A new residential opportunity awaits in downtown Markham with the grand opening of Markham Square Condos by Ideal Developments and ONEPIECE Developments. The two-tower community will be hosting a grand opening celebration this weekend inside the presentation centre, located at 4461 Highway 7 in Markham. The event coincides with Chinese New Year and will include exclusive purchase incentives and hourly prizes. Starting at noon on February 17th, guests will be entered into hourly draws for fun and exciting prizes like a Google Home speaker system, wireless Apple earbuds, tablet computers and more. Plus, one lucky winner will receive $20,000 cash back towards the purchase of a new home.
Combining the conveniences of urban living with small town comforts, Markham Square Condos is ideally situated within proximity to both Markham’s vibrant city centre and the quaint village of Unionville. The area is dotted with shops and services, major company headquarters, educational institutions, recreational areas and entertainment venues. Within the community, Markham Square will house a mix of retail and commercial spaces at podium level with frontage along Enterprise Boulevard.

Across the street is the Markham Pan Am Centre, a world-class sports facility that features a 10-lane, 50-metre swimming pool, a 36,000-square-foot gymnasium and a multi-level fitness centre for cardio and strength training. Also nearby is the site of York University’s new Markham campus. Developed in partnership with Seneca College, the City of Markham and the Regional Municipality of York, the 21st century campus is slated to open in 2019 and will welcome over 4,000 students.
Although Markham Square is within walking distance to an array of local amenities, the area is also well serviced by public transportation including Viva, YRT, TTC and GO Transit via the Unionville GO Station. And with convenient access to Highway 7, Highway 407 and Highway 404, commuting across the region is easily accessible, quick and efficient.
Designed by Toronto-based Kirkor Architect + Planners, the exterior consists of two 33- and 29- storey towers surrounded by a landscaped courtyard and promenade by renowned landscape architecture firm NAK Design Strategies. Its contemporary architecture is highlighted by expansive spans of glazing at varying levels, creating a sparkling jewel box effect. Suites feature generously-sized wraparound balconies and cascading terraces that further animate the two-tone exterior facade.
Inside, the open-concept layouts are great for entertaining and are well-appointed with a high level of standard features. Homebuyers will have a choice of professionally-coordinated colour palettes and finishes that include plank vinyl flooring, granite or quartz countertops, soft-close cabinets and under-cabinet lighting in kitchens.
In-house amenities include an elegant lobby with a 24-hour concierge and a grand circular staircase reminiscent of those found in luxury hotels. Situated on the mezzanine level is a library and lounge space with a gas fireplace. There’s also a fully equipped gym, yoga studio and a games room with foosball and billiards tables.
More amenities are found on the ninth floor, where a chic and sophisticated party room provides the perfect spot to host large celebrations or intimate gatherings. Envisioned by Patton Design Studio, the space boasts exquisite wood details, stone accents and small pods of seating illuminated by stunning lighting effects. The amenity spaces are designed to be fluid and harmonious with rooms that transition effortlessly from indoor to outdoor. The landscaped rooftop terrace, for example, flows seamlessly from the indoor lounge and is connected by a beautiful indoor/outdoor bar area. A warm and inviting fireplace with surrounding communal seating provides the focal point and pulls the space together.
Prices at Markham Square start from the $300,000s. To learn more, be sure to register online and visit the sales centre on February 17th for the grand opening celebration.
