Tran­sit City Jane St & Hwy 7 Com­ple­tion: 2020 From: $300,000 (46 square me­tres)

Quick Take: Set to rise next to Vaughan’s new sub­way sta­tion, this tower from SMARTREIT, Mitchell Gold­har and Cen­tre­court De­vel­op­ments does one bet­ter than prom­ise a stream­lined trip to Union Sta­tion – it elim­i­nates the need to make the trek south to Toronto in the first place. Those looking for a hit of that buzzy met­ro­pol­i­tan scene are in luck. At the base of the pro­posed 55-storey build­ing will be the first GTA lo­ca­tion of Buca, the up­scale Ital­ian restau­rant on King West and in Yorkville.

From the Street: The ar­rival of a des­ti­na­tion din­ing spot is a rite of pas­sage for Vaughan’s bur­geon­ing down­town district, cur­rently home to a KPMG of­fice tower and set to even­tu­ally wel­come dozens of other res­i­den­tial, of­fice and re­tail de­vel­op­ments, plus a nine-acre park de­signed by Claude Cormier + As­so­ciés. In keep­ing with the project’s as­pi­ra­tions of bring­ing a down­town feel to a sub­ur­ban site, Di­a­mond Sch­mitt Ar­chi­tects has en­vi­sioned a chic, cos­mopoli­tan fa­cade. The sky­scraper’s floor-to-ceil­ing glass win­dows are framed with snaking metal pan­els that ex­tend out be­yond the build­ing’s edge to its bal­conies.

Mov­ing In: In­te­ri­ors by fig­ure3 have yet to be re­vealed, but judg­ing by an early de­pic­tion of the lobby space that will house Buca’s bar, ex­pect warm met­als and natural stone to be main in­gre­di­ents. tran­sitc­ity.com
