Mississauga’s Tallest Building
CORE Architects has revealed designs for a 60-story tower in Mississauga, Ontario, that when completed, will become the tallest building in Canada’s 6th largest city.
The first of an eventual 10 towers that will make up the $1.5 billion, master-planned community of M City, the building features an undulating facade that was conceived as a continuation of the design mentality established by MAD Architects’ nearby Absolute Towers.

The tower will serve as a landmark of the first phase of the 15-acre community, which is being developed by Toronto-based Urban Capital Property Group.
CORE Architects’ design, chosen through an invited design competition, is recognized by the unique geometry of its facade, which results from the twisting of seven floor plates that skew as the building rises, stacking in a repetitive pattern.
The resulting figure creates the impressions of “fluid movement and lightness of mass.”
“M City’s tower will be instantly recognizable, but equal attention and care was given to the podium, which anchors the project. Not only does the podium enable the lifestyle component of the building, but it defines how this and future phases interact with the streetscape and the fine grain network of blocks that characterize the master plan,” explains Mark Reeve, partner at Urban Capital Property Group.
At its base, a faceted glass podium will house retail and public space, while accommodating a large rooftop terrace. Other amenities will include chef’s kitchen and dining room, small and large lounges, a kids’ lounge with games and play zone, gym and yoga/spinning rooms. Interiors for the project have been conceived by interior design firm Cecconi Simone, drawing inspiration from the architecture’s dynamic geometry.
“It was important that the interiors and amenities achieved the same attributes as the architecture: fluidity, movement, excitement. The amenities flow from interior to exterior and the spaces are not simply square or straight but are sculpted in angular planes defined with different materials. Floor finishes wrap up walls, planes are folded and twisted, sunlight and artificial light are manipulated to enhance the spaces,” says Elaine Cecconi, partner, Cecconi Simone.
The project will be anchored by an iconic design, will prioritize public spaces and parkland, and offer residents the best in wireless, high-speed Internet and cable-TV technology now and into the future, he said.
Some 700 units are envisioned for the first phase, with construction to begin in late 2017 or early 2018 and to continue in stages as units are pre-sold and as the Rogers family retains ownership of the land.
While his father did not live to see the development finally take shape, his son said “it feels as though he is a part of it.”
“It’s a wonderful project,” Edward Rogers said. “It will be built to specifications that would have made Ted proud.”
According to architectural renderings, M City features will include extending existing city streets on a unique, angular plane to create a fine-grained network of blocks, enabling a pedestrian-friendly environment. Typical residential blocks will provide two-way roads with on-street parking, generous sidewalks and residential frontages.
“Rogers has put forward a bold, exciting and forward-looking vision for Mississauga’s growing, thriving and promising downtown,” Crombie said in a statement.
“These new planned developments by Rogers are consistent with the City of Mississauga’s commitment to build a livable, walkable city, home to mixed-use residential and commercial developments that are connected to an extensive public transit network.”
New York-based urban design firm Cooper Robertson was brought on board to design the framework for M City while Cooper Robertson partner Donald Clinton was the lead designer on the project.
Architects delivered a winning design that will “redefine Mississauga’s skyline with a striking, undulating tower that rotates seven typical floor plates in repetition as it rises 51 storeys,” said a press release outlining the development.
“Rogers, because they’re not builders, they’re a renowned Canadian corporate entity that doesn’t have to squeeze every penny out of this, Rogers is creating a legacy here,” said the area’s councillor, Nando Iannicca.
The Toronto-based holding company’s plan describes a signature tower just west of city hall and right next to the downtown loop of a future $1.3-billion LRT to be fully funded by the province. The land has sat as a vacant field for decades, while vertical development has exploded around Mississauga’s city centre.
The project is being assembled by the Rogers family independent of Toronto-based Rogers Communications, the telecom and media giant founded by Ted Roger’s father, Edward S. Rogers.
