REVOLUTIONARY 800,000 SQ. FT. MALL COMING TO MARKHAM
Class. Sophistication. High-fashion. These are only some of the words that can describe the new up-and-coming landmark shopping centre coming to Downtown Markham: The Remington Centre.
The Remington Group is working together with world-class Kohn Partnership Architects to develop this luxurious centre, with proposals that include high ceilings, a canvas of interwoven bright colours, and contemporary finishes. The Remington Group legacy is familiar to most investors in Markham. The Remington Group develops a mix of residential and commercial properties across Ontario and is the leading developer in Downtown Markham. Their vision has one end goal: to transform the area into a unique urban centre that exhibits the diversity of its residents. With over 60 years of experience in development, The Remington Group has genuinely transformed the Downtown Markham area into a reservoir of entertainment facilities and cultural centres with state-of-the-art amenities.
The Remington Centre will replace the former Market Village Mall, which was closed on March 1, 2018. With Market Village’s demolition that commenced in late fall of 2018, construction of the Remington Centre is set to begin. No completion date has been announced yet.
This project will also include a gorgeous addition of two sophisticated condominium towers: The Grand Residences at Remington Centre. The proposal consists of two towers of 25 and 30 storeys over a six-storey podium, totalling an outstanding of 450 residential units. The units will include two-storey penthouses and townhouses, with some including a rooftop terrace. Residents will have easy access to the mall, as the condominium towers are planned to be connected to the mall through an outdoor plaza.
The proposal for The Remington Centre isn’t your typical shopping mall, but it plans to heighten the shopping experience of Markham residents by including entertainment and cultural presentations. Connected to Pacific Mall, a day spent at the Remington Centre is sure to be an impressive and breathtaking experience. Shop at over 700 boutique and retail stores, enjoy the live dance performances on the 360-degree stage, or visit the 100,000 sq. ft. Indoor Night Market.
The Remington Centre is one of the first malls to encompass such unique amenities, and so there is no doubt that it will ignite a revolution in shopping mall design. The Remington Group also plans to build the mall to be environmentally friendly. Proposals include the use of LEED Standard Design, natural lighting, and geothermal heating and cooling. Sounds like the ultimate shopping destination!
The mall will be nestled at the northeast corner of Steeles Avenue and Kennedy Road, at 4390 Steeles Avenue East, only an 8-minute drive from Downtown Markham. The convenient location of the mall eases the commuting experience for tourists and Markham citizens coming to the Remington Centre. There are many bus stations nearby, or if you’re planning to drive or bike, there’s expected to be 3,428 parking spaces, as well as 289 bicycle parking spaces.
The Remington Centre is a revolution in shopping mall design, and it will no doubt attract tourists from all around the province. If you have already invested in Markham, this is good news for you. People from all around Ontario will be seeking properties in Markham after the economic boost this project will bring and the many tourists that it will attract. If you’re looking to invest, this is a perfect time!
