What You Need To Know About The Vaughan Metropolitan Centre
With Vaughan township growing at such a fast pace, it was vital that the region had a transportation system that was capable of servicing the many communities within the township. It needed to expand beyond just having a transit system, and there was a need created for a vibrant downtown area that would become the central hub of Vaughan. This was the intention that spurred on the development of the very impressive Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.
The Vision for the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre
The vision for this region of the Vaughan township is that it will be an area where both businesses and residences can utilize the space in harmony. For those who want a city feel to their living but still be in an urban setting then the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre will make the ideal choice.
What is making the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre so exciting is that it is progressing at a much faster pace than what was expected.
Aggressive goals have been set for this new urban downtown core that includes:
- 12,000 residential units
- 1.5 million square feet for commercial space
- 750,000 square feet for retail space
The deadline that has been set for reaching these goals is by 2031.
What Is Already Available in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre?
Although the VMC is still a work in progress it is already an area of excitement. It includes:
This is very close to the central segment of the VMC that is surrounded by four acres of prime land. Its boundaries are Hwys 400 and 407. Public transportation is state of the art here with the new Vaughan subway station which opened in December 2017. What this has meant is that residents of Vaughan can be transported to Union station in forty-five minutes.
First Commercial Presence
Even though this ultra-modern downtown core for Vaughan is still in its growth stages, it has already become an attraction for commercial clients like the KPMG Tower which is a Class A office building, and it opened in 2016. Then there is the mixed-use building right next to that is beginning to fill up with various types of businesses plus a city library and YMCA. It is slated to open in 2019.
Residential developments are in full swing which includes:
- Transit City
- The Met
- Expo City
Future plans include the building of more towers and townhouses. So far, this project is at 122% for their 2031 residential target.
In close proximity to the VMC is the Niagara University, which is the first university to reside in Vaughan as well as York Region.
No Shortage of Green Space
One of the concerns that urban dwellers may have which a project such as this is a sacrifice of green space. This has been well preserved with the planning of the VMC. It has included the Edgeley Pond and Park as part of its landscape.
What Does This Mean For Current Residents of Vaughan Township?
It means that all of the amazing amenities that they currently enjoy are going to be expanded upon. No longer do residents have to travel to downtown Toronto for that hub of the city feel, but if they choose to then the state of the art transit system that is within the VMC can aptly accommodate them.
The Best of Both Worlds
The best of both worlds is a cliché that is often used loosely, but when it comes to being a resident of Vaughan, it is a cliché that fits perfectly. Residents here can enjoy all of the benefits that urban living brings and still have full access to those that city living possesses. One of the biggest features to be enjoyed is that downtown feels minus the congestion and cramped atmosphere that often comes with a city landscape.
A Boost To The Vaughan Economy
There can be little arguments made that the new VMC will not be a boost to the Vaughan economy. Which it turn is a boost for those that are currently living here. Living in a region where the economy is strong has a positive impact on the entire family.
Those that already own property here in Vaughan township have the security of knowing that they have invested in an area where their property assets are going to retain their value and continue to grow.
What Does This Mean For Future Residents of Vaughan Township?
There are often a lot of variables and potential risks that may arise when people are making the decision to move to a new area. Vaughan is showing all the signs of dramatically reducing those risks even though it is still in its growing stages.
The Right Time
Now is the time to move to Vaughan while it is in its growing stages. There are still plenty of opportunities to buy real estate at affordable prices, with some good selections. As Vaughan continues to grow, these opportunities will diminish, and prices will most certainly increase. The risk of whether the future plans for this township will materialize is reduced because the proof is already present. With the rapid progression that is being made with the VMC, it is a clear indicator that there is no stopping the advancement of this development.
Vaughan township families have been enjoying urban living at its best for many years and are most excited about how this is going to be expanded upon. With a University now being added to the educational system, it completes all of the education necessities that families with children have here. Although commuting to downtown universities was made even easier with the new transit system having extra options is a big bonus.
For seniors living in Vaughan, the new VMC is going to have a lot to offer them. Seniors who are snowbirds or like to travel already enjoy the close proximity to the airport that Vaughan provides.
Then for those who are looking for employment close to home, the VMC is going to be able to provide some excellent opportunities for this as new businesses move into the area. This is not something that is usually enjoyed to any great extent with urban living. Vaughan township has taken urban living to the next level.
Making the decision to move to Vaughan township is a wise one on many different levels.
