Vaughan is on the move – in more ways than one

Vaughan is a city on the move – quite literally, and in more ways than one. Located north of Toronto in York Region, Vaughan has long been one of the fastest growing municipalities in Canada, with a population now exceeding 306,000.

Comprising the Woodbridge, Maple, Thornhill, Concord and Kleinburg communities, each with their own characteristics and enjoying their own growth, Vaughan is a hub of development and activity. Once known as the city above Toronto, it’s now “the place to be.” And with good reason.

Vaughan Metropolitan Centre

With Hwys. 400 and 407 right there, and Hwy. 7 also running through town, transportation and transit have long been important parts of Vaughan. Now they’re central to its future, with the new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre rapid transit station, the north terminus of the western section of the Toronto subway’s Line 1. It is also a major transit hub for York Region Transit and the Viva and Zum bus rapid transit services.

Economic growth is occurring in lockstep. Vaughan is now the third largest employment centre in the GTA after Toronto and Mississauga, and the largest contributor to York Region’s economy.

Manufacturing is the star economic performer here, accounting for 22 per cent of total employment, followed by construction, retail and wholesale trade, and transportation and warehousing. United Parcel Service, in fact, operates a signature shipping warehouse near Jane and Steeles.

In the near future, you can add healthcare to the mix of economic and lifestyle benefits, as the City has entered into a first-of-its-kind partnership with Mackenzie Health, York University and ventureLAB.

The City is leading the collaboration to transform an 82-acre parcel of land at Jane Street and Major Mackenzie Drive into the Vaughan Healthcare Centre Precinct. Vaughan, York University, Mackenzie Health and ventureLAB are to study to the best use of lands surrounding the site of the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital. The hospital is under construction and expected to be completed later this year.

The goal of the collaboration is for the Vaughan Healthcare Centre Precinct to leverage resources to bring healthcare, innovation and jobs to this growing community.

“This feasibility study is an illustration of how partnerships can be truly effective when values, principles and beliefs are perfectly aligned,” says Vaughan Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua. “The new state-of-the-art Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be a catalyst for other uses, like medical offices, labs and research space, healthcare incubators, and education and conference rooms related to healthcare. This is where thought leaders, subject matter experts and innovators will come together to advance a shared vision of healthcare innovation. This transformational collaboration will benefit the healthcare of residents of Vaughan and beyond.”

Highrise living

Vaughan is noteworthy for a lot of condominium development taking place around new transit infrastructure, though there’s also noteworthy new lowrise communities in the area. This is where buyers come for expansive single-detached homes and large lots.

And once you’ve bought a home in Vaughan, Improve Canada will help you furnish and operate it. Located in Concord and more commonly known as the Vaughan Home Improvement Centre, the complex is a unique offering of about 400 home improvement stores.

Location, location, location

Located in the Regional Municipality of York; bounded by Brampton to the west, King to the north, Markham and Richmond Hill to the east and Toronto to the south; more than 273 sq. kms; population 306,233; includes the communities of Concord, Kleinburg, Maple, Thornhill and Woodbridge.

EDITOR’S CHOICE: Kingsmen Group

A name that represents passion, craftsmanship and confidence

The name may sound new, but Kingsmen’s lineage of excellence started over 30 years ago. Its goal is to deliver premium quality and value across every community it builds. Kingsmen understand that everyone lives a different lifestyle, each person has different needs and that even these things can change over time. Everyday Kingsmen does its very best to build a home that you’ll be proud of. A place that complements your lifestyle, no matter the lifestyle.

Kingsmen is thrilled to be able to introduce some of its amazing new communities, coming to a neighbourhood near you.

Havelock Corners in Woodstock is being built with families in mind. The latest release of Townhomes is currently 70 per cent sold but Kingsmen is excited to be releasing three- and four-bedroom detached homes very soon.

Stride on Lakeshore Road in Port Credit is the perfect place for working professionals looking to own a cool condo or town, while still being just 20 minutes from downtown Toronto.

Bayview is one of Kingsmen’s most exclusive builds to date. It was the mindset of Coco Chanel that inspired the design, and it is arguably the most brilliant collection of residences on Bayview Avenue, located just north of the Bridle Path.

Kingsmen is really excited about everything it’s doing right now, and 9560 on Islington Avenue might just be at the top of that list. When Kingsmen first approached this project, it wanted to craft a community that appealed to people who loved meeting and entertaining — an enclave that was familiar to a night out in Toronto, while being complemented by surrounding green space, like Boyd Conservation Park. It’s going to be an amazing collection of contemporary urban towns with a modern feel, surrounded by places to shop, eat and workout. All of this starting in the $500,000s. The arrival of 9560 is right around the corner, and Kingsmen always get excited when a concept becomes reality.

At the end of the day, Kingsmen promises to take care of you. The company promises to build a relationship with you and nurture it through regular communication, construction walk-throughs and a beautiful Decor Centre experience. Kingsmen will do everything it can to make you feel a part of its family.
