The art of transformation. In the centre of the revitalization of Cooksville in Mississauga.

There are a number of supermarkets a minute walk far, and more within walking distance. Just a walk from home are many entertainment and recreation centres, including Playdium Amusement Centre, Cineplex Cinemas Mississauga, Living Arts Centre theatre, Sky Zone Trampoline Park, and Canlan Sportsplex sports complex. Along with many good parks around such as Kariya Park, Dr. Martin L. Dobkin Community Park, and Stonebrook Park; you also have two golf courses just a few minutes drive away from home. For easy travelling, there’s Cookville GO and Hurontario St runs just steps away. To top is all, the waterfront at Port Credit can be reached in minutes and its many waterfront parks and trails enjoyed at any time.
Artform Condos will be part of a larger “Master Plan” for the area of Cooksville in Mississauga. Already along the Dundas Corridor, you can find countless parks, schools, and businesses, stretching from Oakville to the edges of Toronto itself. Dundas is a critical artery for the commuting people of the GTA. Now, Dundas Connects is looking to rejuvenate this corridor, and focus on developing new communities along this essential passage through the city. Led by development firm AECOM, the Dundas Connects Initiative is looking to develop the land in a responsible way to provide support for the region into the future by implementing Bus Rapid Transit, redesigning, and committing to a more robust GO Station within the Cooksville borders, encouraging mixed-use development and affordable housing and so much more. An excellent neighbourhood to raise a family, Mississauga is known for it’s many schools and parks, but also for Sheridan College – Hazel McCallion Campus, named after Mississauga’s famous mayor Hazel McCallion, who held office from 1978 until 2014. Artform Condos will also be close to Trillium Health Partners – Mississauga Hospital, as well as U of T Mississauga Campus, Playdium, and the Mississauga downtown core.
The Dundas Corridor has been an important passage through the GTA for decades. Access to all major highways in the GTA is fast and simple – connection to the 401, 403, 427 and the QEW are quick, making travel between the various boroughs of Toronto and the GTA as well as most of Southern Ontario as convenient as possible. A new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system is being implemented along Dundas Street, providing faster public transit for residents of a region expected to greatly grow within the next few decades. As Mississauga continues to grow, so to do the transportation needs of the city and surrounding areas. The Hurontario LRT system is hoping to fill these gaps, and is currently in the beginning phases. The line will connect Port Credit to southern Brampton and Mississauga, and this new line will have a dedicated stop in Cooksville. The Cooksville GO station is being completely rejuvinated, new features include a new station building and plaza, 800+ more parking spaces complete with a pedestrian bridge, 8 new bus bays, and a new station entrance on Hurontario street. No commitment to sustainable development would be complete without an increase in walkability, and bicycle lanes. A large part of the Dundas Connects Initiative is about providing raised, dedicated bicycle lanes on major streets.
