MARKHAM, ONT. — The Union Village community, created in collaboration by Minto Communities and Metropia, launched recently in Markham, Ont.
The initial phase one launch saw more than 330 homes sold over a four-day period through a mix of single-family homes, back-to-back townhomes, rear-lane townhomes, and traditional townhomes, indicates a release.
Once completed, Union Village will consist of 1,200 homes in a variety of architectural styles, including French, Second Empire, French Country, Period Revival/Tudor, Canadiana, Modern, and West Coast Contemporary. It will also offer easy connections to Unionville, Main Street and the 400-series highways. Union Village consists of two parcels of development, split down the middle by the Bruce Creek.
Maximizing on the natural landscapes of the area, Bruce Creek and its valley are being restored and included as part of an extensive pedestrian and cycling trail system. In addition, Union Village features preserved wetlands, several new parks, playgrounds and the incorporation of a century-old Bur Oak tree as a park focal point and gathering place for community members.
Home sizes range from 1,267 to 4,508 square feet. All interior floor plans have been designed with input by Feng Shui master, Paul Ng.
Sustainable features within homes include Energy Star for New Homes certification for better energy efficiency, LED lighting, water efficient fixtures, low VOC paint and Green Label Plus-certified carpeting for indoor air quality, and conveniently placed conduits to support future EV charging and roof solar panels.
