MISSISSAUGA: The Mississauga City Council has announced the winners of the 2021 Mississauga Urban Design Awards.

The Urban Design Awards started in 1981 and aim to inspire and celebrate design leaders who help raise the quality of life for residents by shaping Mississauga’s diverse cityscape.

This year, there are 13 award winners—including three People’s Choice Award winners—that exemplify the theme of the Identity of Urban Places.

These winners also showcase some of the very best public and private urban spaces that Mississauga has to offer.

“On behalf of the City of Mississauga and Members of Council, I would like to congratulate the winners of the 2021 Mississauga Urban Design Awards,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie.

“The awards are a great opportunity to recognize the designers, architects, developers and builders who have played a critical role in our efforts to build a world-class city. These private and public spaces beautify our city and provide much needed green spaces, public art and facilities for businesses and residents to enjoy.”

A jury of members from the design community and Ward 2 Councillor Karen Ras from the City of Mississauga selected the winners.
