Along with the HuLRT, which will have its own dedicated lane for north and southbound travel, the forthcoming electrification of the GO Train will see the east and west lines of service increased to every 15 minutes.
Residents will find taking the HuLRT or GO Train faster, more convenient, cost effective, and environmentally friendly than driving a car and battling daily traffic.
By focussing on developing housing in areas that provide immediate access to high-order transit, at junctions like the Port Credit Mobility Hub, we encourage reduced automobile dependence and traffic congestion.
The planned Pedestrian Mews is intended to invite both residents and the surrounding neighbourhood to enjoy all this space will have to offer, while complementing the character and charm Port Credit is known for. By respecting and embracing the local community, the development will create a space to benefit everyone in the area.
By working with Port Credit residents and Canadian artists, this project will strive to enhance local identity and bring vitality to communal areas. Edenshaw is an avid and long-standing supporter of the arts in Mississauga and has proudly sponsored numerous arts initiatives over the years including Arts on the Credit; Prismatic: Celebration Square; and the Morphology photography series.
With sustainability at the forefront, this development aims to reduce sprawl, automobile dependency, traffic, resource consumption, and encourage a shift to modes of transport that will contribute to a healthy community.
Although not a requirement of the City of Mississauga, 88 Park St will be a candidate for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification – the most widely used green building rating system.
As a testament to our commitment to environmental initiatives, Edenshaw’s most recent residential community, Alba, is implementing a geothermal energy system, which is currently being explored for 88 Park St and all future Edenshaw sites.
The integration of geothermal systems in residential buildings eliminates the use of fossil fuels for heating and cooling, therefore drastically reducing emissions and energy consumption. This allows for greater cost-savings for residents, lower environmental impact and a carbon reduction of approximately 80 per cent compared to similar structures heated by natural gas.
