For SmartVMC -- the flagship 100+ acre master-planned community from SmartCentres, rising in the heart of Vaughan -- great things aren't just on the horizon.

They're happening right now.

The highly-anticipated downtown hub is officially coming to life, as a host of new suites are now available for purchase at Park Place condos.

Comprised of two mixed-use towers at Highway 7 and Commerce Street, the condominium brings 1,100 residential units and more than 10,000 sq. ft of retail space at grade to the area.

Through Park Place, future residents have the chance to lay roots at the centre of a rapidly evolving community hub, defined by its lavish livability, comfort, and (ever deepening) sense of connection to its surrounding urban life.

The condominium's 48- and 56-storey buildings, designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects, both showcase a curving design, and rise above a three-storey podium connecting their bases. Standing directly adjacent to SmartVMC's nine-acre central park, the buildings boast easy access to amenities, retail, transit, and an expansive public realm.

Thoughtful architecture seamlessly integrates the development with the surroundings planned for (and already flourishing in) the area. From Balzac's to Buca, and from Pumpernickel's to Roll & Go Sushi -- all of which are now open -- the mouthwatering options in the direct vicinity cover breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack times in between.

Residents will enjoy easy access to the YMCA and library, both within walking distance. PwC and KPMG are also a short stroll away -- for those working at these companies, commuting can literally be a walk in the park.

Speaking of which: the development's nine-acre park isn't only a lush green space (though it certainly is that), but it also serves as the perfect backdrop for outdoor activities that would otherwise be hard to access and enjoy in an urban setting. From picnics to soccer to outdoor yoga, residents' outdoor experience is theirs to create.

What's more, the project site is poised to welcome events like festivals and art exhibits, promising to build on the already-strong sense of community in the area.

Meanwhile, on-site amenities include a lounge and games room, a fitness area complete with a dedicated yoga and wellness hub, a cycle lab, and a large outdoor terrace that comes complete with plenty of greenery, ample space for seating, and an outdoor cooking area.

Available suites range from 470 to over 1,100 sq. ft, with layouts from one- to three-beds. Each unit is appointed with contemporary features, fine finishes, and smart integration that includes touch-free entry, smart thermostats, app integration, and Wi-Fi throughout common areas.

Park Place condos has SmartCentres Real Estate Investment Trust at its helm, and serves as an integral component of SmartCentres' current (massive) project: a $15.2B intensification program, through which rental apartments, condos, seniors’ residences, and hotels are being developed under SmartLiving, SmartCentres’ residential sub brand.

For example, The Millway, luxury purpose-built rentals now available at SmartVMC, and Transit City (in collaboration with CentreCourt), are two brand-new developments that neighbour Park Place -- these are just a couple of examples of many high-value projects contributing to the overall vision for the master-planned community.

Speaking of the master-planned project, it couldn't be SmartVMC without direct access to Vaughan Metropolitan Centre TTC station -- as well as the SmartVMC regional bus terminal and Commerce Street VIVA station -- sitting at the community's centre. Whether residents prefer Dim Sum on Spadina or a Leafs game on their Saturday night, getting into the downtown core couldn't be easier.

And no matter how far you travel, Park Place is the perfect place to head home to at the end of the day.
