Project details

Inspired by the great villas of Tuscany this beautiful building has Contemporary neo-classical design. The units have spacious balconies and terraces. Guests will be welcomed in a gorgeous lobby where they will be asked to identify them selves by a 24hr concierge. The building is located in Downtown Mississauga where amenities are always close for everything you need. Shop at Square One, see a movie at Cineplex or eat out at the restaurants located near by.

Developed by Castle Group Ventures this building has the latest CHP unit from Blue Power.  This on On-Site combined heat and power unit develops 65kW and provides over 400,000 btus of heat energy in a high-efficiency configuration.  The system operates as the buildings primary energy source while the other heating equipment augments the buildings needs during extreme cold days.  An online internet based system  monitors the equipment remotely and provides performance data and alarms as needed.

The project has resulted in competitive costs for both heat and electricity, compared to the alternatives.
