This helps protect the environment by reducing storm water runoff and avoids the cost associated with using drinking water for irrigation. HRV & Improved air circulation. Your suite is equipped with a fan coil unit complete with an integrated heat recovery ventilator (HRV). Where typical condominiums deliver ventilation air from the corridor under the entry door, at, Minto 30 Roe HRV units deliver filtered outdoor air directly to each suite, providing improved indoor K quality and living comfort. The HRV saves you money by capturing energy from the outgoing exhaust air and transferring it to the incoming outdoor air, reducing heating and cooling costs.

Multi-Chute Recycling. At Minto 30 Roe every floor is equipped with a sealed garbage chute room with a bi-sorter for disposal of organics and recyclables and another chute to dispose of garbage. The chutes are clearly marked simple to use and makes it effortless to divert garbage from landfill.


Efficient Lighting. Your suite is equipped with compact fluorescent lights- These lights last 10 times longer and consume less than a quarter of the energy compared to their incandescent counterparts.

ENERGYSTAR Appliances. ENERGYSTAR appliances are standard in every suite and include stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and front-loading washing machine. ENERGYSTAR qualified products use 30% less energy to do the same job as non-ENERGYSTAR qualified products, saving you money while creating fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

Low Flow Shower Head. A specially designed shower head provides a comfortable shower while using up to 35% less water than a standard showerhead. Hot water is available quickly to your shower, so you won’t need to waste time or water waiting for your shower to warm up.

Low Flow Toilets. Toilets in your suite use a 3 litre single flush allowing you to reduce your water consumption by 50%.


Sub Metering – Water. Your suite’s cold and. hot water are individually metered, ensuring that you only pay for your Use of n-suite water. Typical condominiums charge for utilities in condo fees meaning you pay for water whether you use it or not. At Minto 30 Roe you are rewarded for your conservation efforts.

Sub Metering – Electrical. Your suite’s electricity is individually metered, ensuring that you only pay for what you use.

All-Off Switch & Green Plugs. Simple convenient in-suite lighting control. One flick turns off all fixed lighting, exhaust fans and designated green plugs.

Humidity Control. Washroom exhaust fans are integrated into the HRV system or are automated using humidity sensors to control humidity levels in your suite.

Fresh Air Control of Amenity Ventilation. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is monitored continuously in the regularly used amenity areas The amount of C02 detected lets the ventilation systems know how many people are using the space and delivers the right amount of outdoor air. This maintains high indoor K quality while spaces are in use and saves energy when they are unoccupied.


Building Systems. High-efficiency heating systems reduce energy consumption while generating fewer harmful emissions than a standard condominium building. Reduced energy consumption, non-ozone depleting cooling systems, and lower green house gas (GHG) emissions directly contribute to a healthier environment.


Green Roof. Combating the urban heat island effect, Minto 30 Roe green roof will contribute to a more sustainable city. Featuring 100% native and adaptive plant species, the green roof will contribute to storm water management requirements and where possible will be located to enhance views from residential suites.

Low Emitting Materials. Environmentally friendly underlays, hardwood, ceramic flooring and low toxicity paints in your suite significantly reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air you breathe.

General Overview

Downtown Markham is a $3 billion, 20-year development project that will  occupy 98 hectares
(243 acres) of land in the heart of Markham, between  Highway 407 and the Rouge Valley,
and from Warden Avenue on the West to  Unionville GO Station, near Kennedy Road

Adhering to the principles of the Smart Growth Development, Downtown Markham  will be
mixed-use zone, rejecting the trend that separates housing from jobs  and retail stores. All
personal, family and employment needs will be  available in the community

The entire project is designed to be environmentally sensitive, pedestrian  friendly and transit-Oriented,
with short walking distances and easy access to  all residential, commercial zones
and transit stops

Downtown Markham will become home to 9,500 residents living in 3,900 new  condominiums
and townhouses

More than 16,000 people will work in approximately 4.2 million square feet of  office space.

The overall Markham Centre area will eventually accommodate 25,000  residents
The Community

Master Plan Community

Check out Downtown Markham’s master plan community.  Downtown Markham                lies between Highway 407 and the Rouge River. It extends from Warden               Avenue on the west to the GO Transit rail line and the Unionville               GO Station on the east (see video).

Downtown Markham  Shopping

Shopping in Downtown Markham will be open air, because all the stores are  located individually on streets, not far from homes, jobs, entertainment, parks  and other typical urban amenities. However, it won’t have a faux style, so no  one will have to wonder exactly when Markham’s past included a Mediterranean  period.

But because this downtown is being built from scratch, there are  opportunities to apply some of the most successful mall and lifestyle centre  retailing principles.

For instance, the main shopping street and the  large open square that it leads to will be established as private condominium  space under the management of the project developer, even though for all intents  and purposes they are part of the public realm.

This will allow the  street and square to be built and maintained to higher than usual municipal  standards. More frequent cleaning, trash removal and snow clearing are obvious  examples. Preventing skateboarders from crashing into strollers and keeping  sidewalks free of beggars are behind-the-scenes benefits to insure a comfortable  and secure environment for all.

Economic Development

Economic development is not just about land, jobs and taxes. It’s about the  development of an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable  community,” noted Steven Chait, Director of Economic development for Town of  Markham.

In any community powered by the knowledge economy, quality of life is  essential to attracting and retaining a skilled labour force. The centre of  Markham has long been the proverbial “hole in the donut” for Markham. Rather  than engage in haphazard development to fill land, the Town purposely took its  time developing what would become the new Downtown Markham into an area that  will attract knowledge workforce from far and wide. Downtown Markham will  feature many unique sustainable development and quality of design elements:

  • Rather than building a park into a suburb, homes and businesses are built  into the natural landscape’s rivers, streams and numerous green spaces.
  • Features that boost quality of life, including beautiful public spaces and  cultural attractions
  • Easy access to all amenities and commercial locations by foot, pedal, public  transit or car

Twenty years from now, we will look upon Downtown Markham as the ideal  example of a vibrant community powered by a world leading knowledge economy.  With the right pieces – business, culture, recreation – Downtown Markham will be  Ontario’s economic juggernaut.

Green Building  Development

People are increasingly aware that their actions directly affect their  environment, and desire living and working spaces designed with their well-being  and the health of our environment in mind.

The Remington Group sought to create an environmentally sustainable mixed use  land development that delivers benefits in the long and short-term.
Downtown  Markham’s first residential development, Rouge Bijou, will qualify for LEED  (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building certification.  The LEED Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus-based standard  for creating high quality, sustainable buildings. Building processes and  materials, such as carpet and paint, must meet specific standards in order to be  LEED certified. Rouge Bijou also addresses LEED’s other requirements, including  a sustainable building site, indoor environmental quality and efficient access  to water and energy supplies.

This significant investment is more expensive than run-of-the-mill  developments and won’t turn a quick buck for The Remington Group. The  environmentally friendly design will however deliver in the long-term with  substantially lower operating costs and a better quality of life for all  Downtown Markham’s inhabitants.
