About The Project
Revolutionizing living in Markham, Origin Lofts brings a unique and special residence to an in-demand area with great shopping, amenities, and transit access. Its soft loft design extricates it from the typical low-rise condominium design, yet it manages to perfectly complement the already establish neighbourhood and community. Soft lofts take the benefits of a traditional loft without the industrial warehouse feel of traditional lofts. You’ll enjoy open-concept living, high ceilings, with huge windows that let in plenty of light no matter the weather. Origin Lofts consists of four blocks totalling 112 units of single and multi-level lofts.
