When trying to pick the ideal new home, people want to love where they hang their hats – but getting out and about quickly and conveniently is also a huge priority.

That’s why purchasers at Zancor Homes’ latest condominium, Xpression in Richmond Hill, will be excited to hear about the coming transit plans for Yonge Street North of Highway 7.

Xpression will be ideally situated on the east side of Yonge, just across from the soon-to-be-renovated Hillcrest Mall, the retail centre in the area.

Now that the Town of Richmond Hill has approved a new official plan, watch for other big things in the area – including new transit lines. The plan, calls for the creation of a high density urban zone. And, as we all know, the only way to foster a healthy, vibrant urban environment is with efficient transit. So, Richmond Hill is also planning a series of major transit expansion initiatives. This includes the eventual extension of the Yonge subway line to the Richmond Hill Centre Terminal. This direct connection to downtown Toronto will spur growth and ongoing development in this already bustling nucleus of the 905 region!

Meanwhile, in the first phase of this major transit expansion for Richmond Hill, residents will see the widening of Yonge Street (between Hwy 7 & Major Mackenzie) to allow a dedicated transit lane for a bus rapid transit route (a BRT).

All this new transit means that the already growing town of Richmond Hill is poised to become a major urban hub in the next decade. The timing is perfect for people who want to call this vibrant area home!
