If you’ve been to Port Credit in the past year or two you might have noticed the gigantic construction site just opposite the Credit Landing plaza.

That’s the Brightwater Development that spans from the old Esso gas station to the Peel Used Car lot. It’s the next big development taking place in the city and it’s going to practically double Port Credit in size. Here’s a little about it by the company themselves:

Brightwater Port Credit is a new preconstruction development coming to Mississauga, complete with retail spaces, a waterfront park, offices and condos.

Also dubbed as Port Credit West Village the 70 acre site will include more than 500 townhomes and 2,458 condominium units in mid-rise and high-rise buildings that will be capped at a maximum of 29 storeys.

A distinct Master-Planned community that offers lakeside tranquility and park side activity, places to gather and spaces to play, enjoy lively events and festivals, or the calm lapping of water against the shoreline, walk the trails and walk the shops, dine in, or dine out, be connected to it all.

Relax on your private patio, live close to the action, or up high with an unbeatable view. Community Inspired Living in Port Credit. Experience Brightwater.

The development is promising to be something huge and something rather transformative for the area. With so many new townhouses, condos, shops, and even schools, Brightwater is aiming to be the go-to area in Port Credit. And, based on the artist renditions of what the finish site will look like, it’s not hard to see why:

Brightwater will feature 300,000 square feet of retail space, meaning quite a lot of shops. Which is interesting because it’s right next to the Credit Landing plaza that already boasts some shops. It means that the Brightwater area will immediately become Port Credit’s premiere shopping destination.

The area will also feature 14 acres of nature, bike lanes, and even a YMCA. With so many new homes coming to the area, there will be additional thousands of citizens living in the Port Credit area. Naturally, with such a large development coming to the area, there is a lot of locals who aren’t pleased; believing that Port Credit will lose its character as it doubles in size. Whether or not those fears or valid, the area is going ahead as planned.

There’s no word yet on how much the condos or town houses will cost but, based on the surrounding area and amenities, we can only assume they won’t come cheap. Regardless, if you have a desire to live in this incredible exciting new development in Port Credit, then register here on the website, and be amongst the first to enter the area when it opens in the mid 2020’s.
