M3’s groundbreaking comes as construction charges full steam ahead on the 1,570 units that comprise M City’s first two phases. Rogers Real Estate Development Limited, enlisted Canadian developer Urban Capital Property Group to help bring their vision of downtown Mississauga to life.
The eight tower, 15 acre, 4.3 million sq ft master-planned community was designed by Cooper Robertson of New York, to reflect the city’s own vision for a new downtown and introduces two acres of public parkland onto the site.
M3’s slender design features a subtle twist at the lower and upper parts of the tower and a dramatic sloped crown at the top. The design is rooted in the context of Mississauga’s downtown and was the result of a design competition held by RREDUC. The tower’s verticality is enhanced by a dynamic façade defined by sawtooth balconies that create a black and white diagonal pattern up the building, providing scale, texture and materiality.
The tower form is crowned by a sloped and stepped top that complements the diagonal balcony pattern and creates impressive terrace units, giving residents an opportunity to experience the city like never before. M3 will also provide unfettered access to abundant green spaces as well as grade related retail along Burnhamthorpe, and approximately 20,000 sq ft of office space. The building’s unique design allows for an extensive amenity pavilion that includes an indoor pool and gymnasium, providing views of the neighbouring park.
The development is scheduled for completion in 2023.
