Two new towers are set to rise in Vaughan Metropolitan Centre with Park Place Condos, representing the next phase of SmartVMC’s master plan by SmartLiving, SmartCentres REIT’s residential sub-brand. The pair of 48- and 56-storey towers are designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects and will add to a growing skyline around the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre transit hub. The development includes a total of 1,100 residential units along with more than 10,000 ft² of urban retail space at ground level.

The towers sport a curvy, elegant design from Hariri Pontarini, with horizontal fins wrapping the podium that create a linear motif which continues up the tower as fritted glass. This attention to detail is not just limited to the exterior, however, with Hariri Pontarini also designing the building interiors with the same elevated, contemporary aesthetic.

The suites come in a variety of types and sizes, ranging from 480 to over 1,100 ft² and from one to three bedrooms. Along with the range of options, each suite features 9-foot-high smooth ceilings; floor-to-ceiling windows with roller blinds included; a balcony; and windows in each bedroom. The layouts are efficiently organized to maximize the usable interior space, with an open-plan kitchen, dining, and living room that allows for plenty of natural light and flexibility.

Suite interiors feature high-quality finishes that are durable, comfortable, and offer a luxurious feel to the space. The bathrooms in particular are meticulously designed with modern finishes, including porcelain tile floors and floor-to-ceiling tiled walls in the wet areas. The showers and tubs are glass-enclosed and come with a rain showerhead, features that are not typically standard in most condos. The toilet is water-efficient, and a modern sink with stone countertop complements the aesthetic of the space.

The main living area and bedrooms feature resilient LVP flooring for a warm, inviting look that is comfortable on the feet and also highly durable and scratch-resistant. The kitchen includes solid surface countertops which accent the living space and a full-slab backsplash, synonymous with luxury interior design, that offers a clean look free of grout lines, making it easy to maintain. Integrated appliances offer a streamlined look, seamlessly blending in with the cabinetry for an aesthetically-pleasing appearance that is also efficient and space-saving.

Residents can choose from two standard designer-chosen colour palettes for the interior finishes, offering customization without having to hire an interior designer. Fixtures come in either black and gold to complement the elevated design of the interiors.

Units are also equipped with smart capabilities such as touch-free entry and smart thermostats, all of which can be accessed through app integration.

The building also features a host of new amenities located on the second and third floors of the podium. These include a fitness area with yoga and wellness spaces and a cycle lab; a lounge and games room; and a large outdoor terrace, complete with landscaping, seating areas, and an outdoor cooking area. WiFi will also be available in all common areas.
