Vaughan Metropolitan Center (VMC) has been steadily defining itself as the new core of the Greater Toronto area (GTA). Offering density for residences, employment, entertainment, and supported by accessibility through various modes of transportation, this growing urban centre is quickly becoming one of the most desirable places to live in Canada.
The consistent growth and developments in Vaughan have been initiated by the Municipal and Provincial Government through the city’s Secondary Plan, focused on developing VMC’s residential and employment hubs. M2 Towns is supported by major mobility hubs (VMC & 407) and will boost the housing diversity (condominiums and townhomes) and lifestyle amenities within the heart of VMC.
Vaughan is at the centre of the Greater Toronto Area public transit and highway infrastructure and as Vaughan grows, so does its mix of housing options from single-family homes to high-density condominiums. This new Cosmos Condos development will be situated in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre which is the City’s “new downtown”- a proposed 125-acre mixed-use development. “A vibrant, modern urban centre for residents and businesses that encompasses all amenities of urban lifestyle from inspiring multi-use office towers, residences, open green space and urban squares, pedestrian shopping areas and restaurants, to walking and cycling paths. All coexisting with some of the most technologically advanced sustainable buildings in the world.”
