Transit City is for people going places. Living right next to the newest transit hub in the GTA, you can hop on the subway, regional transit or major highways to get where you need to fast. Whether you want to do some downtown shopping, visit friends in Markham, study at York University or get to Pearson Airport for your next vacation, you’ll be there in no time. The journey could change day to day, but you’ll always get to return to life in the heart of it all.
Just outside your front door is the gateway to the entire GTA. Closer to the subway entrance than any other residential building, Transit City residents will be able to get underground to the subway in 2 minutes or less. To make the journey even easier, you’ll receive a TTC membership*. To top it all off, Transit City is adjacent to the VIVA and York Regional Transit bus terminals, allowing you to travel locally with ease or hop on and hop off at Newmarket, Richmond Hill or any one of the nine York Region municipalities. It’s just so easy.
There’s so much to do in the proposed 9 acres of park and cultural space just outside Transit City. Consider it a green wonderland. Landscaped to perfection, the park welcomes every kind of outdoor activity you may have in mind. Even better, the Urban Park is nestled within an emerging worldclass neighbourhood that’s larger than Queen’s Park, and created by a world-renowned team of designers, led by Claude Cormier. There’s no limit to what you can do here. Whether you want to catch a concert at the natural ampitheatre, sip on an espresso at the café, sail some model boats on the pond or even get moving on the bike paths, children’s play areas and relay track, you can do it all. There are activities for people of every age. With all this and more, you can enjoy being in the centre of it all, right at home.
At 55 storeys tall, Transit City will be the tallest residential building in the York Region. Designed by Architect Don Schmitt as a landmark to the new urban landscape, its slender form captures the spirit of this vibrant area. From the outside, the building is distinguished by graceful white patterning that enfolds the frame and draws the eye skyward. The Jewel Box on the ground floor is carved from transparent glass at its base. It’s the perfect place for meet-ups, flowing out into the pedestrian mews and green space. From its structure to its transit access and its people, everything at Transit City is about connection. As the newest and tallest landmark in the York Region, it is truly the height of luxury.
A major feature in the lobby at Transit City will be a stunning Buca-branded restaurant and Bar Buca operated by the renowned hospitality provider King Street Food Company. The lobby at Transit City will serve as an inviting environment, reminiscent of the nicest 5-star hotel lobbies around the world; residents will have an environment to relax, work, unwind and socialize. From morning until night, residents will be able to experience Buca in their lobby; a latte and pastry in the morning, a quick bite during the day or a drink at night are all on the menu for residents at Transit City. Having a Buca-branded restaurant and a Bar Buca operate in the lobby will make Transit City an iconic landmark in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and will provide tremendous value to owners and residents of Transit City.
