One of the more popular condo projects located in the Mississauga Square One area is known as Chicago. This art deco inspired, 36 storey building was completed in 2010, and has a distinctive look on the Mississauga skyline. Chicago is unique in that, in addition to the usual array of condo amenities, such as swimming pool and gym, there is also a 30 foot climbing wall for rock climbing residents to enjoy. The 6 storey podium also includes a full Rabba grocery store, as well as a yoga studio, and other businesses, and has elaborate BBQ and entertainment amenities on its roof .
Chicago was built by well known Toronto developer The Daniels Corporation, and it features both highrise condo apartments, plus a few select “urban” townhouses.

Limelight condos are two towers recently completed in the Square One area of Mississauga City Centre, which have been garnering accolades from both real estate professionals, and the public. These two condominium towers were built and completed by The Daniels Corporation in 2012, as part of their master planned Mississauga City Centre community, and are already a popular and sought after address. See my main site for a full overview, with photos, prices, and description of the Limelight condos – Mississauga.
In the third of our series profiling the most expensive neighbourhoods in Mississauga, we present the pastoral beauty of Gordon Woods. Gordon Woods is a smallish area located next to the Trillium Hospital in Mississauga, and these homes were in fact originally built to house the doctors working there. The two most distinctive features of Gordon Woods are undoubtedly the extensive tree canopy which you will find, with many tall trees, with long, tree-lined winding driveways, and heavily forested lots, plus the unbelievable central location minutes from downtown Mississauga. Standing in the tranquility of Gordon Woods, it seems hard to believe that you are not somewhere vacationing in the cottage country situated north of Toronto, which is known as ”Muskoka”.
Read the full article on on this expensive neighbourhood on our main website; for more information and pictures go to the luxury homes of Gordon Woods.
Doulton Drive, Doulton Place, and Blythe Road are three exclusive streets in a quiet enclave located off of Mississauga Road, just north of the QEW highway, which together comprise an area known as the Doulton Estates. These amazing luxury homes are among the most impressive (and expensive!) in all of Mississauga. Check out our main website photo tour of the Mississauga mansions of Doulton Drive.

Mississauga Absolute World condos received a major accolade this past week, when the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, a prestigious Chicago-based not-for-profit organization, named them the best new tall buildings in the Americas for 2012. The CTBUH awarded four global winners in total, from four separate geographical regions.
Absolute World condominiums (Marilyn Monroe buildings) in Mississauga, Ontario – winner for the Americas
1 Bligh Street, Sydney – winner for Australia and Asia
Palazzo Lombardia, Milan – winner for Europe
Doha Tower, Doha – winner for the Middle East and Africa
Buildings were chosen for their design and technical innovations, their sustainable characteristics, the enhancement they provide to the cities where they are located, and the enhancement they provide to the lives of the citizens in those cities.
The four winners for 2012 will be honoured, and awards will be given out, at the CTBUH 11th Annual Awards Ceremony which is scheduled to take place at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, on October 18th, 2012. On the night of the ceremony, in addition to the four regional awards, from these, one overall winner will be selected, and will be awarded with the title of “Best New Tall Building Worldwide” for 2012.
The ‘Best in the Americas’ award just bestowed on ‘Marilyn’, and the recognition that goes with it, only confirms what the citizens of Mississauga already know – that the Absolute World condominiums, the ‘Marilyn Monroe’ towers of Mississauga, are two of the most exhilarating real estate developments in recent memory, that provide a daily delight to the senses for anyone lucky enough to see them on an everyday basis. The Mississauga skyline will never be the same.
Congratulations to the development team at Fernbrook/Cityzen, to Dominus construction, to everyone who bought at these fabulous condos, and to the City of Mississauga! And good luck in October – winning the overall “best new tall building in the world” for 2012 would be well deserved!
