Downtown Markham’s amazing first phase of retail captured Maple Leaf Gold for Design & Development at the ICSC Canadian Shopping Centre Awards on Wednesday, September 21, 2016.
The two buildings at 169 and 179 Enterprise Boulevard, in the heart of The Remington Group’s 243-acre mixed-use development Downtown Markham, stood apart from the competition for its impressive high-density design, providing the best in live, work and play offerings. Home to 25 stores, including major entertainment and lifestyle tenants like Cineplex and GoodLife Fitness, as well as a variety of dining options, the retail space forms the hub of this new dynamic, pedestrian-driven urban centre.
The 280,000 square foot office/retail building, including 180,000 square feet of primarily street oriented retail space, was designed by Quadrangle Architects in association with GH+A and Petroff Partnership Architects.
The buildings are also home to the Remington Contemporary Art Gallery, the epicentre of a $20 million public art program. Visitors can enjoy an impressive collection of public art on three levels, including the Underground Art exhibit in the parking garage.
With the opening of the Marriott Hotel and Signature Condominiums in spring 2017, Downtown Markham will unveil an additional 40,000 square feet of retail space. At full build out, the project will boast more than 2 million square feet of retail, in addition to 3.4 million square feet of office/commercial space and be home to nearly 15,000 residents.
The ICSC Canadian Shopping Centre Awards honour the industry’s best and brightest. The program brings information and insight to the entire industry on what it takes to achieve high levels of accomplishment and success. Awards are given for outstanding achievement in marketing and design/development of retail properties and retail store design.
