Unique, modern, cutting edge. These are just some of the thoughts that may come to mind when you see Origin Lofts by The Sher Corporation and Nascent Developments. Described as a revolution in urban loft living, the community of 112 lofts is unlike anything that Markham has seen before.
Toronto’s RAW Design Architects designed the building with the same spirit of creativity and innovation it’s brought to the numerous award-winning buildings the firm has designed across Canada. Combining sleek lines, modern materials and an eye catching colour palette, the architects have created a clean and bold exterior design that’s sure to animate the residential market in Markham.
Origin Lofts consists of an eight-storey mid-rise fronting McCowan Road which houses 62 single-level urban lofts with retail at grade. The western portion of the site will see three, five-storey low-rise buildings clustered around an immaculate zen-inspired courtyard. Inside are 50 residences with spacious two- and three-level lofthouses, full-width backyards and oversized rooftop terraces for al fresco dining and entertaining.
Elegantly manicured and landscaped grounds surround the buildings, including green moss wrapped around exterior elements to create unique, organic architectural forms. The zen-inspired courtyard is the focal point and will feature pollinating tree species and monarch butterfly-friendly plants such as echinacea, vibrant goldenrod and milkweed.
Priced from the mid-$500s, the suites at Origin boast spacious, open concept layouts inspired by modern European design. Soaring 10-foot ceilings provide an open and airy feel while expansive glass walls flood interior spaces with natural light. Some suites even offer stunning 20-foot ceilings in the living room. Plus, exposed concrete elements add a touch of industrial aesthetic and a nod to authentic loft living. Standard features include stylish and functional kitchens with optional islands, spa-like bathrooms, generously-sized closets and luxury finishes.
Located at McCowan Road, just north of Bur Oak Avenue, Origin Lofts is situated close to a variety of shops, schools and amenities. Within walking distance is Williamstown Plaza where you’ll find a Freshco supermarket, convenience stores and cafes. The Markville Shopping Centre is also nearby and offers over one million square feet of retail space including anchor tenants Hudson’s Bay, Winners/HomeSense, Walmart and Saks Off 5th.
In an effort to encourage sustainable travel, residents will have access to bike storage, an on-site car share program and each home will be provided with a York Region Transit pass. In addition to York Transit, residents will be within proximity to three GO Train stations and will have direct access to TTC bus route 129A which connects York Region with Toronto.
