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.

    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.

    Toronto builders try a new tactic to lure suburb-hating millennials

    New projects in some of the city’s oldest suburbs are being pitched with walkable neighborhoods, condo towers, cafes, shops and a hip city feel. The phenomenon has been dubbed “hipsturbia.”

    “It’s a huge trend in the U.S. and it’s exactly what we’ve been planning for the last few years up in Vaughan,” said Jared Menkes, executive vice president of high-rise residential for the family-owned firm. “We’re bringing what we know downtown and bringing it to the suburbs.”

    ULI Spring Meeting in Toronto could set all-time record

    “The suburban story, in many ways, is going to be one of the biggest surprise stories for people who aren’t realizing what’s happening with Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, Markham, Brampton and Mississauga. Those things aren’t happening in U.S. city regions the way they’re happening here.

    “No one is coming expecting to see that, but I think they’re going to be very surprised when they do.”
