Times Group Corp. is elevating the economic viability of Markham, Ontario, with River Walk East.
TIMES GROUP CORP. has made a name for itself throughout the Greater Toronto Area in the last 25 years with a reputation for excellence in real estate development. The company has added another gem to its portfolio with the delivery of the River Walk East condominium project in the Uptown Markham development.
River Walk East is the second phase of the Times Group Corp.’s Uptown Markham develpment and features three-, eight- and 20-story structures that houses suites ranging in size between 527 to 1,024 square feet.
“With its gracious European-inspired exterior, the residence will offer a carefree condominium lifestyle with an
outstanding selection of suite designs – all energy-efficient LEED standards,” Times Group Corp. says. “Overlooking the valley, River Walk East is located directly besides the centrally situated park within the Uptown Markham community, and which will be the ‘bridge’ that connects the River Valley to Highway 7 – a beautiful landscaped venue for local festivities and municipal events, outdoor markets, art exhibits, and public art.”
Uptown Square is a European-style plaza that blends residential with retail components. Over 160,000 square feet of shops, services and supermarkets opened in fall 2012.
“A pinnacle of achievement in the company’s 25-year history, Times Group is proud of the part is playing in the genesis of Uptown Markham – a legacy development built to the highest and most energy-efficient LEED standards. It is fast becoming a major focal and social center of attraction in Markham.”
Residents have access to a communal party room that is built to the most luxurious standards. The room features a fireplace and a bar where patrons can visit. A catering kitchen allows residents to host private dinner parties, as well. The room offers access to a private outdoor patio.
Residents of River Walk East also have access to a spa-like swimming pool appointed with ceramics and floor-to-ceiling windows. The pool is surrounded by cabana-style seating and also has access to the partyroom patio.
River Walk East residents have access to the development’s exercise facility and yoga/tai chi room. The facility features treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, rowing machines and weights.
“There’s everything [residents] could ask for in a gym but in a much more
luxurious environment, with the convenience of being right at [their] home and without the crowds or membership fees,” Times Group Corp. says.
River Walk East is part of the Uptown Markham development. This development features 88 acres dedicated to residents’ health, enjoyment and recreation. The development includes almost 50 acres of green space winding through the Rouge River Valley area.
According to Times Group Corp., the vision for this master-planned community is to significantly contribute to the continued economic growth of Markham and support sustainable condominium living with its LEED Gold standards. The company is focused on energy efficiency, indoor air quality, water efficiency and other environmentally conscious features that confirm Time Group’s commitment to building residential communities that are sustainable and green.
“We’re bringing quality residences and premiere retail and office spaces to the Markham community at Uptown Markham,” Renato Iamonaco, design manager for Times Group Corp., said in a statement. “The vision was to build a place where residents can enjoy lush green spaces in their own backyard while being in direct access to major roadways, VIVA transit and a plethora of amenities and conveniences.”
According to Times Group Corp., the mid-rise and low-rise buildings that make up the site are elegant, energy maintenance-free and affordable in a family friendly community.
