M City is a $1.5 billion 10-tower master-planned community being developed for Mississauga, Ont., that will begin to rise and take shape over the next decade. M city will offer residents 6,000 new units for sale or rent across 4.3 million sf, and the first piece of the M City puzzle has recently been revealed.
A 60-story rippled tower that will become the tallest building in the city when completed will kick off phase one of the new community’s development. The Core Architects-designed tower, chosen via an invited design competition, has a unique rippled façade created from the twisting of seven floor plates that stack in a repetitive pattern as the building rises. The result is a tower that has the aesthetic of fluid movement, Arch Daily reports.
While the new tower may become the tallest in the city, its glass podium is what will provide the lifestyle component to the building. It is designed to connect the building with the streetscape and future phases of M City.
Retail, public space, and a large rooftop terrace will be included in the glass podium along with other amenities such as a chef’s kitchen and dining room, lounges, a kids’ playzone, and a gym with yoga and spinning rooms. Cecconi Simone is handling interior design duties for the project.
When the entirety of M City is completed, it is anticipated that 15,000 people will call it home. In addition to the 10 new towers, M City will also provide two acres of parkland and infrastructure improvements, such as extending existing city streets on an angular plane to create a network of blocks and creating a pedestrian-friendly environment with large sidewalks and residential frontages. Urban Capital Property Group and Rogers Real Estate Development Limited, the project owner, are developing M City.
