Mississauga like Toronto has a deep heritage but time has reversed the location of industry and intense commercial business. In the 1800’s the lifeblood of Mississauga business was along the lake shore in the communities of Clarkson and Port Credit prior to creation of Mississauga. Now that corridor is home to community life, and the bustle of big business, high rise and high density living is located up the hill per se. Mississauga is a huge and diverse geography with an equally large ethnic diversity and style of home.
The lake shore corridor and several pockets such as Mississauga Road and Sherwood Forest have always been, or are becoming, very sought after affluent homes. Why is easy to grasp. Whether one’s home is waterfront on Lake Ontario, perched along side the many ravines, or nestled amoung trees 100 years young the highways, GO train system, and Pearson International Airport are moments away to whisk one to and from work and travel.
If one chooses to live further up the hill, the density is greater but so is the access to highways and many large corporate headquarters and large format commercial business. In Mississauga, home to one of the longest serving Mayors, there is a keen eye for balanced development and respect for family space, events, parks and recreation for all ages. It is a young municipality in it’s greater space but thriving on that new found growth. As an affordable lifestyle choice Mississauga still holds many options, and opportunity.
