A third route will also link Owen Sound and Wiarton three days per week. This added transportation link will benefit everyone who lives in Dundalk and Grey County, improving commute times and it will make it easier for anyone going to and from the GTA for family visits, shopping or special events.

Around the apartment community, there are beautiful parks, a nearby 77-km multi-use trail that provides breath-taking views of Georgian Bay, and many conservation areas and provincial parks that are just a short drive away.

From inside to out, Edgewood Suites is an amenity-rich apartment building in a well-connected location. It’s the place retirement dreams are made of.

Markham is a hotbed of economic development and growth

Markham – a hotbed of economic development and growth

Latest News


Markham – a hotbed of economic development and growth

As the fourth most populous community in the GTA – after Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton – Markham has been a hotbed for economic growth and development for years.

It’s long been known as a centre for growing sectors such as technology and life sciences – and therefore employment growth – one of the key drivers of housing demand.

Today, Markham is home to more than 1,000 such companies, with IBM, Huawei, Honeywell, Advanced Micro Devices, Motorola and Oracle all having their Canadian headquarters located in the city.

Residence has its price

Buying a home in Markham may cost you, though, as it has also become one of the GTA’s most expensive housing markets.

According to the Royal LePage Home Price Index for the first quarter of 2020, aggregate home prices grew 6.9 cent year-over-year to $1 million. Standard two-storey prices grew 6.6 per cent to $1.16 million, while detached bungalows increased 5.7 per cent to $1.02 million.

Still, new-home development is a priority for Markham City Hall and Mayor Frank Scarpitti, who was first elected in 2006 and is known as developer- and builder-friendly. The city has a number of new home developments underway, including some high-profile condo and lowrise projects.

The revitalization of Downtown Markham has been spearheaded by The Remington Group’s multi-use development along Main Street, which includes expansive retail shops, a Marriott Hotel, a Cineplex, as well as a variety of condo buildings and townhomes.

Cultural diversity

Culture is also an important attraction in Markham, with The Flato Markham Theatre offering more than 300 live performances each year, showcasing the diversity of the city. In addition, Varley Art Gallery encompasses the historic Kathleen McKay House, which was the home of Group of the Seven’s Frederick Horsman Varley for the last 12 years of his life. Measuring 15,000 sq. ft., the gallery is the second most popular tourist attraction in York Region.

Markham also has dozens of parks with baseball diamonds, soccer pitches and children’s play areas and splash pads. The city also boasts more than 22 kms of scenic pathways with 12 bridges that provide recreational activity for joggers and cyclists.

The largest park in the city is the Milne Dam Conservation Park. Measuring 305 acres, it is bordered by thick forest on the south and east and the Rouge River runs through the middle.

Toogood Pond is an 82-acre park that features a partially naturalized pond and marsh, and it recently underwent revitalization to remove sediment, restore the shoreline and plant native foliage.

Getting around Markham is facilitated by easy access to Hwys. 404 and 407 and the DVP, and for public transit, York Region Transit/Viva connects with all nine York Region municipalities, and GO Transit provides regular train and bus service.

Population of 328,940, located in the Regional Municipality of York in the GTA; distance from downtown Toronto, 30 km

Discover New Tecumseth

Boasting a desirable countryside setting of rolling hills, winding streams, parks and woodland trails, the Town of New Tecumseth comprises picturesque historic villages, including Beeton, Alliston and Tottenham, with the Nottawasaga River meandering through the landscape. Bordering Hwy. 400., the town extends between Hwy. 89 south to Hwy. 9 and is part of the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area. Close to Newmarket’s Upper Canada Mall, Woodbridge’s Vaughan Mills and all the big city amenities, residents enjoy modern living in a relaxed country atmosphere that feels worlds away from the congestion of the city. For commuters, the Bradford GO train station is just 20 minutes from your door.

Local families are well served with high-speed internet and numerous recreation centres, sporting facilities, public libraries, and community centres among others. Residents are enthusiastic supporters of the Alliston Hornets, currently Ontario Junior Hockey League leaders, and local kids are active in hockey leagues, baseball, football, soccer, basketball and lacrosse.

