Urban Strategies led the master planning and development approvals process for the revitalization of the Imperial Oil Site on Mississauga’s evolving waterfront. Re-branded as Brightwater – Port Credit West Village, the revitalization seeks to transform the industrial site into a vibrant, mixed-use, sustainable urban community and an important and animated addition to the Port Credit experience. Intrinsically tied to the scale and intimacy of Port Credit, it embraces local heritage yet creates a new destination along the extending shores of Lake Ontario, a central piece of Mississauga’s waterfront. Brightwater will stitch the west side of the Credit River to the eastern Port Credit Village, and the edge of Lake Ontario up to Lakeshore Road West. Much like a tapestry of interwoven landscapes, squares, and building fabric, this new community reconnects existing parkland and adjacent neighbourhoods, while fortifying a cohesive Lakeshore Road West and developing opportunities for new residential, commercial, cultural and recreational uses.

In 2020, this project was honoured with an Award of Merit in Healthy Communities by the Canadian Institute of Planners. Read more.
