EXPO City Groundbreaking Ahead of Schedule

Prompted by strong sales, this groundbreaking event puts the project ahead of schedule.

“We unveiled the EXPO project in August 2011 and are honoured with the opportunity to break ground less than a year later and mark the beginning of construction for the new VMC,” says Peter Cortellucci, VP of Cortel Group.

Here are some pictures from the event:

With occupancy set for Fall 2015, Expo City will transform over 400 acres of commercial and industrial space into a metropolitan hub known as Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.  The community includes a blend of retail, entertainment, hotel, office, convention, and cultural centers and will become the effective gateway to the GTA.

In addition, the TTC is in the process of expanding its Spadina line up to Highway 7 with six new stops, the last of which will be the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.   Highway 7 will also be transformed into a tree-lined avenue with dedicated VIVA Rapid Transit bus lanes converging at the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.

If you are interested in the project, Expo City Phase 2 is available from the mid-$200,000's to the high-$500,000's with suites ranging from 676 sq ft to over 2,000 sq ft.
