If your current home is too large for you and you're looking for a condo, you'll have a lot of choice if you opt to stay in Mississauga. Mississauga is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada when it comes to new condo developments, so it can be tough to stay on top of the offerings. Instead of chasing the knife edge of development, why not choose a tried and true development that has been around long enough to become popular with buyers? The following are four such developments in Mississauga.

City Center

Located at the low end of Elm drive, these twin towers offer views in all directions and convenient access to the Square One Shopping Centre. They were only built in 2004, which means they're not so new that you'll have to deal with construction delays on your custom cabinets but not so old that things are starting to come up for repair. Each of the towers is 31 storeys high and sports 350 units. Units range from 500 to 1400 square feet and amenities include a spa, virtual golf, a juice bar, and an indoor pool. Does our mention of custom cabinetry remind you that you wanted to look at some samples for your own kitchen?
Absolute Condos

Many buyers dream of owning an Absolute Condo in Mississauga. The towers' interesting, curvy shapes set them apart from the crowd of boxy glass towers and their extreme height - up to 50 storeys each - means unparalleled views. With five buildings in the complex plus a club containing swimming pools, spas, and guest suites, there's a good chance something might come up for sale and give you your shot at owning one of these units.

Grand Ovation

There are two other towers in the Ovation family, but if you must take out a mortgage you'll want it to be in the crowning jewel - the Grand Ovation. Built in 2008 and sporting over 450 suites, this tower is not only convenient to Square One but also to the movie theaters and art galleries. In terms of amenities, it offers such luxuries as a party room, its own theater, a billiard room, swimming pool, and 24 hour concierge.

Shipp Place

If living in a unit crammed into a high tower with 350 other units doesn't appeal to you, Shipp Place is an enticing option. Its units are low-rise townhouse condos that resemble the historic homes of London and Paris. Each unit has a small yard and cathedral ceilings while the community sports a park as its focus. With only 69 units in the development, competition is fierce.
