With the new northwest terminus of the TTC's Line 1 set to open in Vaughan late next year, a collection of developments are in the works in the area near the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre station site. Plaza and Berkeley are among the first wave of property developers capitalizing on the area's coming transit hub, with their new 35-storey tall condominium tower at Highway 7 and Jane Street dubbed The Met.

Featuring a Quadrangle Architects design, The Met will bring a total of 511 residential units to Vaughan's new downtown, helping to create the residential critical mass necessary in fostering active streetscapes. The development's one and two-bedroom suites will range in size between 510 ft² and 875 ft², while the project's 62 townhouse units will feature offer sizes in excess of 1,250 ft². Residents of these units will enjoy a wide offering of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, certain to become community focal points within the development.

The Met's ground floor is mostly given over to the amenities, as seen in the plan below. The amenities include a fitness centre and spa, party rooms with bar, lounging space, and adjacent kitchens and dining areas, a games room, a theatre, and a tech lounge. Outdoor spaces will also be offered, including a bar and barbecue area.

The Met will come with streetscape improvements to the area that include landscaping and a to-be-announced public art installation. While the coloured poles in the image below are simply a placeholder, the scale model provides a hint into the public realm upgrades the project will bring.
