REINVENTING HOW WE LIVE
- Sustainability defined by Place, Prosperity, Health and Wellbeing, Connectivity, Living Infrastructure & Resource Regeneration
- A dynamic Sustainability Centre driving global change through cutting-edge research, accelerating innovations and emerging technologies, and fostering collaboration
- Low-impact living—vacuum waste, district energy, green roofs, rainwater reuse, electric vehicle infrastructure
- A design to meet national, regional, and municipal emissions and solid-waste diversion goals
- A healthier human experience with cleaner air, walkable amenities, and a closer-to-nature lifestyle
Fresh air, green parks, and clean water, this is not the only beauty you encounter here. The buildings of Lakeview Village where you live and work will protect your future, with an integrated, forward-thinking design.
Vacuum waste takes garbage from the buildings through underground pipes to a central collection point, eliminating the need for curbside bins and improving recycling rates. Buildings are powered from district energy, a low-carbon renewable energy system. Green roofs reduce demand for air conditioning, while rain gardens and stormwater systems optimize water reuse. Transit and autonomous shuttles enable car-free mobility and aging in place. All of this is anchored by the Centre for Sustainability, facilitating new environmental solutions to further improve the way we live.
Your home is a living model for the future of sustainable communities.
A VISION FORSUSTAINABILITY
Automated Vacuum Waste Collection
Reduced Carbon Emissions: One waste truck pick-up per day to one central terminal location
Convenience: 24/7 waste collection, eliminating the need for waste storage within live and work environments
Culture Changing: Potential for recycling culture change through education, ease of use and pride in system
Efficiency: Central terminal can also serve as a main depot within the community for drop off of bulk or textile waste
District Energy System
Low Carbon: Effective, low carbon, reliable distribution of thermal energy (heating, cooling, domestic hot water)
Innovation: Adjacent G.E. Booth (Lakeview) Wastewater Treatment Facility effluent to potentially be used as heat source/sink
Education: Potential to incorporate visitor education centre and/or living lab
Building Efficiency: Reduces required space for HVAC equipment, freeing up roof top and mechanical room for other uses
ADVANCING MISSISSAUGA’S ECONOMIC & SOCIAL RESILIENCE
In 2020, Business Sweden, the City of Mississauga, Lakeview Community Partners Limited, the Embassy of Sweden, the Region of Peel and global leaders in the sustainability sector came together to advance innovative and smart solutions for building future-ready cities.
OUR STORIES& NEWS
NATURE FIRST: THE RESTORATION OF SERSON CREEK
Serson Creek is undergoing a major restoration effort to allow this underground piped water course to see the daylight, while connecting it with Lake Ontario and the future Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area. This revitalization project will re-establish a vital wildlife corridor, allow fish to access the creek for the first time in decades, and provide trails for visitors to experience nature.
