Downtown Reinvented

Welcoming you to a world of opportunities!

The City of Vaughan’s new downtown – the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) located at Highway 7 and Jane Street – is fast becoming the heart of the community, brimming with new talent, innovation and urban amenities.

The VMC is one of Canada’s largest master planned communities, complemented by a world-class transit system offering residents and businesses seamless connectivity throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The Toronto Transit Commission’s (TTC) Line 1 Yonge-University subway extension, including services for the new Viva bus rapidway on Highway 7, along with the new SmartCentres Place Bus Terminal are all slated to come online over the next year.

A crucial concept underpinning the VMC is that adjacent housing and urban amenities are being leveraged by top employers to attract talent.

Those employers include KPMG, which has located more than 600 staff in the VMC’s first office building, the 15-storey KPMG Tower at SmartCentres Place. Other tenants include Miller Thomson, GFL Environmental, and Harley-Davidson Canada.

Strategically located in Canada’s largest economic hub in southern Ontario, the VMC will redefine 21st-century downtowns and be a destination of choice for businesses and residents in the GTA and beyond.
