The Mark and Mount Joy
Wismer 3 represents two development sites: Mount Joy Townhouses and The Mark Condominiums. The 6.25 acre site is located at 9560 Markham Road, north of 16th Avenue, across the street from the new Mount Joy Go Transit station. In November 2011, the western portion of the site was approved for 32 rear lane freehold townhouses and 16 traditional freehold townhouses. All six development blocks went under construction in 2013 and first occupancies occurred in February 2014.
This project is being co-developed by Empire Communities, Pace Development Inc. and Fortress Real Developments.
The eastern portion of the site fronts Markham Road and received zoning by-law and site plan approvals in September 2012 for an 18-storey, 220 unit condominium apartment with about 16,600 sf of GFA. The high-rise portion of the site is called The Mark. The project sold out in pre-construction and residents took occupancy in 2018.
