The project will house four condominium residences that range in size from 10 to 15 storeys, along with a collection of two-storey live-work townhomes. But it’s the specific elements within the development that make it stand out even more. In order to foster a strong sense of community, each building will be linked by walking paths and a two-acre central park with a landscaped courtyard and seating area.
Those aren’t the only green features within the development. Fontana will boast LEED Silver certification, meaning the project will save 35 per cent more energy than those built to the national energy code. Each suite will also come with individually metered hydro thanks to “Smart Meter” technology, along with a wide-range of energy-efficient appliances. Other high-quality features and finishes include granite kitchen countertops, porcelain wall tiles and stainless steel appliances.
The building amenities are just as impressive. Residents will come home to a well-designed two-storey lobby outfitted with elegant furnishings and vibrant artwork. When not in their suite, homeowners can entertain guests in the building’s spacious party room or dip into the indoor swimming pool and whirlpool. The development will also house a multi-purpose room with a half-basketball court, as well as fitness centre and yoga room.
Situated on the corner of Warden Avenue and Highway 7, residents will be surrounded by a wealth of conveniences, some of which are still in the making. One of the most prominent is the up-and-coming York University campus that will be situated in the heart of the new Markham Centre, which neighbours Ontario’s big transit investments and is adjacent to the Markham Pan Am Centre.
Prices for available suites start from $308,900 with townhomes start from $620,000. Units range in size from 650 to 1,578 square feet.
