(From Toronto Star)
Almost a year ago, The Toronto Star’s NewInHomes reported that The Cadillac Fairview Corporation had purchased Buttonville Airport with the purpose of re-developing the area into a vibrant community. Today, Cadillac Fairview has given us a peek at what their vision is for the 170-acre project.
Cadillac, in conjunction with Markham developers, Armadale Properties Limited, has submitted a secondary plan application to the Town of Markham. The application spells out the transformation of the airport into a major retail, commercial, and residential hub for the city.
“We are excited about this next step and look forward to working with the town of Markham, the Region of York and others having jurisdiction to move this world class project ahead”, said Finley McEwen, Senior Vice President of Development at the Cadillac Fairview Corporation.
“With Buttonville, we are proud to put people, economic growth, and sustainability at the forefront of urban planning”.
