The Neighbourhood of Central Erin Mills
Central Erin Mills has settled nicely into one of Mississauga’s mature neighbourhoods. It’s now what would be considered a “move up” neighbourhood with most of the homes in the area being traditional 2-storey detached.
It also boasts the newly renovated Erin Mills Town Centre, the Credit Valley hospital, and a host of brand new and mature condo buildings to give residents a taste of big city living in a conveniently suburban setting.
This is a render of the newly designed Erin Mills Town Centre. As of 2015, it’s still under construction but soon to be completed.
The original ideas and designs came before the Erin Mills Town Centre redesign. You can see the old facade in the left of this original render. Central Erin Mills will soon become a realistic alternative to Square One with areas like Port Credit and Lakeview also starting to build up to take advantage of the growing popularity of Mississauga.
Central Erin Mills real estate is mostly made up of traditional 2-storey detached homes. However, there are some pockets of condo townhouses near the Erin Mills Town Centre and in the northwest corner of the neighbourhood.
There is also a small pocket of semi-detached homes, but those are few and far between. The majority of residents here live in detached homes around the 25-30 year mark.
The slight on Central Erin Mills is that those homes are bit outdated, so any major interior renovations are going to come at a cost. What Central Erin Mills does boast is much better lot sizes and generous interior space compared to its younger neighbours.
Be prepared to spend $800K on the low end for a large, detached house (over 2500 sq.ft) on a street like the one below.
