Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti was joined by Premier Doug Ford today, July 24th, to announce that York University will be moving forwarding with its plan to build the $275.5-million Markham Centre Campus (MCC).
Previously, there had been doubts as to whether the proposed campus would be built when provincial decisions were made to cancel the development and related funding. Fortunately, York University was able to secure significant donations and fundraising from York Region, the City of Markham, donor contributions, and the University’s existing capital funds.
Campus construction is expected to begin within the next few days, with a projected completion in the fall of 2023. The site will feature a 10-storey building at Enterprise Boulevard and Rivis Road which will accommodate 4,200 students and convenient access to the nearby Markham Pan Am Centre and YMCA.
This announcement is gladly welcomed by residents and investors of Markham – fostering Markham’s already highly educated and diverse workforce, and providing workplace-based learning opportunities at the various tech head offices located in Markham (IBM, AMD, Lenovo, Huawei, Toshiba, and many more).
