Mississauga City Centre’s Rich History
The Mississauga City Centre downtown core dates back to 1951, when developer Bruce McLaughlin purchased 4,000 acres of land and proposed a $5-billion City Centre Plan. The Plan, adopted by City Council in 1969 resulted in a major land swap and the movement of Mississauga City Hall and The Mississauga City Centre to the corner of Burnhamthorpe Road and Hurontario Street. The area developed over the following decades. Square One Shopping Centre opened in 1973; followed by The Mississauga Civic Centre in July of 1987. In 1997, the Living Arts Centre opened with a magnificent 225,000 square foot facility. And most recently, Mississauga Celebration Square opened to the public in June 2011.
Today, the Mississauga City Centre continues to grow at a rapid pace with many new developments coming on each year and an extensive plan for future development underway.
