Mississauga’s downtown core is very unique to say the least. It’s composed of over 40 condos, an array of office buildings, a few hotels, a library, two movie theaters, various places to dine, an outdoor entertainment park and in the middle of all this, a massive 300 store shopping mall – known as Square One. All it takes is a simple drive by Mississauga downtown to see that the two other major GTA condo markets (Downtown Toronto and North York) simply do not offer the same type of living as the one found in the downtown Mississauga.
On a more macro level, Mississauga has been recognized as one of the most ideal places to reside in the Greater Toronto Area. It’s conveniently located near various highways, which make a trip like the one to Toronto Pearson Airport a 20 minute breeze. From an economic point of view, 60 of the Fortune 500 companies base their global headquarters in Mississauga. Interestingly enough, many of those who work outside of Mississauga (such as Downtown Toronto) still choose to commute to work and live in the city they love. The city’s demographics have now reached a population of 750,000, with the biggest percentage increases found at the downtown core.
Given the above points, it is not a surprise that many choose Mississauga, more specifically the Square One condos, as their home. The condos found near the center of city include both older condos which offer plus size apartments as well as new developments which offer luxury and convince at a fraction of the cost of owning a freehold. Square One condos attract people from all ages and walks of life. Whether its the young 25 year old entrepreneur or the baby boomer who is looking to downsize and retire, the downtown condo market has something for everyone.
