Malone Given Parsons Ltd. was retained by Cadillac Fairview and Armadale Co. Ltd. to carry out a market analysis and project planning for the redevelopment of the Buttonville Airport site in Markham, Ontario, Canada. The 8,000,000 sq.ft. redevelopment plan includes a contemporary business park that is competitive, sustainable, and a world-class employment district complemented by a range of amenities in a pedestrian and transit-oriented environment.

The business park provides for about 1,000,000 sq.ft. of consumer related amenities within a mixed use core area including: retail stores, restaurants and cafes, services, and entertainment facilities. The study provides an assessment of market support and potential impact on the planned function of commercial areas, in particular, downtown areas and Urban Growth Centres.
