Ok so me and my brother went down to MCC and did a little walk of the area. I was surprised to see cleared sidewalks and people walking to and from Square One from nearby condos. Here's the pics:

City:
Toronto
Townhomes on Princess Royal
MCC2007015.jpg

I love how they include a little structural reveal at the top of those stone pilings, just in case you didn't think they looked visually strong enough to hold up a skeletal balcony.

Anyway, sorry for griping. The rest of the pics are fascinating. I Can't wait to see that area again in a couple years.

Awesome phototour. I really enjoyed it!!!

I think most Ontarians have no idea a downtown like this exists, especially in Mississauga. But some day people will see Mississauga more as a traditional city and MCC will get noticed more often.

Thanks again!

Must have been photoshopped; everyone knows there are no pedestrians in Mississauga!

Seriously, good pictures! Thank you.

Oh dear I think Novosibirsk Siberia has better urban planners....

Seriously, Miss will NEVER be an urban place. It will have condos, it will have a few pedestrians, but it will never be urban in the sense King St West, the Annex etc are urban.

Hopeless. (And I lived in Miss 11 years ago--City Centre doesn't look much better. Without a car (like myself) you are screwed.

Sorry Miss lovers, just a little reality check:)

Last month I was a pedestrian at MCC. I walked from the square one parking lot to a friend's condo across the street thereby proving that indeed there are pedestrians on the street, me!

I really like how the final addition to One Park turned out. Probably the best render to reality in while.

no one was saying anything about Mississauga becoming the Annex.

Most people are just saying it is a positive step forward.

Say what you will about MCC (and don't stop) but I for one really admire Citygate. It is a great building, imo. That is all.

MCC already had street retail a long time ago along Kariya Dr.

MCC isn't going to become the Annex, but then again, NYCC isn't either...

On this forum, if a newly developed area does not perfectly mimic the Annex or Queen West, it is a failure and it is worthless.

So if MCC is suppose to mimic TO 'hoods, does that mean that TO is suppose to be mimicking the 'hoods in NYC?
