The Site

Located in Mississauga, Ontario, Dixie Plaza was the first mall in the area when it opened in 1956, and was renamed Dixie Outlet Mall in the late-80s. Over the years, it has acted as a place for locals from nearby neighbourhoods to shop for everyday needs, or for a bit of fun and delight – from music festivals and markets to pageants. The vision is to restore the area to its ground-breaking roots, by revitalizing it and bringing a beautiful new urban plan to the neighbourhood.

The plan will have a mix of uses, including enhanced green space, improved access for bikes and walking, new shops and restaurants, housing options, and will bring vibrancy and architectural elegance to the area.
