EXPO City by Cortel Group
VMC’s first residential community, EXPO City, is well underway. Located at the eastern gateway to the VMC, the first two towers are now occupied. Tower 3 is now under construction.
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.

The new TTC subway extension from Downsview Park Station in Toronto to the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre in York Region will open on Dec. 17, just 30 days from today. The new subway extension will provide subway service that moves beyond regional boundaries in Ontario for the very first time.
In some excellent news for Toronto and York region commuters, the TTC has finally confirmed an opening date for the new, long-waited Toronto–York Spadina Subway Extension.
The extension, part of Toronto’s long term plan to improve its transit network, will move from Sheppard West station (formerly Downsview) almost 9 km all the way to Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station, which is already proving a hub for development.
Gioia Di Giovanni loves downtown Toronto. She just doesn’t want to live there.
Di Giovanni, 36, works in healthcare in the 905 and owns a condominium in Richmond Hill, close to where she was born and raised. She wants to move up to a larger condo south of her current address and has found the perfect solution at Transit City — the first residential tower that will be built at Smart Centres Place in Vaughan, a 100-acre master-planned development.
Joint venture partners Smart Real Estate Investment Trust (SmartREIT), Mitchell Goldhar and CentreCourt Developments have released details of a planning application for the development of Transit City, the first residential condominium tower in the SmartCentres Place, the largest urban development in the province.
