Port Credit Marina Lands - 1 Port Street East
One of the most exciting project planned for the Port Credit community is the significant and complete redevelopment of the Marina Lands located at 1 Port Street East. This site has approximately 67 acres in a prime lakefront location. It currently houses a large boat shed with several Marine related buisnesses as well as the Port Credit Marina Harbour. The property is slated for a 'mixed use' commercial/residential develpment with a continuous public walkway around the waterfront. There are plans for shops, cafe's and restaurants in addition to a variety of mid to higher density housing. Buildings will range in this area from 3 to 6 storeys to a mid-rise condominiums (number of floors is still to be determined).
The Port Credit Marina will be revitalized and improved and will maintain a boat launch, and gas dock, but the total number of slips will likely be reduced somewhat. Click the link below for more details on what is planned at this site.
Brightwater - Port Credit
An exciting new development located at the foot of Mississauga Road and Lakeshore on the Southwest corner and extending down to the waterfront. 18 acres of land has been designated for parks, walking trails and open public space in this 'green' development connecting the lakefront to the lakeshore corridor. An estimated 2500 new condo's along with 400 townhomes are going to be developed on this site.
The land has spent many years vacant and returning to it's former 'free from' self from what used to be a "brownfield" where oil tanks were stored several decades ago. There will undoubtedly be some additional cleaning of the more impacted soil but it is exciting to see the end result of patience.
The joint venture between Kilmer Group, Dream Unlimited, DiamondCorp, and Fram Sloker will see this 72 acre lakefront parcel turn into a spectacular destination community on Port Credit's western border.
