Top 5 Reasons to Invest in Unionglen Townhomes
Unionglen will be located on the northern edge of Markham, where the neighbourhood of Unionville meets Angus Glen.
Angus Glen was originally a farm that bred Black Angus Cattle and thoroughbred horses, until it was turned into two 18-hole championship golf courses in 1995. This site has been the host of the Canadian Open in 2002, and in 2007. Then in 2015 it acted as a host of the 2015 Pan American Games. Lush and green, Angus Glen is a fixture in the area, and a prime destination for golfers from all over Ontario.
Unionville is a thriving neighbourhood within the city of Markham. Charming, and historic, Unionville was first settled in 1794, and has remained a quaint town within the larger city ever since. Pre-war shops and pubs line idyllic streets, parks are laden with ornate bandstands, and many other historic buildings like churches and mills can be found around every corner. Though now a modern, suburban community, Unionville has maintained its look for decades, and was even featured in television shows, like as a stand-in location for Stars Hollow in Gilmore Girls.
Buyers looking for community events will be pleased to know that Unionville has countless exciting neighbourhood events and festivals, like the Unionville Village Festival, the Unionville Heritage Festival, the Olde Time Christmas Candlelight Parade, the Markham Jazz Festival, the Stiver Mills Farmers' Market and many more.
Parents will be pleased as there are a number of schools within a short distance. From Angus Glen Montessori, Castlemore Public and Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School only a short walk away, to Beckett Farm Public School, Unionville Montessori and a number of other schools within a short drive.
Just across the street, residents will find a series of shops and services, from George's Convenience, and Blue Skies IDA Pharmacy, as well as a TD Canada Trust and the Symposium Cafe, a charming local restaurant. A little further down the road, residents will delight in Burr Oak Plaza, a nearby shopping mall with more restaurants, pharmacies and other convenient services.
Main Street of Unionville is just a short drive away, and makes for an excellent place to spend the day strolling, dining and shopping! With restaurants like Unionville House, Ambiyan Modern Indian Restaurant, and Jakes on Main, there's plenty of places to grab a bite, maybe relax with a pint, and take in the quaint, small-town atmosphere. With many boutique decor, apparel and fashion shops, as well as the McKay Art Centre and the Frederick Horsman Varley Art Gallery, there are plenty of things to do in the historic centre of town!
Unionglen will be a master-planned community featuring wide open spaces and suburban convenience. Families will be pleased to find a number of nearby neighbourhood amenities like the Angus Glen Community Centre, which includes an arena & sport centre, plus the Markham Public Library nearby, as well as a public swimming pool, and conference centre.
Nature is also at residents' front door, with the Angus Glen Golf Course, and Bruce's Mill Conservation park only ten minutes away.

Like many of the more northern communities in the GTA, Markham is a gateway to the entire province. Major highways like the 404 and the 407 pass east-to-west through the entire GTA, and link up to highways like the 400, making short travel to Barrie and the Muskoka region.
Highway 407 in particular is set for a major extension, promising quick travel to communities like Peterborough by 2020.
Driving into Toronto is easy, but an even more convenient solution lies in Markham’s robust transit infrastructure.
Unionville GO station and parking lot is just a twelve minute drive south of Unionglen, making commutes as central as Union Station in Toronto, simple, and affordable. The TTC also has several stops within the community, like Warden Avenue, Birchmount Road, McCowan Road and Markham Road, making North-South commutes seamless.
Travel within the York Region itself (Aurora, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, and Whitchurch-Stouffville) is simple too, with York Region Transit providing unparalleled bus service between the region’s many communities.
And just a few minutes away, the Toronto Buttonville Municipal Airport, permits business commuter traffic to Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.
Greenpark has been in operation for over 50 years. Founded in 1967 by Carlo Baldassarra, an italian immigrant, they are a diverse firm with experience in townhomes, single-family homes and also high-rise developments. With over 55,000 homes in the GTA, Greenpark has been known for their excellence in both design and construction.
Carlo has spent his life focused on family and community engagement, and has been known to contribute directly to his community. One such contribution was hosting the Touched with Hope Gala, at which Mr. Baldassara donated $1 million to the Markham Stouffville Hospital. Carlo hopes to encourage family traditions and sound business ethics as they expand under the collaboration with his sons Mauro, Armando and Michael.
Fieldgate Homes has been active in the GTA for many years. Specializing in master-planned communities, this prolific builder has brought new homes to Markham, Unionville, Richmond Hill, Stouffville, Thornhill, Brampton, Milton, Mississauga, Burlington, Oakville, and even downtown Toronto.
Fieldgate understands that buying a home is a difficult, complicated process, and so they encourage potential buyers to visit their Decor Centre, where buyers can have access to many fashionable and modern products to help them cultivate that feeling of "home".
Their website also features a very robust and handy inclusive guide to home buying. This guide walks buyers through the path to homeownership, explanations of things like equity, credit, and how mortgages work.
Proving over and over that they build quality homes, Fieldgate has a reputation for genuine care for each and every customer.
Markham is set to continue it’s tech-driven expansion into the third decade of the 21st century. The Downtown Markham project is in the beginning stages of rejuvenating a central neighbourhood, laying the foundation for a new urban core with many office buildings and campuses, as well as up to 10,000 new homes, all as part of a master-plan to bring more density to the region.
With a large number of other exciting projects like the Remington Centre, an 800,000 square-foot shopping mall that will be designed to attract tourists from all over, Markham is looking to become a destination City within the larger GTA. These projects, along with the Yamaha Music School, and Markham Movieland, are set to become major draws for the city, and will likely lead to an influx of homebuyers to the area. This means now is a fantastic time to invest in a home in Markham. The foundation has been laid for a new, refocused, sustainable housing market and business sector, and with countless condominium projects in pre-construction phases, Markham is a neighbourhood on the rise!