In New Tecumseth, a wealth of amenities is at your doorstep. Arts and culture is vibrant with local theatre, art classes, museums and more. Alliston’s heritage Gibson Centre, an 1889 historically significant landmark, hosts cultural activities and showcases the Arts in addition to being a sought-after wedding destination. The community is served by Stevenson Memorial Hospital, recently named an Ontario top performer in maternity care by the Ontario Hospital Association, and originally established by grocery store founder T.P. Loblaw for his parents.

Shopping is nearby and varied, from well-known grocery, drugstores, and boutiques to local produce at Alliston Farmer’s Market, fresh milk at Sheldon Creek Dairy, collectibles at High House Antiques and brand names for less at Tanger Outlets at Hwy. 89 and 400.

The 41-acre Tottenham Conservation Area minutes away is popular for hiking, biking, swimming, camping, tobogganing and enjoying the annual Blue Grass Festival. Golfers enjoy the Club at Bond Head and everyone looks forward to the annual Beeton Fall Fair with its roots in the 1840’s.

Local Focus - Oakville & Burlington

Oakville & Burlington are on the leading edges of the GTA

Latest News


Oakville & Burlington are on the leading edges of the GTA

Long gone are the days when Oakville and Burlington, neighbouring locations off the northwestern shores of Lake Ontario, were sleepy suburbs on the outskirts of the GTA. Expansion in highway and transit infrastructure, economic and employment growth and new housing development are all contributing to what today are booming, self-sustaining, destinations.

Such growth and development also mean rising home prices, as these two markets are forecast to be among the hottest in Ontario this year.

Blessed locations

Blessed with strong natural locations close to the lake, the QEW, Dundas Street West and Hwys. 403 and 401, getting to and around Oakville and Burlington has never been a challenge. But recent improvements to transit service and highways have afforded even easier movement for businesses and residents.

Such growth has contributed to increasingly diverse local economies, strong in automotive and manufacturing, but not overly reliant on any one sector.

Besides being close to Lake Ontario to the south, and the Niagara Escarpment to the north, Burlington is also home to the Royal Botanical Gardens. It boasts more than 2,700 acres of gardens and nature sanctuaries, the world’s largest lilac collection and three on-site restaurants.

Down by the lake, the recently renovated Spencer Smith Park hosts an array of annual free festivals, including Canada’s largest Ribfest, the Sound of Music Festival, Children’s Festival and Lakeside Festival of Lights.

Similarly, Oakville boasts 3,500 acres of parkland, more than 300 kilometres of trails and more than 200 parks, gardens, off-leash dog parks, playgrounds, skateboard parks, splash pads, sports fields, tennis courts, two harbours and 31 waterfront parks.

For cultural pursuits, Oakville has the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, and the Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival is an annual summer event that features a number of stages along Lakeshore Road East. The Waterfront Festival takes place in Coronation Park, including amusement rides, arts and crafts, food and drinks, concerts and nightly fireworks displays.

With so much development underway, it’s no surprise that more people are moving west – particularly those looking for more affordable homes than in Toronto. Residence here, however, has its price: Oakville is now one of the GTA’s priciest housing markets. Burlington is seeing its own home price growth spurt, though it is notably more affordable.

Burlington, in particular, is undergoing a change of sorts. In the 2018 municipal elections, residents voted in Marianne Meed Ward as new mayor, notably on her promise to address their concerns about over-intensification and development.

Location, location, location

  • Oakville population 192,832; Burlington 185,000, located in Halton Region at the northwestern end of Lake Ontario
  • Oakville distance from Toronto, 38 kms; Burlington, 60 km

Flato Developments looks to the future with promise for the charming village of Dundalk

People used to escape to “north of the city” to get away from it all. Now, for thousands of residents, “north of the city” is just another term for “home.” Everything this burgeoning village has to offer caters to today’s sophisticated homebuyer. That village is, of course, Dundalk, just an hour north of the GTA, very close to Orangeville, and a short drive to Hwys. 89 and 10 yet far from the negative connotations and congestion of the big city. Dundalk is a unique contradiction that offers the warmth of small town living with all the convenience the city has to offer.

Offering a new home value that simply doesn’t exist anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area. Mere minutes from the country, Dundalk’s small size combined with its plentiful offering of modern amenities allows visitors and residents alike to experience the simple pleasures of village living with all the conveniences of a truly modern community.

