Markville Shopping Centre was renovated by EllisDon for $110 million from 2011-2013. The renovation included the installation of 180,000 square feet (17,000 m2) of porcelain tile flooring, and 12,000 linear feet of glass handrails. Over 250,000 square feet (23,000 m2) of commercial space was to be renovated, which would add many brands new to Canada or the Greater Toronto Area. A new food court that would replace the old one was also in the renovation plans, it opened on 23 August 2012 as "Express Eatery" beside the lower level Sears entrance. The former food court location has been remodelled into shop space, as well as two outdoor patio areas. This was the second renovation at the centre since the 2001-2002 expansion. The renovation was completed in two years, and was finished in the fall of 2013. During this transitional period, the mall's store count was reduced to 160.

Other bus routes make stops along McCowan Road and Highway 7, which are the 1, 42, 301, 304, Viva Green, and Viva Purple.
