Rogers Real Estate Development Limited and Urban Capital unveiled M3, which will be the tallest tower in Mississauga once complete.
“M City is the first residential development for the Rogers Family and we are thrilled to once again be partnering with the City of Mississauga. Our goal is to develop a world-class community befitting any city in the world. The unveiling of M3 is a significant step towards that goal,” said Edward Rogers, Chair of Rogers Communications, in a release.
Mississauga mayor Bonnie Crombie was present for the unveiling of M3. “We are working to build a complete, well-planned city. Today is another important milestone as we shape our city’s growing and thriving downtown core,” she said at the event. “Once complete, M City will define the western edge of downtown Mississauga and will perfectly complement the Absolute Towers to the east. These significant and ongoing building investments help strengthen our City’s tax base which allows council to fund important resident priorities we all rely on including libraries, community centres and public transit.”
Designed by IBI Group, M3 will rise 81 storeys, featuring a “subtle twist” at the top and bottom of the tower. Two acres of parkland will be located next to the podium, and there will be a wraparound cafe at street level. A couple of the building amenities include an indoor pool and a gym.
“M3 preserves the spirit of movement and twists that made the M City 1 and 2 buildings so striking. It was important for our design to embody this artful dynamism that has become so representative of Mississauga, but with a subtle, refined application,” said lead architect Mansoor Kazerouni, Global Director of Buildings at IBI Group. “Mississauga has a very unique layout and acts almost as a city with two grids. You have due north and south forming one grid and a streetscape that runs diagonal to those directions. Our twist is meant to speak directly to both compositions. The result is a design that is completely unique to the site and emblematic of the ambitions of M City.”
M3 will feature nearly 900 units ranging from 480 to 1,000 square feet. Currently, 1,570 units at M City are in the works as construction progresses at M1 and M2. The entire master-plan will feature eight towers across 15 acres, creating 4.3 million square feet of mixed-use space.
“M3 cements the notion that M City is a catalyst for the evolution of Mississauga,” said Mark Reeve, Partner at Urban Capital Property Group. “I’m very proud of our tremendous team, which includes the owner/developer, Rogers Real Estate Development Limited, IBI Group, Cecconi Simone, Ellis Don, Cooper Robertson and our other leading-edge consultants. Together, we continue to push the envelope and deliver a dynamic community that Mississauga will be proud of. We want to help put this city on the map as one of the most progressive, forward-thinking and creative places in the world.”
Now that M3 has been unveiled, we can’t wait to watch the Mississauga skyline continue to transform before our eyes.
