The Neighbourhood of Lakeview in Mississauga
Lakeview amalgamated into the Town of Mississauga in 1968. Currently, best known for the 4 Sisters, the four smokestacks of the former Lakeview Generating Station of Ontario Power Generation. They were called the 4 Sisters because the generating plant actually had eight boilers and two boilers were 'sistered' to a common stack. The generating station was demolished in 2007, about a year after the 4 Sisters stacks were demolished, which occurred on the morning of June 12, 2006. this was considered a great loss as a landmark to sailors on the waters of Lake Ontario.
At 493 ft each they were easily the tallest structures in the area. Currently the tallest structure is a 25 story condominium building, Applewood Place, located on the northwest corner of Bloor Street and Dixie Road.
Housing in the neighbourhood of Lakeview varies considerably as it consists of older detached homes near the lake; many are being purchased and replaced with luxury custom built homes in the 900,000 to well over a million dollar price range. This obviously is because of the location near the lake and expansive parklands. There is a great mix of residential housing north of Lakeshore and throughout Lakeview including detached houses, 2 stories, bungalows, semi-detached homes as well as town houses, condominiums and apartments. Many of the homes are on larger lots some considered estate lots. Compared to the price of housing in Toronto most of the real estate values in Lakeview are considered very affordable. Lakeview is a great place for buyers looking for a bungalow.
The area is also home to Dixie Value Mall , Applewood Plaza and a variety of mom and pop shops, grocery stores, restauraunts as well as Lakeview Branch Library, and 3 high schools: Cawthra Park Secondary School, Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School, and St. Paul Secondary School. Many parks run along Lake Ontario, including one of the largest and most beautiful park developments on Lake Ontario, Lakefront Promenade Park and Marina. Port Credit Yacht Club and several other parks with well lit baseball diamonds used by many junior leagues.

With the re-districting of neighbourhoods by TREB (Toronto Real Estate Board) as of July 5, 2011 many of the Mississauga neighbourhoods have had some changes to their boundaries. Lakeview has not had a dramatic change; but now when doing a property search or when working with a realtor consumers need only refer to Lakeview; which includes: Applewood Acres, Orchard Heights, Cawthra Park, Westacres, area around Laughton Heights Park off of Sherway Drive just west of Sherway Gardens and the Trillium Health Centre and of course Lakeview Heights.
The physical boundaries of Lakeview are: southeast corner of Mississauga, Queensway to the north, Etobicoke Creek to the east, LakeOntario to the south and to the west it is Cawthra Road north of Lakeshore Road and Seneca Avenue south of Lakeshore just after the Adamson Estateand Beer Store.
