The opening of the TTC station at the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) in 2017 marked the beginning of the city’s emerging transit hub and cemented the area’s status as Vaughan’s new downtown core. Located close to Highways 400 and 7, the VMC station opened up access to the City of Vaughan, allowing commuters to travel by subway to Toronto’s Union Station in under 45 minutes, and is expected to attract thousands of new residents.

Combined with the subway station and a Viva bus terminal, the VMC is poised to become the financial, innovation and cultural centre of Vaughan with a variety of retailers, restaurants, cafes, parks and commercial offices planned. Over the next decade, the City of Vaughan anticipates the area will attract over 25,000 residents and 11,500 jobs. If you want to be a part of one of York Region’s largest and most ambitious projects, here’s a list of condo and townhome developments now selling near the VMC.
