You will see the centre of Cooksville to be very urban and gritty, and planning is still ongoing to attract more upscale business. Then there are little surprises like Gordon Woods, which is arguably one of the most beautiful areas of the entire city. Cooksville was never suburbia, it has and history and personality of its own.

  • Dundas St is still not that visually pleasing, and the area around the Dundas and Hurontario is quite run down.

Affordability

Compared to Other Villages in Mississauga

Score Factor 4: Overall Affordability & Value

Affordability:

Paisley and Clayhill are the more affordable areas, especially east of Mavis or north of Dundas, mostly due to the large amount of semi-detached in these areas. Older areas such as east Cooksville are in high demand due to their large lot sizes and are popular with investors and custom home builders. Gordon Woods, located south of the Queensway by the Mississauga Hospital is one of Mississauga’s most prestigious areas, so be prepared to spend in the millions for your dream home.

Value:

There is very good value for the money, given the lifestyle and surroundings this area provides. With the proximity to Port Credit, the secluded and stately streets, and respectable public schools, this area provides a lifestyle that is rare to find. If the proposed Mississauga LRT goes ahead as planned, the areas near Hurontario will directly benefit.
