A developer taking Markham to the Ontario Municipal Board over a massive development at Hwy. 7 and Warden Avenue has scaled back its plans, the town's development services committee learned this week.
The Times Group Corp. is now proposing to build 16 condos at 16 to 18 storeys as opposed to 21 condos at 20 storeys on land adjacent to Sheridan Nurseries in the area of Markham Centre.
They have removed a tower at Birchmount Road and Hwy. 7 and added a second office building. The size of a school it plans to build has been increased.
Times Group owns 88 acres of land here, of which 20 is Rouge River valley land. The proposed plan will use just over 35 per cent of the parcel for development, just under 50 per cent for parks and green space and 15 per cent for public roads.
