With sales quickly progressing for Plaza and Berkeley's The Met, a 35-storey condominium tower coming to Jane Street north of Highway 7 in Vaughan, we paid a visit to the project's presentation centre earlier today for a closer look at the development. Located just southwest of the project's Jane Street site, the presentation centre occupies a retail unit at the north end of a stripmall bearing Plaza's branding.

Stepping inside, guests are greeted by a reception desk flanked by two wings. One wing is devoted to a large scale model—built by Vaughan-based Myles Burke Architectural Models—as well as wall-mounted floorplans depicting units within the development. The scale model provides ample insight into the project's Quadrangle Architects design, and we will return for a detailed look at the model in the near future.

The other wing of the presentation centre allows visitors to get a first-hand look at the interior details of the building's units, as well as learn what's to come in the rapidly-evolving Vaughan Metropolitan Centre development node surrounding the future Vaughan Centre subway terminus now under construction. The centrepiece of the space is a large table-mounted 3D master plan for Vaughan's emerging downtown, featuring massing models of the office and residential towers planned for the vicinity of The Met.

The space also features a projector and large screen for video presentations, and a wall of finish packages, both seen in the image above. A selection of four different suite vignettes are also included in the presentation centre, showing off the finish packages for two different kitchens and bathrooms.

There's more to see at The Met's presentation centre, and we will return with a closer look at the project's scale model.
