Tesla to build 50,000sqft Service Center in Markham, Ontario

Tesla is expanding its presence in Ontario, with plans to build a new 50,000 square foot Sales, Service, and Delivery Center in Markham.

The new Service Center will be located at 710 Markland Street, at the corner of Markland St and Major Mackenzie Drive. According to site plans shared with the City of Markham last month, Tesla plans to build their Service Center on the western section of the lot, providing exceptional visibility to the thousands of cars driving by on Highway 404.

The Service Center will sit on 5.40 acres, with the building taking up 50,355 square feet. There will also be approximately 300 parking spot surrounding the building, providing more than enough space for customer cars and storage for cars waiting for delivery.

The remaining portions of the lot will be developed with a mix of other commercial uses.

The plans were presented at a Development Services Commission meeting last month, where Tesla requested a Zoning By-law Amendment. While the site was zoned for commercial uses, the list of approved uses under the zoning did not allow for a “motor vehicle sales and repair establishment.”

Following a presentation by Nick Pileggi, Principal Planner, Macaulay Shiomi Howson Ltd., the application for the amendment was unanimously approved.

Given that the zoning amendment was just approved on March 26, 2024, and the fact that the site requires significant grading, up to 6 meters in some areas to accommodate a future off-ramp from Hwy 404, it will likely be late 2025 or into 2026 before we see Tesla Markham officially open.

Tesla is currently building another new 50,000 square foot Service Center in London, Ontario.
