One can easily see that Markham is a very developed township, with a population of over 300,000 (according to the 2011 Stats Can Census) and expansive commercial and residential development. But what many do not know is that Markham is one of Canada’s most significant high-tech epicenters, housing over 400 corporate head offices, including global giants Apple Inc, American Express and IBM Canada. A quick comparison of numbers from 2006 and 2011 shows just how much and quickly Markham has been developing: an increase of 15.3 percent, or approximately 40,000. Now with the construction of Downtown Markham well under way, a vibrant community that is slated to include over 2 million square feet of retail and dining, myriad of entertainment options including a 20,000 multi-purpose recreational and special events venue and movie theatre, and over 10,000 luxury towns and condos, the value of Markham’s real estate is becoming ever increasingly great.
Markham is certainly no exception to the saying “Location, location, location!” Speak to a Century 21 King’s Quay real estate representative today to find out why Markham may just be where you’ll want to call home.
