As provinces begin to ease pandemic lockdown restrictions, signs of the new construction real estate market moving forward continue to emerge. Many developers have recently reopened sales centres and have adopted new health and safety measures for in-person appointments. Some developments, like Minto Communities’ Union Village in Markham have even sold out of their latest releases. The community, which is jointly developed by Minto Communities and Metropia, released 71 homes last weekend and quickly sold out within two days.

“This past weekend — June 13th to 14th — at our Union Village community, we released 71 homes to the public and sold every single one of them,” said Justin Bossio, Senior Sales Manager at Minto Communities Canada. “Given the current climate and uncertainty surrounding the housing market, we are extremely proud and happy to have sold out this release in one weekend.”


Initially launched in February, the first phase of Union Village received an overwhelming response from homebuyers who appreciated the development’s collection of home designs, lush greenspaces and family-friendly streetscapes. Located at 16th Avenue and Kennedy Road, the master-planned community will consist of approximately 1,200 homes over multiple phases, with the initial phase offering single-family homes, back-to-back townhomes, rear-lane townhomes and traditional townhomes.


Union Village was designed to emphasize the beauty of its natural surroundings and places nature at centre-stage with sprawling parkland, walking trails, preserved wetlands and neighbourhood landmarks including a century-old bur oak tree. The site consists of two parcels of development, split down the middle by Bruce Creek, which itself is being restored and included as part of an extensive pedestrian and cycling trail system.


More amenities are just minutes away in Unionville, a charming heritage district dotted with boutique shops, cafes and recreational amenities situated along its renowned Main Street. Families will also appreciate the many elementary, secondary and postsecondary schools in the area including Unionville Montessori School, Beckett Farm Public School, St. Matthew Catholic Elementary School and Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School.


In addition to its prime location, Union Village boasts a stunning collection of homes that offer a variety of architectural elevations, open-concept layouts and green technology features. Available design styles include French, Second Empire, French Country, Period Revival/Tudor, Canadiana, Modern and West Coast Contemporary. Sustainable features within the homes include LED lighting, water-efficient fixtures, low VOC paint, Green Label Plus-certified carpeting for indoor air quality, and conveniently placed conduits to support future EV charging and solar roof panels.


Inside, the homes offer functional spaces with expansive living rooms, gourmet kitchens and generously-sized bedrooms. To create harmonious living spaces with ideal energy flow, each home has been designed with input from feng shui master, Paul Ng.
