New Homes Coming in Aurora and Newmarket

Shining Hill is a unique and vibrant community of new homes that sits on the borders of both Newmarket and Aurora. This uniquely positioned community is poised to offer the very best of both towns to you and your family, whether that be Aurora’s fast-growing community, diverse economy and small-town atmosphere1 or Newmarket’s international reputation as one of Canada’s most dynamic, diverse and desirable towns to live and work in.2 These beautiful and uniquely exciting towns could be yours to enjoy and discover.


Imagine having not one but two of Ontario’s most highly ranked cities3 right at your fingertips. Located in the heart of the GTA, Aurora has more than 75 parks and 65 kilometres of paths and trails for joggers, hikers and skiers to explore. The town of Aurora also has many special events throughout the year. Aurora’s Haunted Forest and Christmas Tree Lighting events were both included in the prestigious Top 100 Festivals and Events in Ontario list,4 and in 2018 the town hosted a grand total of 21 special events over 38 days, which also included more than 3,600 volunteer hours.5

One such event, the Colours of Fall Concert on Thursday, October 10, is even happening soon enough to offer particularly keen and curious potential new Shining Hill homeowners the opportunity to immerse themselves in Aurora’s community. The event will have free live music, pumpkin carving and a corn roast, as well as a chance to enjoy the colourful autumn leaves. And if you missed out on the opportunity to attend this event, don’t worry. There are fun and exciting things happening year-round in Aurora. Check out their town website for a whole host of things to do.


The home to over 85,000 residents, Newmarket is bustling locale, nestled just north of Aurora and toeing the line between picturesque cottage country and big city amenities. It boasts premium health care facilities and many unique shops, including the Upper Canada Mall, which is one of the largest malls in Canada.6

There is something for everyone in this affluent residential market, which offers one of the best shopping experiences north of Toronto. The Upper Canada Mall has a wide range of shops to cater to almost any interest. One such store is Market & Co., which is a fresh food market accessible right from within the mall itself. It brings together 18 best-in-class artisan merchants under one roof, offering everything from fresh produce to an on-site butcher to dine-in restaurants, and even the unique Kitchen & Co., which is a contemporary kitchen space and demonstration area where fun and educational events are held so guess can cook, create, learn and enjoy the food and ingredients offered within the rest of the market.7

Even more amenities

The Magna Centre is another of Newmarket’s impressive amenities. It is a state-of-the-art recreation complex featuring an Olympic-sized ice rink and three NHL-sized ice rinks, a 25-metre community pool and a 21-metre learning pool, a full-sized gymnasium, a walking track, multiple multi-purpose rooms and more.8

Additionally, the construction on the VivaNext rapidway along Yonge in Newmarket is nearly complete, which means rapid transit service for the town, completed construction by the time you choose Shining Hill, and, eventually, a more connected GTA for all of us, with busses running in their own lanes all along Yonge Street and beyond. It’s an exciting time to be looking at moving to Newmarket and Aurora. These two towns are poised to become even more central to the Greater Toronto Area than they already are, and this is your opportunity to make Shining Hill your home before the area grows up even more around you.
