The Watford Group
The Watford Group is a new developer on the scene, and their single ambition is to take the luxury style and aesthetic found throughout the Old World and bring it to the GTA. They’re based out of Markham, and their first project will be located in the preeminent Unionville neighbourhood, which is the perfect choice for a builder who’s trying to capture the beauty of Europe’s stunning architecture.
This real estate developer loves everything about the Old World. The sights, the sounds, but especially the architecture. They have a particular affinity for the mid-rise lofts and apartment buildings that can still be found in central locations in London. These beautiful buildings are proving to stand the test of time, and they still create an imposing aesthetic that’s worthy of replication.
Their first project is located in Unionville — the famous historic district located in Markham. This community already exemplifies much of what this developer is all about because it was founded in 1794, and it still has numerous preserved buildings from that early era.
Markham is on the brink of a tremendous transformation, as it’s fastly becoming renowned for its status as a major hub for tech industries. It’s the headquarters of numerous companies including IBM, AMD, and Motorola, and it’s set to continue growing with the city’s population expected to balloon from 353,000 in 2016 to 535,000 in 2041. The employment is expected to keep growing too with its 167,500 jobs in 2016 projected to grow to 269,200 by 2041.
This dichotomy is one of the most charming things about Markham, and it's also embodied by the premise of this developer’s aesthetic. It’s about creating a juxtaposed combination of old and new, and that can be seen at The Watford. It takes the classic design often seen in London and other famous cities in Europe, but it applies the cutting edge building practices that are found throughout the modern development industry.
One of the most important components of this spectacular building is applying the best quality craftsmanship. They do this because this developer is keenly aware that staying true to these fundamentals is how you build something that stands the test of time.
There’s an underlying goal to building the finest London inspired project in the GTA. They want to offer homes where you can escape time. They offer condos that will make you forget about your long day at work, but also homes that will make you feel as though you’ve traveled back in time to a simpler time before smartphones and social media. These homes are all about making you feel at peace with your surroundings in the moment.
Their first condos will be located directly on Unionville’s Main Street, which means that they’re also surrounded by a whole bunch of amazing culinary options. If you’re in the mood for something casual, then you should head to the Unionville Arms or Jake’s On Main. If you’re interested in something a little more upscale, this new development is just a few steps away from an amazing Italian restaurant called Il Postino.
This developer also understands the importance of building homes that have plenty of transit options. It’s just a reality that young professional couples most likely have to travel to different parts of the city for work, and with new employment hubs cropping up around all of Southern Ontario, it’s not impossible to think that one partner would work in Markham while the other has to travel to Downtown Toronto. For their first project, the Ontario Highway 404 is a vital link into Toronto because it turns into the Don Valley Parkway, which also connect to the Gardiner Expressway.
This developer is all about importing the aesthetic charm of the Old World to the GTA. They’re particularly looking to emulate the stunning mid-rise homes that be found throughout London. This is part of an effort to create homes where people can escape time.
