Once completed, IBI Group’s M3 condos will be the tallest building in Mississauga – but that’s not the only reason we’re excited
Mississauga’s master-planned M City community is heading in a new direction: up. Architecture firm IBI Group has designed what will become the tallest building in Mississauga for Urban Capital Property Group and Rogers Real Estate Development. Like its sister towers M1 and M2, M3 condos will cut a slim figure on the city’s skyline, with zigzagging sawtooth balconies reaching up 81 storeys to a dramatic sloped crown.
“Mississauga has a unique layout and acts almost as a city with two grids. You have due North and South forming one grid, and a streetscape that runs diagonal to those directions. Our twist is meant to speak directly to both compositions.” – Mansoor Kazerouni, Global Director of Buildings at IBI Group
The slanted and stepped top not only complements the balconies’ black-and-white pattern, but creates terrace units for those living in the clouds. At the podium level, a wrap-around space for shops and a linear park will animate the site.
