Festival & VMC; Balance Urban Neighborhood
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. Festival, the first phase of a Master Planned Community by the acclaimed developer, Menkes, 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.
Menkes’ inspiration for developing such a landmark community was thoughtfully designed, catering to VMC’s growing population, with the core expected to house an additional 25,000 residences over the next few years. The continued rise in population by families, single professionals and academics have been further encouraged due to VMC’s residential property tax of 0.7%, making it one of the lowest in the GTA, thus encouraging homeownership.
With the City of Vaughan’s Community Improvement Plan (CIP), which is offering competitive incentives to encourage office development, VMC’s demographics of skilled professionals continue to be a catalyst behind Vaughan’s title as the largest employment hub in the York region. The CIP has fostered the development of 1.5 million sq. ft. of office space, attracting globally-recognized employers to VMC. Furthermore, the close proximity to York University’s Keele campus, one of the biggest university campuses in Canada with over 60,000 registered students and 7,000 faculty staff. In addition, Mackenzie Health Hospital is on track for a 2020 completion, which will offer the country’s first fully integrated smart technology, and further support the health and employment needs of the city.
Complemented by the renowned shopping centres (Vaughan Mills, Yorkdale), entertainment (Canada’s Wonderland, Skyzone, Cineplex Colossus) and recreational centres (Trio Sportsplex, YMCA & Vaughan Sportsplex II), Festival in VMC offers unparalleled variety for the entire family. Anchored with vast green space, Festival is walking distance to parks and trails, including a purposefully designed vertical park and outdoor amenities, Festival is offering residents the essential connection to nature.
With the city of Vaughan’s commitment to developing a downtown metropolitan area, Festival will boost the entertainment, employment, and outdoor connection to truly define it is a balanced neighbourhood in a blossoming urban centre.

Jet-setters will enjoy hopping on Highway 407 to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport in less than 20 minutes.
Education & Accessibility – With the Finch West Subway Extension to VMC, students and faculty travelling to the York University Campus upgraded up from a 40-minute bus commute to a 7-minute subway ride, transforming the concept of convenience in Vaughan and sparking a new wave of home-buying interest. Almost 60% of the Finch West Subway extension ridership is utilizing the Campus-centric stations. No longer restricted to student housing or Toronto’s rental market, students and educational professionals alike are seeing Vaughan and the VMC as their first choice for convenience-centric housing.
Connection to Nature – Festival is about more than just connections to transit and highways, it’s also about the human connection to nature. All city dwellers yearn for balance and a reprieve from their busy lives. Nature, in the form of parks and green spaces, offers a vital opportunity for residents to reconnect with themselves and their families. With a pedestrian-friendly, human-scale mix of townhomes and condominium towers, Festival is anchored by a network of attractive outdoor spaces, including a park, walking paths and family-friendly play areas.
