Mixed-Use Project by SmartCentres
At the heart of our downtown, the community beats in the VMC with the exciting mixed-use facility by SmartCentres.
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.

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.
A 55-storey, residential tower that will be the tallest landmark on Vaughan’s emerging skyline, is being touted for bringing a distinctly urban vibe to that city’s ambitious downtown plans. CentreCourt Developments’ Transit City condos will be the first residential building in SmartREIT’s 100-acre Vaughan Metropolitan Centre development called SmartCentres Place.
Smart Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX:SRU.UN) and Mitchell Goldhar today announced plans for a new Class-A office tower in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (“VMC”) with professional services firm PwC Canada as the lead tenant. VMC is the new downtown of Vaughan at Highway 400 and Highway 7, a planning area envisioning 40 million square feet of density around new mass transit, including a subway station connected directly to downtown Toronto.
