Main Street Unionville Project Area Map

Project Description

Main Street Unionville is a heritage village that is a regional destination while also serving local communities. The historic buildings and the surrounding landscape transform visitors from their busy daily lives to an area where they can appreciate the history of the community while enjoying the unique retail stores and world class cuisine.

Since 2013, the City of Markham has carried out a number of studies to guide the future development and enhancement on Main Street Unionville.

Vision Planning

The Main Street Unionville Community Vision Plan (2015) created a future blueprint of Main Street Unionville. The Vision Plan identified challenges and opportunities in reimaging the function and design of Main Street and its surrounding area. Future land uses and character of specific “Focus Areas” have been developed along the Main Street corridor from Highway 7 to Toogood Pond Park.

A variety of improvement projects have been identified through the 2015 Vision Plan including undertaking a streetscape beautification initiative. In response to that, the City initiated the Main Street Unionville Streetscape Master Plan for the Commercial Core in 2018. The design concepts have been developed and were presented in a community open house in early 2019.

From Vision to Design

In continuing the City’s and the Community’s vision to enhance the historic village of Main Street Unionville, the City of Markham has engaged the engineering consulting firm of CIMA+ to complete the design of infrastructure and streetscape improvements on Main Street from the train tracks to Carlton Road, and on East Lane from Main Street to Carlton Road. Additionally, a new street light system will be incorporated from Hwy 7 to Carlton Road and on East Lane.

The project will address important underground infrastructure improvements to watermains and storm sewers, installation of new sidewalk, boulevard, road surfaces and determine other construction logistics such as utility impact/relocation, and construction staging.

Updates and information regarding the detailed design process will be posted here.

The public will be invited to participate in public meetings which will be held at design milestones. At these meetings, you will be informed of the design decisions and have the opportunity to give your feedback to the Project Team.
