Location highlights: The Mark Condominiums will be located in the established, yet growing city of Markham at 9560 Markham Road near Bur Oak Avenue across the street from the Mount Joy Go Station. Today Markham is often referred to as the “Silicon Valley of the North”, and has the greatest concentration of high tech and life science companies in Canada. It is home to Canadian industry leaders, including IBM Canada, Sun Microsystems of Canada, AMD, Apple Canada, Hewlitt Packard, Compaq Canada and many more. Yet to balance this fast-paced technological growth, there are heritage streets, farmer’s markets, museums, art galleries, community festivals and traditions to preserve the quaint old town feel of Markham, which draws so many families to build their lives here. Main Street Markham, with its restored historical buildings, is a popular destination with unique shops, live performance theatres and a variety of restaurants. An abundance of parklands, ponds, walking trails, sports fields and community centres offer numerous options to appeal to all ages and interests. Other great neighbourhood features include Bur Oak Secondary School and other highly rated public schools, the renowned Angus Glen Golf Club, premier shopping at Markville Mall, and the award-winning Markham Stouffville Hospital - a state-of-the-art facility and one of the top performing hospitals in Canada.
