Origin Lofts is a new condo and townhouse development by Nascent Developments and The Sher Corporation currently in preconstruction at Bur Oak Avenue, Markham.
You’re an original. A non-conformist with your own ideas. When others zig, you zag. And when it comes to the place you call home, you need something that’s unique and special as you are.
That place is Origin – it’s the start of a revolution in urban loft living in the heart of Markham.
This sleek community of 112 lofts is unlike anything the area has seen before. Inspired by modern European design, it features generous 10ft ceilings and multi-level layouts with an industrial aesthetic – exposed concrete, high ceilings with huge glass walls that flood the spaces with natural light. Suites feature Italian kitchens with optional islands, plenty of bathrooms, generous closets, stunning open layouts and countless luxury touches.
The community is made up of two elements: an eight-storey mid-rise building fronting McCowan Rd with 62 single-level urban lofts with retail at grade and well articulated indoor amenities.
Three low-rise buildings with 50 lofts, cluster around an immaculate courtyard, offer spacious two-and three-level lofthouses with full-width backyards and stunning oversized rooftop terraces – perfect for entertaining, relaxing, and enjoying the outdoors.
The mix of loft forms offer texture and variety, creating a beautiful community that’s as unique as you are.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer looking for cutting-edge design, a couple looking to downsize, or a family looking for a place that can comfortably accommodate multiple generations, Origin offers the perfect place to call home – and exceed every expectation.
Combining contemporary city style with an amazing location close to shopping, transit, and everything else you need, Origin brings modern urban loft living to one of Markham’s most desirable communities.
Origin Lofts Site Plan
Inspired by a hard loft – warehouses that have been repurposed for residential use – a soft loft has all the benefits of a traditional hard loft with none of the drawbacks of its past history.
Soft lofts are built with a decidedly modern, and industrial vibe. Think exposed concrete, open-concept living, high ceilings, with huge windows that let in plenty of light, that will take your breath away.
Based on brand new construction, spaces are more thoughtfully planned, and are covered by the Tarion Warranty Program.
Soft lofts such as Origin are built in higher demand areas with good shopping, amenities, transit access and an established sense of neighbourhood and community. Hard lofts are often in industrial areas.
Origin Lofts provides the perfect combination. The best features of a hard loft are fused with a typical condo to elevate the urban living experience.
Origin Lofts will be built to LEED™ Silver standards, which means the community is environmentally-friendly and sustainable in every way, from building materials to landscaping to operations.
Gardens and greenery offset carbon emissions and provide lush, beautiful views. Live green moss wraps exterior architectural elements while a stunning living wall provides a soft scent and clean air to breathe in the lobby of the mid-rise loft building.
Green roofs insulate buildings to reduce energy use and heating and cooling costs, reduce storm water runoff, prevent heat island effect, re-oxygenate the air and help process airborne toxins.
The result is a beautiful community that does everything it can to reduce its own carbon footprint – and help its residents live sustainable and healthy lives every day.
SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION, ENCOURAGED BY DESIGN.
The community is built in a transit hub– several municipal and regional transit options are located nearby, making getting around town without a car easy.
To encourage sustainable travel, each home is provided with a York Region Transit pass by York Region to promote environmentally friendly means of travel to your desired destinations.
The mid-rise building also offers plenty of bike storage for residents and visitors, and each multi-storey loft has its own easy-access bike locker at grade. For the Origin Loft residents, a fully-equipped bike repair is available as well as a pet washing station. And if you do happen to need a car and don’t have one at your disposal, Origin Loftsprovides access to a car share program on site – just rent it using your phone app, hop in and go!
