NEW Homes located East of Ninth Line, South of 17th Ave, West of Reesor Rd and North of Hwy 407

Cornell was conceived in the 1990s planning process by the Town of Markham. Unlike other Markham communities, Cornell is a planned community.


Cornell's name was selected in the 1990s from a suggestion by local lawyer Paul Mingay.  Mingay's family roots can be traced back to Susan Emily Cornell, a descendant of William Cornell who settled from Scarborough.


Most of the houses in Cornell are townhomes, semi-detached or detached houses with garages at the rear. The communities are built with central amenities in order to contain suburban sprawl. Cornell was seen by the Markham Town Council as a way to deter the ongoing sprawl by encouraging residential density. 


The northern section of Cornell (north of Highway 7) is fully populated with medium density residential. The southern section of Cornell (south of Highway 7), however, is not populated, and remains as a wild field and a farm.  The estimated population is 12,000 and the local schools are Cornell Village Public School and Little Rouge Public School.  Bur Oak High School and Markham District High School.
