This is not true. 500m to future subway, 550m to Walmart, 1km to AMC 30.

‘Mini Manhattan’ approved

But Richmond Hill opposes Markham’s desire to move ahead with Langstaff Gateway

By David Fleischer|Jun 29, 2011 - 11:30 AM






Quote:
Markham can finally move forward with what its mayor describes as “the leading urban growth centre in North America” but not everyone is happy about it.

Regional council gave its approval last week to Markham’s secondary plan for the Langstaff Gateway.
The approval allows developers and the town to move forward with the first phase, totalling 5,000 units, on the island of land between Bayview Avenue and Yonge Street, south of Hwy. 407.
Quote:
The growth centre is one of 25 earmarked by the province for high-density development, but it’s the only one split between two municipalities, roughly bisected by Hwys. 7, 407 and the hydro corridor. The confluence of transit — Viva, YRT and a future subway and rapid transit along Hwy. 407 — has lead to planners envisioning it as a “Union Station North,” with densities exceeding the provincial minimums by as much as 500 per cent.

When fully developed decades from now, the entire site should house about 48,000 residents and 30,000 jobs.
Quote:
Richmond Hill already approved 2,000 units and Markham can soon go forward with 5,000 more along with crucial infrastructure such as new roads.

When the Yonge subway extension is announced, another 2,000 units will be available across the site but the highest densities will only be achieved when the subway opens, followed by the launch of the 407 Transitway bus service.

The plan includes numerous sustainable features including on-site energy, a rehabilitation of Pomona Creek in Thornhill and a target of up to 70 per cent of trips taking place by transit rather than cars.

More on Langstaff Gateway:


http://homesandcondosblog.com/home/c...eway-3327.html

COMING SOON: LANGSTAFF GATEWAY

Quote:
Langstaff Gateway is a development by the Town of Markham, in conjunction with a number of separate landowners between both Yonge and Bayview Avenues, just south of the Highway 407.

Town council, last week, gave its approval for the town to move forward with phase one of Langstaff Gateway. The approval further allows the city and developers to sell and market the first phase of this incredible development.
Quote:
Phase 1 will see 7,000 units and 1,790 jobs come to the immediate area. Langstaff Gateway’s long-term plan sees a multitude of low and high rise developments coming to the area, totaling over 48,000 new residents, with 30,000 jobs coming to the area, when Phase four is completed. There will be two separate Retail clusters in the area, with SilverCity move theatres already on board.
Quote:
The area will focus on a livable, transit focused community. The area will be linked by a network of parks and open spaces that run the length of the site. More than that, developments that sit on parks will be low density properties with retail and commercial aspects.

I don't know how they will be able to move forward with this until GO electrification is done. This line is supposed to be 2 way/all day service by 2015 but Electrification won't happen that fast (even 12 hours of hourly service in addition to the 4*1/2 hour rush service currently in effect will mean 30+ trains). There is also a dozen freight trains and the 2 ONR trains running every day on the rails that bisect this zone.

This Langstaff gateway project is increasable, reminds me of a project set to take off in Edmonton 6 years ago. I believe it was called century city, but I think it ever went anywhere. Hope this one fly’s.

Brampton greenlights redevelopment

Published On Wed Aug 10 2011
San Grewal
Urban Affairs Reporter



Quote:
With the biggest project in Brampton’s history hanging in the balance, Mayor Susan Fennell slammed down her gavel Wednesday and yelled, “I take great exception to your insinuation that my vote is for sale.”

Four hours later, she cast the deciding vote in a 6-5 council decision to allow developer Dominus to begin a redevelopment of the city’s ageing downtown core that could cost more than half a billion dollars.
Quote:
The redevelopment plan is to include a large city hall expansion, office and retail space, a new library and parking. However, what was approved Wednesday only guarantees the first phase of three in the Dominus plan: the bigger city hall, some retail and some of the parking, at a cost of $205 million.

It’s unclear whether the other two phases, which some councillors argued include the elements that would really animate the city centre, will ever be built.
Quote:
Council is now in the unusual position of having voted for a massive project without even beginning to discuss how to pay for it. Construction is set to begin in late October.
Quote:
It remains unclear if Wednesday’s vote ties the city to Dominus beyond the first phase. The company’s estimate would put the total cost of all three phases at over $500 million, when the same finance rates built into the first phase are applied.
Quote:
Meanwhile, Brampton’s downtown has continued to deteriorate, looking more like the tired strip of a sleepy small town than the centre of a city of half a million people, the 10th largest in the country.

Residents are finally going to get a downtown redevelopment. Even if it’s not the one some wanted, or at a cost they were willing to pay.

Condo to kickstart Vaughan’s downtown plan

Patty Winsa
Urban Affairs Reporter




Quote:
Vaughan is a city without a downtown, but on Wednesday, its mayor will announce that a development deal has been struck to create one.

Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua will unveil plans for a five-condo residential development just east of Jane St. on Hwy. 7, in the heart of what is envisioned as the city’s new metropolitan centre.
Quote:
After years of struggling to develop the area, the city is taking its first steps forward, largely due to the 8.6 kilometre Spadina subway extension, which will end here when it’s finished in 2015.
Quote:
“Once the subway comes, it will be like Sheppard in North York where you see the continual redevelopment of buildings that are in line with subway densities,” says DiMascio, a partner in Urban Strategies Inc.

Already one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, Vaughan’s population is expected to reach 420,000 by 2030. Plans for the new downtown call for the creation of 12,000 residential units and a total of 11,500 jobs by 2031.
Quote:
The 37-storey building — called Expo-1 and the first part of Expo City — will be finished by 2014 and will be minutes away from the northern terminus of the Spadina subway extension. Amenities include shops, trails and parks.

Booming 905 condo sales outstrip Toronto

September 22, 2011 16:09:00
Susan Pigg
Business Reporter


Quote:
But Peter Cortellucci, vice president of Corel Group, was so excited about his company’s new condo project — the 37-storey, first phase of the massive new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre development — he pushed ahead early.

Thousands of would-be buyers packed the Corel Group’s two full-scale model units at Highway 7 and Jane St. By the end of August, almost 70 per cent of the 337 units were snapped up.
Quote:
The Expo Condos — the first of five highrises towers within easy reach of the subway extension to York University — helped new condos sales hit record levels in the 905 region in August, outstripping condo sales in the 416 for the first time.

Expo, along with other new projects that opened for sale in Oakville and Markham in August, saw condo sales jump 105 per cent from the same period a year ago, according to figures released Thursday by the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD.)
Quote:
New home sales were up 48 per cent in the 905 region over August, 2010, according to market research by RealNet Inc.

A total of 2,011 new condos were sold across the GTA in August, 1,185 of them in the 905 region compared to 826 in Toronto.
Quote:
Condo sales were up more than 1,000 per cent in Oakville and 664 per cent in York region thanks to a few big projects that sold out quickly in August, said Dupuis.

New condo sales were up just 10.1 per cent in Toronto after a very strong year, he noted.
Quote:
The new projects are largely the result of the provincial push for the regions to intensify development, low interest rates and the creation of new infrastructure, such as the Spadina subway extension to York University, slated to open in 2015, said Dupuis.

As those new 905 units, many of them substantially bigger and less expensive than downtown Toronto condos, are going up for sale, it’s giving young and first-time buyers the option to both work and live in the 905 regions, rather than commute from downtown condos, said Myers.
Quote:
Dupuis agreed, adding that while he expects sales in the 905 regions to remain strong through September, more Toronto projects are likely to come on the market this fall which could return the city to condo sales dominance again.
