Minto Communities and Metropia launch Union Village in Markham
Minto Communities and Metropia have launched Union Village, the master-planned community, to resounding success in Markham. The initial phase one launch saw more than 330 homes – a mix of single-family homes, back-to-back townhomes, rear-lane and traditional townhomes – sold over a four-day period.
In addition to its prime location, Union Village features a variety of attractive architectural options, abundant greenspace with family-friendly and active living amenities, and every residence benefits from fundamentals of feng shui and the crowning green features of Minto Communities’ commitment to sustainability.
“The success of Union Village really speaks to the quality of the project at every facet,” says Peter Maleganovski, director of land development, Minto Communities. “We knew designing a community in the centre of a municipality like Markham would demand excellence in design and expert planning for residents. It was essential for us to emphasize the beauty of the natural surroundings and create communal spaces for families to gather. We’re so glad purchasers have responded so positively to Union Village and are excited to release more residences in our later phases of launch.”
Union Village comprises two parcels of development, split down the middle by the Bruce Creek. Maximizing on the stunning natural landscapes of the area, Bruce Creek and its valley are being restored and included as part of an extensive pedestrian and cycling trail system which provides residents with access to Main Street within approximately 20 minutes. Union Village also features preserved wetlands, several new parks, playgrounds, and the incorporation of a century-old Bur Oak tree as a park focal point and gathering place for community members.
Union Village is located in the heart of Markham and within walking distance to the charming heritage village Unionville. Retail, restaurant and cultural amenities are all close by, with nearby community centres and libraries, top-performing schools, exciting events and entertainment options. Historic Unionville offers a charming, small town sentiment, with numerous attractions to revisit Markham’s past.
Union Village offers a wide range of housing types, giving residents the opportunity to select a home that best suits their lifestyle. Home sizes range from 1,267 to 4,508 sq. ft., in architectural styles such as French, Second Empire, French Country, Period Revival/Tudor, Canadiana, Modern and West Coast Contemporary. All interior floorplans have been designed with input by feng shui master, Paul Ng.
In addition to the consistency of unique interior layouts which feature ideal energy flow, residents still can customize their interiors by selecting the features and finishes of their choice through the Minto Communities Design Centre. Sustainable features within homes include Energy Star for New Homes certification, LED lighting, water efficient fixtures, low VOC paint and Green Label Plus-certified carpeting for indoor air quality.
