Gallery Towers launch with VIP broker event
October 17, 2022
The Remington Group recently unveiled its highly anticipated new highrise project, Gallery Towers, to an excited crowd of realtors at the Downtown Markham Presentation Centre. Anticipation was high for the long-awaited first set of towers. The newest district for Markham’s dynamic urban core will set the standard for sophisticated city living.
The broker presentation exemplified how these luxury residences will mirror the culturally rich surroundings in downtown Markham. Linked at ground level by an exceptional seven-storey podium, these towers have been crafted by world-renowned architect BDP Quadrangle with no detail spared. Suite offerings include open-concept one-, two- and three-bedroom residences with den options and spacious terraces, in addition to design-forward two-storey residences, graced with high-quality finishes and features.
Among some of the top-tier finishes are nine-ft. ceiling heights (10 ft. in the penthouses), roomy balconies and terraces, contemporary flooring throughout, finely crafted kitchen cabinetry with full height uppers and a multi-function kitchen island, dining space and extra storage with integrated appliances. These sumptuous spaces will be infused with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows, and include generously sized primary bedroom suites and oversized living areas, to complement a vibrant urban lifestyle.
At the event, the presentation highlighted Gallery Tower’s opulent design and the incorporation of refined elegance, starting right at ground level. An extraordinary welcome awaits upon entry into the artful lobby, a true showpiece of design and luxury, from the sculptured light fixture to the modern seating vignettes and a full-service concierge to facilitate your every day-to-day need.
All were abuzz with the reveal of the beautifully landscaped seventh-floor terrace, which features decadent indoor and outdoor amenities, including a state-of-the-art outdoor fitness studio. Residents can jack up their heart rates with a high intensity workout or channel their inner Zen in the yoga studio. With an outdoor dog walk and an accompanying dog wash station, what more can you or your four-legged friend require? The canopied outdoor terrace presents a serene setting to socialize while shielded from the sun, with al fresco barbecue areas, complete with dining tables and comfy lounge seating.
The games lounge is a perfect place to watch your favourite sporting event, enjoy a drink, play a board game or game of billiards, all in luxurious style. The elegant dining lounge is designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. Guests will be impressed with the unique art and modern furnishings, a perfect setting for any occasion.
Gallery Towers is truly special inside and out, its appeal only enhanced by its location. Invited guests at the broker launch event had an opportunity to learn all about downtown Markham, an art-infused, 243-acre master-planned urban centre and growing community. Seamlessly connected to public transit and major roadways, downtown Markham is also adjacent to the protected greenspace of the Rouge River, providing a rich assembly of natural, cultural and pastoral landscapes. The river system provides a connection to Rouge River Park, North American’s largest urban national park, with a regional network of more than 200 km of walking and cycling trails.
Combine that with more than 500,000 existing sq. ft. of retail and commercial space, including the award-winning 200-plus room Marriott Hotel, along with 100,000 sq. ft. of fitness facilities and you’ll see why it is a community like no other. Within walking distance to Cineplex Cinemas Markham and VIP Theatres, the trendiest restaurants, technology hubs and multicultural, family-friendly programming, making it a city within a city.
Woven throughout downtown Markham is a $30-million public art initiative, cleverly integrated into the public spaces throughout, making the entire community a gallery without walls. Residents and visitors of this thriving neighbourhood can expect to encounter traditional and untraditional forms of art based on themes of sustainability and surrealism. Why look any further?
Gallery Towers will be just steps away from York University’s new Markham Centre Campus, the first public university in York Region. When it opens in 2024, MCC will feature a vertical campus designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects that will become integrated with the area’s network of commerce, athletics, arts and entrepreneurial communities. The $275.5-million built form will accommodate 4,200 students in its first phase with the flexibility to respond to future growth demands.
Community of change-makers
The new campus promises to become a community of change-makers, fulfilling future labour market demands and civic leadership by giving future students the skills required for economic competitiveness and community development in Markham, York Region and across Ontario. It will also provide 400 new jobs, enhancing the opportunity to live, play and work in downtown Markham.
Inside the VIP broker launch, lunch was served alongside a presentation that was followed with a Q&A about all things downtown Markham. The upbeat event succeeded in generating enthusiasm for Gallery Towers, while educating guests on what’s to come for downtown Markham and the vision brought on by industry leaders The Remington Group.
