Downtown Vaughan is Rising

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

Major corporations and thousands of new residents are choosing the VMC because it’s the perfect balance between downtown Toronto and the Greater Toronto Region. No other location offers this blend of subway and rapid bus transit with equal access to downtown and the suburbs, Class A office space, and an urban lifestyle.

As a result, this hub at Highways 400 and 407 is growing faster than expected. It’s on track to meet or exceed targets of 12,000 residential units, 1.5 million square feet of office space, and 750,000 square feet of new retail space by 2031.

    Two-Tower Complex Proposed in Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Area

    The Vaughan Metropolitan Centre area now forming around the TTC subway terminus of the same name is growing denser every year, and now another multi-tower complex has been proposed which could add to the new skyline developing around the Highway 7 and Jane Street area. The proposal seeks an Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment from the City of Vaughan to permit a pair of residential towers at 216 Doughton Road, a five-minute walk southeast of the subway station.

    Smart Growth: SmartVMC, Vaughan, Ontario

    As a developer, SmartCentres is best known for outlet stores at the perimeter of cities—less so for urbanism. Paula Bustard, an executive for the company, recounted how she was in a meeting with the TTC when the transit officials disclosed, without forewarning, that they intended to build a subway station on SmartCentres property in the city of Vaughan. Such an unlikely event is as valuable as it is rare. For SmartCentres, it led to rethinking their entire approach.

    Vaughan Metropolitan Centre’s First Purpose-Built Rental Breaks Ground

    Over the last several years—both while Vaughan Metropolitan Centre subway station was under construction and since its opening in late 2017—a flurry of construction has taken place surrounding this new transit hub.

    One of the largest developments is Transit City at SmartCentres Place. Transit City Condos 4 and 5 began constriction in late 2019. In addition to those two most recent condo towers—to rise 50 and 45-stories respectively—the new phase also includes a 36-storey purpose-built rental building, which officially broke ground last week.
