About The Project

The McCowan & Bur Oak area in Markham is a quiet, desirable family area of freehold houses. How about adding a low rise condominium to the mix? That’s what developer Emery is hoping to find out with its new condominium project called The Essential that will be located in the North West corner of McCowan & Bur Oak. This location benefits from being right across the street from an existing plaza containing TD Canada Trust, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Sobey’s, Second Cup, Subway, and Pizza Pizza to name a few. Another selling point is being close to York region’s, and one of the province’s, top rated public high school Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Transportation services include the Markham GO Train, VIVA bus service and close proximity to Highway 404 and 407.


The building is a low-rise condominium with only 6 storeys. Features include a soaring 2-storey entrance lobby, fully equipped fitness room, private golf simulator room, private dining room, party/multi-purpose room, rooftop terrace with two BBQ areas, and a private media room for catching the latest film. In addition there is also a guest suite as well as office space. Maintenance fees will be approximately 48 cents per square foot with hydro being metered separately.

Suite features include

9′ ceilings for all units, granite or “Caeserstone’ kitchen countertops, stainless steel undermount sink, stainless steel appliances, porcelain or ceramic tile counter splash. Flooring: 40 oz. carpet in bedrooms and bedroom closets, laminate flooring with acoustic underlay in foyers, vestibules, corridors, kitchen, dining room, living room, and den.
