Metropolitain center and Transit City, Vaughan, Ontario

Claude Cormier et associés


Project description

The Vaughan Metropolitan Centre is the city’s downtown core. The vision for this downtown is that it continues to grow as a vibrant, modern urban centre for residents and businesses that encompasses all amenities of urban lifestyle: inspiring multi-use office towers, residences, subway access, open green space, urban squares, pedestrian shopping areas and restaurants, as well as walking and cycling paths.

The subway station’s design is underpinned by a desire to draw daylight deep inside and provide intuitive routes into and out of the airy headhouse structure. To achieve this, a dramatic X-shaped bridge at street level connects the building’s four corners, creating voids providing glimpses of the platform and trains below. Routes to the stairs, elevators and fare gates beyond are easily discerned from every entry, eliminating bottlenecks while taking advantage of clear sight lines across the station and through glazed portions of the exterior. Beyond convenience and ease of use, the geometry and transparency creates a safer, more secure transit environment.

Bolduc Avenue autoblocking HV pavers were selected for this public space.
