DT Markham condos were already approaching $1000/sf.
Wonder how fast they'll increase now.

Sounds about right. York is already the prime international student destination for undergrads in Ontario. Markham is a logical move for them.

Looks like Scarpitti just secured his re-election (can you serve a third term lol)?

I've watched him at the town center talk about Markham's developer initiatives and this campus is his legacy, he can sleep at night now ha.

Kicking myself for not grabbing some condos in Markham DT early on, was skeptical even though I am super bullish on Markham in general.

Don't think there are term limits for municipal elections. He's been Mayor since 2006. To be honest I think despite the fact that he constantly gets accused of being in bed with developers he's been a pretty good mayor overall.

He's had my vote, he has done a good job for the most part.

I have seen a lot of the kids of the Hong Kong immigrants got priced out from Markham even for condos. It is pretty crazy the amount of money from China can do to that area.
