Administrative Centre Annex

York Region Administrative Centre Annex Artist Rendering

Construction of York Region’s Administrative Centre Annex is underway at the corner of Yonge and Eagle streets in the Town of Newmarket. Located next to the Administrative Centre – York Region’s headquarters – and across from the Newmarket Courthouse, the Annex building and its grounds will create a civic campus within an established government district.

Once complete, this eight-storey, 422,000 square-foot facility will offer a variety of public services, such as:

  • Public Health Clinics
  • Social Services
  • Ontario Works
  • Housing Services
  • Provincial Offences Act Courts
  • York Small Business Enterprise Centre
  • Access York Customer Service

Approved by Regional Council in 2012, the construction of the Annex will realize York Region’s long-term plan to consolidate a variety of community, health and courts services into one central, fully-accessible, modern facility.

Over a 30-year period, the Region expects to realize significant savings by consolidating a variety of satellite locations throughout Newmarket to the Annex, rather than continuing to lease or invest in aged owned facilities.


Annex highlights:

  • Eight storey modern facility designed by WZMH Architects
  • Connected to the Administrative Centre with an enclosed bridge
  • 422,000-square-feet of office, courts and clinic space with ample parking for visitors
  • Environmentally-sustainable design (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver)
  • Located along a major transit corridor (Yonge and Eagle Streets) with easy access to amenities and services
  • Aligned with the Ontario Places to Grow Act, York Region Official Plan and the Town of Newmarket’s Secondary Plan for increased density along Yonge Street
  • Improved local access to services in one fully-accessible location
