Christ­mas is com­ing early for the peo­ple of Vaughan: Their shiny new Vaughan Metropoli­tan Cen­tre ( VMC) sub­way sta­tion is all set to open by Dec. 17, eight years af­ter the of­fi­cial ground­break­ing cer­e­mony. This new sta­tion, lo­cated off High­way 7 near Jane Street, is the ter­mi­nus of a six-stop expansion known as the Toronto-York Spad­ina sub­way ex­ten­sion, which de­parts from Shep­pard West sta­tion and stops at Downsview Park, Finch West, York Univer­sity, Pi­o­neer Vil­lage and High­way 407. On top of be­ing ar­chi­tec­turally unique, the VMC sta­tion is built with en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity in mind, in­clud­ing en­ergy-ef­fi­cient heat­ing and air con­di­tion­ing, a cool roof over the main en­trance and LED and en­ergy-ef­fi­cient light­ing.

CHROME DOME Gen­er­ous glass walls around the en­trance pro­vide sun­light to plat­form.
