KPMG Tower by SmartCentres
KPMG, a leader in audit, tax and advisory services, has put down roots in the new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. KPMG is the lead tenant in the 365,000 square foot Class-A office building owned by SmartCentres
Two and a half years after construction started on Plaza and Berkeley’s The Met, the 35-storey, Quadrangle-designed condominium tower and townhome community is now on the home stretch in Vaughan’s new purpose-built Downtown.
The project has risen to its full height on Jane Street north of Highway 7—just steps from the new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre subway station—as exterior finishes continue to enclose the tower and townhomes.
The December 2017 opening of Vaughan Metropolitan Centre subway station is bringing significant new investment to the Toronto suburb of Vaughan.
Pre-dating the station’s opening, the Cortel Group was the first developer to bring new high-rise buildings to the area at Expo City, a high-density community taking shape just a few blocks east of the station. Following on the heels of the completed first two towers, construction is moving along for the AJ Tregebov Architect-designed third and fourth towers.
Vaughan announced Tuesday, Aug. 20, that the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks has approved its flood prevention initiative at the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.
“We are taking an innovative approach to flood control and mitigation, while delivering on our commitment to position Vaughan as a leader in municipal sustainability,” he added.
SmartCentres announced today that they have signed a 10-year lease transaction with Scotiabank in the PwC-YMCA Tower at SmartCentres Place in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (“VMC”).
Scotiabank will occupy 26,500 square feet, with 23,000 square feet of office space on the 8th floor of the Tower, with the balance for a retail branch in the lobby of the Tower. Occupancy is targeted for Fall 2019.