Experience the warmth and hospitality of exclusive small town retailers such as flower and gift shops, Southgate Farmer’s Market, a pet supply company, numerous hairstyling boutiques, the convenience of banks such as CIBC and RBC, or a handful of restaurants throughout the village.

Plus, Dundalk’s geographic position makes it the envy of outdoor enthusiasts everywhere. People from all over come to the area to experience true four season leisure that is simply unrivalled. Hike the Bruce Trail along the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designated Niagara Escarpment, ski the world class slopes and crosscountry trails of Collingwood and the Blue Mountains, or soak up the sun fishing or boating on stunning Georgian Bay. Whatever your favourite season, Dundalk has a reason to call it home.

Here, days are filled with watching youth soccer or little league, or meeting friends at the local community centre. Or any of the parks, soccer fields, and baseball diamonds throughout the community. Or visit Dundalk Arena & Community Centre, Dundalk Pool, or Memorial Park. However residents choose to spend their time, Dundalk is ready with every modern perk. All conveniently situated at your fingertips.

Dundalk has evolved to offer more than just a quiet getaway from the everyday. It offers a hometown feeling you have to experience for yourself. There’s an energy to the town that wasn’t there before, as new residents bring their unique experiences, life journeys, and optimism to this now bustling town. Here, signature country living melds seamlessly with a meticulously merged offering of must-have modern amenities that no one can do without.

But with a keen respect for where Dundalk has been, Flato Dev. looks to the future with promise for this charming village. And while Dundalk’s current offerings have people moving to the village in record numbers, what really has people excited for the future is what is planned for it. With major infrastructure projects such as the Markdale Hospital now approved and schools like Dundalk & Proton Community School and Highpoint Community School anticipating the villages newest residents, this region isn’t just poised for greatness now. It’s positioning itself to serve the needs of this generation and the ones soon to come. Creating master-planned communities and neighbourhoods that will address these needs today, and well into the future.

What is drawing people to Dundalk besides the traditional modern amenities is the area’s focus on bettering the lives of its residents of all ages. Mingled amongst traditional retail and shopping opportunities, you’ll find an abundance of parks, greenspace, trails, healthcare facilities, schools and universities, and several retirement homes, including Flato’s upcoming 55-plus adult condominium/community Edgewood Suites. All key pieces of a puzzle that will no doubt have Dundalk growing at a pace unprecedented in the area and beyond.

Bradford West Gwillimbury and New Tecumseth ripe for growth

Latest News


Bradford West Gwillimbury and New Tecumseth ripe for growth

If you’ve ever driven north on Hwy. 400 heading towards cottage country, perhaps you stopped off, the outlet mall at Cookstown. On summer weekends, anyway, the area might not boast the lightest traffic, but head off the beaten trail and into surrounding communities such as Bradford and New Tecumseth, and you’ll find a lot more than a few bargains to keep you coming back.

Maybe even permanently.

Bradford West Gwillimbury

Indeed, Bradford, which in 1991 amalgamated with the former Townships of West Gwillimbury and Tecumseth to form the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury, is beloved for its fertile lands and rich soil. Resplendent with lush farmland, including the Holland Marsh – “the carrot capital of Canada” – forests and rivers, this area is an agricultural hotbed in Ontario.

The Marsh, itself, comprises about 21,000 acres. Development in this area centres around sensitivity to such natural wonders.

With financial and social responsibility in mind, Bradford West Gwillimbury says its administration encourages public participation in the decision-making process for development, to make the area a desirable place to live, work and play.

And, it appears to be happening.

This area, believe it or not, is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Ontario of at least 5,000 residents. According to the 2016 Census, the population of Bradford West Gwillimbury grew 25.8 per cent to 35,325 from 28,077 in 2011 – good enough for 11th in the province.

New Tecumseth

Located in Simcoe County, New Tecumseth comprises the communities of Alliston, Tottenham and Beeton.

These three vibrant urban centres enjoy prosperous activity in agriculture, honey production, manufacturing, transportation and warehousing. Proximity to the 400 series highways and Hwy. 50 affords easy access to the GTA to the south and Kitchener-Waterloo to the west, among other areas, which is all conducive to business growth.

Given such prosperity, people are moving here to live and to do business. According to the town’s economic development office, 35 per cent of residents have moved here within the last five years. Housing development naturally follows, and several builders have projects underway here.
