From smokestacks to sustainable housing

November 2, 2021

What was once a polluted area of Ontario known as the Four Sisters—four smokestacks on a 177-acre, coal-burning Lakeview Generating Station in southeast Mississauga—is being developed into an sustainability award-winning waterfront community called Lakeview Village.
Lakeview Community Partners Limited (LCPL), a subsidiary of Argo Developmenr Corp., which bought the contaminated site in 2018, plans to build up to 8,000 new homes and restore much of the land close to its former natural state.
Much of the early work on the site has focused on improving the infrastructure and cleaning the land.
LCPL was the recipient of the 2020 Canadian National Brownfield (Brownie) Awards in the “Reinvest” category. The Brownie Awards recognize builders, innovators and visionaries who are dedicated to the rehabilitation of brownfield sites once contaminated, under-utilized and undeveloped into productive residential and commercial projects that contribute to the growth of healthy communities across Canada. 
Lakeview Village will be a mixed-use community—including housing, retail, cultural facilities, and a 50-acre park. The first phase, a high-tech business park, is under construction and expected to partly open in 2021. The entire Lakeview Village project will take more than a decade to complete.
