Urban living has just got better in Markham. Del Ridge Homes is the company behind the development at Gem Condos, a new sustainable condominium project in Markham. The project, which entered the real estate market in 2015, offers a seamless combination of luxe finishes and environmental friendly lifestyles. Thoughtfully developed to coexist comfortably with parks, ponds, and other natural features in the surrounding area.
One with its green space in Markham, the Gem Condos or Greenlife East Markham, is signature eight-storey mid rise condominium totaling 200 units. The building is designed to help homeowners significantly conserve on their energy consumption, all the while offer suites crafted with functionality in mind. Phase 1 and 2 are both sold out, and were a wild success at the VIP Launch. With quite easily one of lowest prices per square foot in the GTA, the Gem Condos were one of the best value release in Toronto, in recent time.
This condominium takes pride of its Car Share Program. Residents can use electric cars provided. This is Gem’s one step into sustainable living. It will also plant 140,000 trees with Forest Ontario, assigning 317 trees per unit. The owner will get a certificate for the trees, an approach of the condominium to the growing problem of pollution and climate change.
Aside from the Gem Condos’ promotion of green living, their location is as admirable too. Open spaces are everywhere. Brando Park and Milliken Park are nearby. There are also schools nearby. Some of the schools nearby are Markham Gateway Public School, Parkland, Ellen Fairclough, and Middlefield Collegiate. Groceries and mini marts are also nearby, conveniently accessible thru a short walk or minutes-drive. Some of these are Bulk Barn, Sunny Foodmart, Shaafin Halal Meat and Foods Inc., and Khaike Paan. Highway 407 is close to the neighbourhood too.
Food shops, such as Hakka King, Federick, Wow Wing House, Hakka Legend Asian Cuisine Markham, 5 Star Biryani, McDonald’s, Kelsey’s and Original Roadhouse are just minutes away from the condominium. Besides that, residents will not have a hard time choosing where to eat as this neighbourhood offers diverse food.
There are nine offered floor plans featuring a great floor plate of one to three bedroom selections. Suite sizes range from 700 to 1245 square feet and were released at a remarkable $293 per square foot. The second phase of this project, the Gem Condos 2, is nearing completion which is scheduled for Winter 2017. Developed by Del Ridge Homes, some of the builders other notable developments include Ellington Park, Appleby Woods, Prentice Place, and Parkview Place.
