Cool to see the aerials, its so suburban looking. Each high rise is like single family homes with parking and a front and back yard. Cool towers though.

Judging from the example of MikeToronto's photothread about Mississauga in the N-Z section of the City Photos forum, this thread should be renamed "TORONTO | Parkside Village | Multi-tower | 6000 condos | 30 acres" since Mississauga is a suburb of Toronto, and therefore Mississauga doesn't count as a real city.

I searched photothreads about Mississauga and LOL. He even made a thread about Mississauga in A-M.

(http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ht=mississauga)

Anyways back to the project....

Will they build the 3rd tower right away (since it is on sales), or will they remain as high as the podium and be built later?

Each high rise may have parking, but the parking is all in underground garages directly beneath the buildings, not in lots or above-ground garages.

If the built the towers one at a time, it would take like 30 years. There are about 15 towers in the development, and a highrise takes about 2 years to build.

Goes so deep underground... it's a shame that the City of Mississauga allows so much parking in these buildings. Gives a whole new meaning to the name "Parkside Village."

^ Better that they put it underground, though. Far better than the parking podiums we see in projects here in the U.S.

The super-huge site greatly reduces the construction cost of underground parking.

Yeah for sure, but still, the amount of parking should be restricted anyways so people use transit instead.

There have been one case where above parking garage was built in another condo projects in Mississauga City Centre due to technical issues, but the garage is very well hidden from the street, covered up by lofts. As long as it is hidden, and doesn't waste too much space, above ground parking is not necessarily bad.

I think though that developers in Mississauga City Centre, where land is more expensive, don't want to waste space with above ground parking anyways, but I could be wrong.

Would you rather they build above-ground garages like they do in most American cities (even in their downtown cores)?

No, I'm saying the amount of parking in Mississauga should be reduced. Why do think I am criticizing the concept of underground parking? There is nothing in my posts even suggesting that parking should be above ground instead. Seriously.
