Square One Condos - from Eve to Marilyn
Mississauga condos near Square One
by Randy Selzer
Square One condos first started to appear on streets such as Webb Drive and Kaneff Crescent, back in the late 1980's, and I think it is safe to say that, at that time, no one in their wildest dreams would have imagined the change in lifestyle preference, and the change in the City of Mississauga, which would take place in ensuing years. Today, condos are the preferred housing choice for many buyers of all types - from first time buyers, to empty nesters, recent immigrants to Canada, and investors in the Mississauga Square One area, and all signs point to this trend continuing.
The condos of the Mississauga Square One area today constitute what is perhaps the greatest concentration of highrise condominiums of any suburb in North America. Many visitors arriving at Pearson Airport see the Mississauga skyline and assume that it must be Toronto - imagine their surprise when told that this is a suburban skyline, and that the major metropolitan area of Toronto is actually in the opposite direction!
There has been an avalanche of new condo development in and around Square One over the past 10 years, building upon the first wave, which produced an already impressive existing group of highrise properties that were built in the late 1980's and early 1990's. Living near Square One has obvious benefits: close proximity to shopping, public transit, the Sheridan College campus, Celebration Square, and much more. In spite of being located in a suburb, the walkability scores of many of the Square One condos rank very high.
Everywhere in the GTA, and in Mississauga in particular, people have embraced the lifestyle of condominium living. But not all condos are created equal - many have features which appeal to some, and not to others. It pays to know the various projects, and a good agent will know right away which ones will be a good fit for you, and which ones to avoid.
As you can guess, we have watched this area grow, we sell here, and we know Mississauga condos near Square One very well. So which condo is for you?
"Marilyn Monroe, Eve, Elle, Parkside Village, and Limelight - to name a few...the choice of condos in the Square One area is vast"
Large Mississauga Square One condos
Condos completed in the 1980's to the 2000's are typically larger than today's offerings.

Pre Construction Condos
One of the best investment strategies has been pre construction condos. Construction time allows you to make a small deposit, and hold the investment as prices rise. If you are interested in pre construction condos, we work closely with a number of Mississauga condo developers, so that when hot new developments are announced, you can get in early to VIP buyer events - this can save you thousands of dollars from what the general public has to pay.
Best Mississauga Condo:
So what is the best Mississauga condo? The simple answer to this question is - there is no answer! There are so many variables to consider, that the most important consideration is often simply what is most inportant to you, the buyer. Here are some points to consider, when choosing which Mississauga condo at Square One is best for you:
- what are the recent sales prices in the condo, and do they fit your budget?
- what are the maintenance fees and taxes, and how do they compare to similar properties in other condos?
- What sort of amenities do the individual projects have, and are they important to you?
- Are there balconies?
- Where are the best views?
- How close is shopping?
- How close is public transit (both Mississauga Mi Way and GO Transit)
- What sort of parking facilities are there for both residents and guests?
- Does the building allow pets? (many have restrictions**)
- How old or young are the majority of residents?
