Prices are still low – Mississauga pre-construction condos are often below $500 a square foot, which is much cheaper than other major cities. By default, pretty much all pre-construction condos sold today in Mississauga come with one locker and one parking spot. In places like Toronto, parking spots are often reserved for only 2 bedroom units and buyers have to pay upto $50,000 (or more!) to actually get a parking spot.
