Markville Mall was renovated by EllisDon for $110 million from 2011-2013. This was the first renovation at Markville Mall since the original expansion of the mall in 1992. The renovation took two years to complete, and was finished in the Fall of 2013. The food court was relocated on the lower level beside Sears, and opened on August 23, 2012 as "Express Eatery". The former location was remodelled into shop space, while two new outdoor patio eating areas were added. The renovation included 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, including brands new to Canada or the Greater Toronto Area. During this transitional period, Markville's store count was reduced to 160.
