Emerging Downtown

The City of Vaughan’s new downtown is rising at Highways 400 and 407.

The Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) is an emerging downtown poised to be the financial, innovation and cultural centre of Vaughan.

The VMC offers unprecedented access to multi-modal mobility, office space, and urban amenities and housing. We’re redefining the 21st-century downtown and becoming a destination of choice for businesses, talent, and residents in the GTA and beyond.

This downtown is growing faster than expected and is beyond or on track to reach targets of 12,000 residential units, 1.5 million square feet of commercial office space, and 750,000 square feet of new retail space by 2031.

The Vaughan Metropolitan Centre – it’ll move you!
