Erin Mills is a planned community in the City of Mississauga, which is approximately 32 km west to Downtown Toronto.
Erin Miles was planned and developed by the Cadillac Fairview Corporation on 8,000 acres of land.
It is a totally integrated residential, industrial and commercial community.
The name "Erin Mills" came about from the land developers, most likely because of its proximity to Erindale.
Erin Mills is a community that has been created through 4 phases.
The first phase, which is known as Erin Mills South, later known as Erin Mills, was built in the early 1970s and continued development through the decade.
Erin Mills West was phase 2 of the "New Town" development, and was completed in the mid 1980s. This area used to be part of the town of Oakville until 1974, when the City of Mississauga was established and its westerly boundary had been extended.
Erin Mills Central is phase 3, and for the most part, it is fully developed. In this section of Erin Mills, you can find everything from hi-rise condominiums to large low density housing.
The focal point of Erin Mills Central is the Erin Mills Town Centre, a great shopping centre for anyone. Erin Mills Town Centre was completed in 1989, and today it is one of the most well known shopping centres in Mississauga. You can also find the Credit Valley Hospital, which is the largest in Mississauga.
The final phase, phase 4 is Churchill Meadows and is currently under development. Many of the new buildings are medium density residential, single detached, town or row houses. This section of Erin Mills borders the mostly rural section of the town of Milton.
In Erin Mills you can find just about anything you need, the schools are great, the community is better, and it is full of life.
Living in Erin Mills is definitely a good choice for anyone, and if you do decide on living here, it will be a choice you won't regret.
