Hold on to your hats folks! The Times Group Corporation are poised to knock their new master-planned community of Uptown Markham right out of the park… the 50 acres of park that borders the south side of this stunning 88 acre development, that is.

With phase 1 nearly selling out in just a couple short months, River Walk East, the second phase of this $2.5 billion project is definitely going to be one of the more sought after locals for Markham’s rapidly growing population. 

In addition to an incredible park that has forested areas, biking and walking paths, and the Rouge River running through it, River Walk East has some very enticing features within walking distance. First off, Uptown Market, the shopping centre next door which will be anchored by Whole Foods, will address the shopping needs of Uptown Markham’s residents. Transit is aways a big selling point for new developments and Uptown Markham will certainly not be left wanting.

Between existing and proposed transit stations, there will not be one spot within the development that is not within a 200 meter walk to transit. And with Highway 7’s transformation into a tree lined boulevard with Viva rapid transit, these walks will always be pleasant. Did we mention that the Unionville GO station and Main Street Unionville are a mere 1 km away?

So what do you do when you’ve done your shopping, hiking, and have had your fill of swimming, working out, or just plain lounging? Why not head to the local stadium to catch a sporting event? That is correct! A brand spanking new arena (bigger than Air Canada Centre) is going to be built just west of the Unionville GO station, on the north side of Highway 407. Maybe you’d rather catch a flick. Well there is also a Cineplex planned  for the area which will be within walking distance of the new development.

There’s a lot more going on in Markham, Canada’s 16th largest city, these days and Times Group clearly has a lot to do with it.
