The first thing that comes to mind when you're looking for a Mississauga condo is what floor you want to live on. Some people simply shake in their boots at the thought of living any higher than the second floor while others would never consider anything less than the 10th floor. With all of the condos being put up in the city it's time to address the debate over towers and midrise buildings.
More and more midrise developments are springing up across Toronto and Mississauga as buyers look to them as more of a community than a large tower building. As well, midrise buildings can invoke great architectural creativity with a modern flair to them. In the past midrise buildings were commonly built with a boxed-type of look to them with one after another appearing on the street.
All of these mid-rises looked the same and many had quite a dull and gloomy feel to them. The new developments for midrises are taking a step forward and leaving these dull architectural designs behind. Buyers want them and since they take less time to complete than a tower building they can sell faster.
On the other hand, midrise developments generally don't offer the same type of amenities that towers do. Many of the towers being built today offer an indoor swimming pool, fitness facilities etc. for the Mississauga condo owners. These towers also offer a stunning view for people that love to live on the higher floors.
Keep your eyes on the new Mississauga condo developments. Square boxed-shaped designs just don't cut it anymore and there is now a lot of architectural creativity going into the condos being built. If you're searching for a new condo take a look through the Mississauga MLS® listings to see the newer developments that are available right now in both midrises and towers.
