poured so far?

    Mississauga Toronto | Exchange District Condos | 232m | 72s | Camrost-Felcorp | Arcadis

    I can walking through winding parking lots and tower alleys and crossing wide streets might make walking unpleasant. But trees along the sidewalk and in medians, public artwork, more buildings (and smaller parking lots!) would go a long way in encouraging foot-traffic. I remember visiting...

    Mississauga Toronto | Exchange District Condos | 232m | 72s | Camrost-Felcorp | Arcadis

    I noticed that most pictures from the street level of the Mississauga City Centre are devoid of pedestrians. Is this just a coincidence or done on purpose for privacy reason or is there currently little foot traffic? I hope that with more of these developments, their commercial and institutional...

    Waterloo Toronto | 170 Northfield Drive West | 129.6m | 40s | Forgestone | Turner Fleischer

    Hopefully the other parking lots are developed nearby also which may provide more opportunities for amenities and parks. Retail is still available in the surrounding area and a certain portion of the development will be retail. I am not familiar with the area- is there green space available in...

    Brampton Toronto | Daniels MPV 2 (Block B) | 50.11m | 14s | Daniels | Lemay

    That‘s insane! I live in Germany where most cities cluster their schools around streetcar, subway, and regional transit stations with little to no parking lots, including in small towns in the countryside. Even though these were usually built in the post-war period when highways were expanded...

    It sounds like a traffic bottleneck!

    Brampton Toronto | Daniels MPV 2 (Block B) | 50.11m | 14s | Daniels | Lemay

    Wow that‘s a wide road! I hope eventually the area will feel more urban and pedestrian-friendly.

    Any updates to this project, such as when construction will start?

    The seemingly terminal decline of Tim Hortons

    I miss the extra small coffee cup size option. It was usually exactly what I needed.

    Mississauga Toronto | The Kith and Kindred Condominiums | ?m | 25s | Daniels | Kirkor

    Are there preliminary plans accessible anywhere (like the City of Mississauga website)? I am so curious! Part of me was fantasizing about pedestrian bridges to cross these thicc stroads and bring residents safely over to the mall.

    Mississauga Toronto | The Kith and Kindred Condominiums | ?m | 25s | Daniels | Kirkor

    I can see this being appealing to many people because of those two items mentioned. And for those not yet willing to use their car less, they see themselves near the centre of Mississauga and close to the highway and major arterial roads. Plus, as Undead mentioned, there is so much excess demand...

    Mississauga Toronto | M3 at M City | 260.29m | 77s | Rogers Real Estate | Arcadis

    Are Canadian suburbs like Mississauga (over 800,000!) unique in the Western world for their population sizes and skylines? I can imagine many parallels in East Asia, but I cannot seem to think of equivalents in North America, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand. Perhaps in Latin America?

    Mississauga Toronto | M3 at M City | 260.29m | 77s | Rogers Real Estate | Arcadis

    It is quite eye-opening when one compares the population of Mississauga with European cities like Dublin, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, or Rotterdam and realizes just how populous and big it is for a mere “suburb”. I am curious how aware people in other provinces and countries are of Mississauga...
