ICI development activity

Milton has a historical five-year rolling average of 1.2 million sq. ft. of industrial, commercial, and institutional development. The non-residential total weighted assessment is 23%, which helps to create a balanced and diversified tax base that supports Milton’s revenue.

Office development

To accommodate the demand for modern and flexible spaces, there are 120,000 sq. ft of new proposed office developments in Milton.

Residential and condominium development

The steady growth of Milton’s population has created opportunities for the development of a variety of housing options and mixed-use buildings to accommodate all lifestyles. In addition to the development of residential neighbourhoods, there are 3,000 high-density condo units planned or under construction across the community.

Derry Green Business Park

Development in Derry Green Business Park is underway. The employment area will accommodate a mix of businesses including innovative logistics, advanced manufacturing and distribution facilities, while also providing much needed opportunities for smaller, flexible office units.

Derry Green has over 2,000 acres of shovel-ready employment land for businesses looking to expand or relocate to a growing urban centre centrally-located along one of the most sophisticated transportation corridors in Canada.

Major Transit Station Area

Milton is planning for the area surrounding the GO Transit station to be pedestrian-friendly with seamless integration into Milton’s downtown core. It will feature connections between the transit station, walkways and pathways to improve access to public transit. The area will accommodate mixed-use and high-density residential and office development.

Milton Education Village

The Milton Education Village is Milton’s vision for a comprehensively planned complete urban neighbourhood, integrating post-secondary education, residential, commercial employment and recreational uses. The 400-acre site is located south of Derry Road, west of Tremaine and north of Britannia Road, adjacent to the Niagara Escarpment.

The site is intended to seamlessly integrate leading academic institutions with outdoor recreational opportunities along the Niagara Escarpment and provide residents with flexible office spaces, state-of-the-art research and design facilities and environmentally-conscious urban design.

Trafalgar Corridor

The Trafalgar Secondary Plan envisions a mixed-use, transit-supportive, higher-density community that connects people to jobs, shopping, public transit and community spaces. It includes the area along Trafalgar Road between Derry Road to south of Britannia Road. The Trafalgar area is one of the last greenfield development opportunities in the GTA, along a major highway. Milton is planning for residential, office and retail mixed-used development in intensified neighbourhoods. The Trafalgar Corridor, which includes the Trafalgar area and the Agerton area, will bring 19,000 jobs to Milton and accommodate 32,000 residents.

The Agerton site, located along Trafalgar Road east of the 401, is envisioned for a mixed-use employment and higher-density residential community located adjacent to Milton’s second proposed major transit station area, intended to accommodate a new GO Transit station.
