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.

    Building a Bright Future

    The VMC area is in high demand, says Mayor Bevilacqua, and that kind of focus will distinguish it from other downtowns. The Vaughan advantage is something truly unique, beginning with it’s location, situated within a 10- to 15-minute drive from Canada’s busiest airport, Lester B. Pearson, and within a day’s reach to a market in excess of 150 million people.
