Neigbourhoods of Churchill Meadows
The first phase, Erin Mills South, known later as Erin Mills, was built beginning in the early 1970s continuing through the decade. A display centre formerly built to serve home buyers and residents as a meeting hall, etc. was closed in the early 1980s and was transformed into the large, popular nightclub "Richard's".
This club was closed in the early 1990's due to noise concerns from nearby residents and the building sat empty for many years until being torn down later that decade.
Erin Mills West, phase 2 of the "New Town" development, was completed in the mid-1980's. This area was part of the town of Oakville until 1974 when with the advent of regional government, the city of Mississauga was established and its westerly boundary was extended to 9th line north of Dundas Street West. These lands then became part of Mississauga.
Erin Mills Central, phase 3, is for the most part fully developed. This section contains everything from hi-rise condominiums to large low density housing. Its focal point is the Erin Mills Town Centre, which was completed in 1989. Credit Valley Hospital, the largest in Mississauga, is located in this area.
The older village of Streetsville sits adjacent to Erin Mills Central to the east, running along the Credit River. Both areas are connected closely, even in the context of Mississauga as a whole. For example, the Streestville GO station serves as a commuter point for many Erin Mills residents travelling to work in Toronto and Streetsville residents use Erin Mills Town Centre as their primary retail shopping centre. The telephone exchanges in Erin Mills are referred to as "Streetsville exchanges", even though most are not located in the older section of the village.
Churchill Meadows (also referred to as Erin Mills North), phase 4 is still under development. Much of the new building is medium density residential, single-detached, town or row houses and as with the previous phases land for parkettes and creek courses has been protected from development. This section of Erin Mills borders the mostly rural section of the town of Milton, located to the west. The older, suburban development of Meadowvale borders the area to the North.
All four sections described above are generally not referred to by locals as "west", "central", etc. but rather Erin Mills on the whole, the gerographic distinctions were used by land developers to indicate the phasing of development.
To the south of Erin Mills (south of Dundas St., north of the QEW highway), lies the older housing area of Sheridan Homelands and adjacent employment lands of Sheridan Park. This area is sometimes lumped in with Erin Mills by both locals and others when referring to a location within it.
The lack of a sustainable high use transit corridor has prevented Erin Mills from achieving higher densities, although there is some hi-rise condominium and rental units, some currently under construction. Condominium conversion from older rental properties is also underway.
