The site, located in Mississauga, includes 7.4 hectares/18.3 acres of flat terrain and a water lot (20.2 hectares/49 acres). The property is currently under lease to a private marina operator that runs the Port Credit Harbour Marina, operating a wharf shed and slippage for approximately 350 boats.
After extensive consultation with the community and the Town of Port Credit Community Association, the City of Mississauga approved a master plan for the site in 2016 and the related Official Plan Amendment in 2017. The plan outlines a vision for the site’s redevelopment, including mixed-use residential and commercial space, a new public marina, parks, a waterfront trail, public access to the waterfront, and other place-making opportunities. There is an affordable housing component and a desire for creative industry workspaces. The City of Mississauga and Canada Lands also came to an agreement on a plan that will see the City take possession of the water lot, the breakwater and an upland parcel on which to establish a public marina.
In the summer of 2019, the City of Mississauga began an Environmental Assessment (EA) for its proposed marina project, which is expected to be approved in 2024, and initiated efforts to secure senior government funding. For more information, please see the City’s project website.
