Markham is 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 will cost you, however, as it has also become one of the GTA’s most expensive housing markets.

According to the Royal LePage Home Price Index for the fourth quarter of 2019, aggregate home prices grew two per cent year-over-year to $951,228, condos grew 4.9 per cent to $486,898.

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 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.

Riverview at Uptown Markham is Markham’s first fully smart condominium towers

The fourth phase in the renowned Uptown Markham development by Times Group Corp., Riverview is a consummate balance of historic village charm and modern energy. On June 1, Times Group Corp unveiled Riverview’s most-anticipated family-sized units.

In a rare setting that overlooks the Rouge River, Riverview is an exclusive enclave of three smart signature towers, built to the highest and most energy-efficient LEED Gold standards. With the first two of three towers recently unveiled, Riverview’s last tower is set to open this Summer. Priced from the high $400,000s with units ranging from 579 to 2,360 sq. ft., the new residences offer a range of luxurious family-sized units unparalleled in the city of Markham.

The first fully smart condo towers in Markham, Riverview integrates intelligence, control and adaptability with energy, efficiency and comfort. Enabled by smart-home technology, Riverview offers an outstanding collection of smart condo features including occupancy-sensor smart lighting, automated parcel delivery, license plate recognition for automated entry, and a state-of-the-art Building Automation System (BAS) to control heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Other features include enhanced security through smartphone-controlled common area access, cameras and elevator control, future ready electric vehicle charging stations, keyless smart lock suite entry, and advanced Rogers WiFi with unlimited ultra high speed 150 mbps Internet.

The in-suite Wall Pad Home Connect system lets residents use, see and speak video chat to welcome guests and connect to the Riverview concierge. Residents can immediately notify authorities of an emergency, stay up-to-date and receive timely event and building notifications, and receive local weather updates. Suite heating and cooling can also be controlled from your smartphone.

Committed to environmental sustainability, Uptown Markham is Ontario’s first LEED-certified privately-owned residential highrise development. River Park (phase 1) is the first and only LEED Platinum 10-plus-storey building in Canada; Riverwalk (phase 2) is certified LEED Gold and Riverside (phase 3) and Riverview are both LEED Gold candidates.

With the goal of eliminating its carbon footprint, Richview units include an exclusive Energy Star appliance package, thermally insulated Low-E Argon-filled and double-glazed windows, an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV), and a four-pipe HVAC fan coil system for year-round resident-controlled heating and cooling.

Boasting the ultimate in modern luxury, interiors at Riverview will feature open-concept floorplans, welcoming foyers, 10-ft. ceiling heights, contemporary laminate flooring, and engineered quartz stone windowsills. Chef-inspired gourmet kitchens will include custom-designed deep upper cabinetry, premium granite countertops, undermounted stainless-steel kitchen sinks, ceramic tile backsplash, and undercabinet valance lighting.

At the heart of Uptown Markham is Uptown Market – more than 170,000 sq. ft. of shops, services and supermarkets — including a Whole Foods Market, Bed Bath & Beyond and an LCBO. A three-tier, state-of-the-art Amenity Pavilion with a rooftop terrace provides luxurious facilities for the most sophisticated lifestyles. Building amenities include a fully-equipped fitness facility with adjoining his/hers changing rooms, saunas, a large yoga studio, and an indoor swimming pool. Residents will also enjoy the spectacular multipurpose space featuring a bar and fireside seating, a dining area and catering kitchen, a library, party room, and a ping pong and billiards room.
