225 Webb Drive Mississauga
Solstice is a highrise luxury condo tower in the Square One City Centre area of Mississauga. Municipal address is 225 Webb Drive, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada L5B 4P2.
Toronto developer Davies-Smith constructed this tower as part of a four tower complex. The first two buildings to be completed were the two CityGate towers located at 3939 Duke of York Blvd. and 220 Burnhamthorpe Rd. W., respectively.
Davies-Smith then built Solstice, before completing the fourth and final tower known as Onyx, located next door at 223 Webb Drive.
Solstice was completed in 2008, and it was honored with several industry awards, including the Ontario Home Builders Association project of the year in 2005, and the National Association of Home Builders 2005 Attached Community of the Year.
Solstice condominium has an attractive powder blue and tan colored cladding, and it is situated in a way that shares an entire city block with the other three towers.
The building itself itself consists of a single 38 storey point tower that is surrounded by a podium that contains a substantial amount of retail and offices.
