All M City residents will have access to the Rogers Smart Community 1VALET app, a smart building ecosystem that offers a smartphone-centric living experience, including everything from enhanced contactless building access and facial recognition entry to digital keys and remote guest access, and integration with the smart door lock and smart thermostat included in every suite.
At the core of M4 is a Distributed Antenna System (DAS), which will be exclusively built for M City; this innovative infrastructure will distribute the Rogers wireless cellular network throughout M4, increasing reliable connectivity for residents to places known to be dark spots.
Residents will also receive an advanced fibre powered network at M4, which will ensure they can enjoy secure wifi coverage at home and throughout the amenity spaces. Each suite will also be equipped with Rogers Ignite InternetTM Gigabit, offering residents consistent connection.
The launch of M4 comes as the development’s first two phases, M1 and M2, are rising up the Mississauga skyline. The city’s tallest tower, M3, broke ground in Autumn 2020.
Core Architects led the architectural vision for the building, which sees M4 come to life as a single tower made up of four “towerettes”. The building is defined by repeating, vertical fins that rise out of a dynamic podium and terminate at different heights in the sky. The overall form of the building was designed to resemble an “S” when viewed from a bird’s eye perspective, allowing the architectural team to create six corner units, increasing access to this desirable unit type for future residents.
M4’s sophisticated, timeless tower is juxtaposed against a striking, deconstructed podium composed of stacked rectilinear building blocks. The intention is to amplify the drama and architectural energy along the streetscape, while complementing the community wide impact along Mississauga’s western skyline.Babak Eslahjou, Principal, Core Architects
Cecconi Simone designed suite interiors as well as the 36,000 sq ft amenity programme, which is spread across three floors and weaves between the interior and exterior of the building. Amenities include a Zen inspired Nakaniwa Garden, open air saltwater pool, sprawling outdoor amenity terrace, communal workspace, fitness centre, playroom, and a dual purpose party room and coworking space.
A focal point of the amenities programme is the Nakaniwa Garden, a courtyard defined by a rock sculpture garden atop a water plinth. Visible from the adjacent fitness centre, the Garden can be accessed from the party room, yoga room and a curved staircase that connects to the outdoor amenity terrace above.
M4 is the fourth of eight towers planned for M City, which is expected to bring more than 6,000 units to the Mississauga core by the community’s completion.
The site will also bring over two acres of park land for the community, M Park, the Mary Fix multi-use trail and the future Hurontario LRT.
