"Vaughan Council was joined by City officials, senior staff and the project team to unveil a plaque today in the new City Hall that commemorates the laying of the cornerstone.
“We are here to celebrate the beginning of a new era with the construction of Vaughan’s new City Hall,” said Mayor Linda Jackson. “This building is a tangible expression of the City’s commitment to environmental stewardship and will become a benchmark for sustainable development in our community. Vaughan has grown into a major urban centre and now we have an award-winning City Hall that will be a source of civic pride for many years to come.”
The award-winning Canadian architectural firm Kuwabara Payne McKenna and Blumberg (KPMB) designed the new City Hall to achieve a Gold certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). It will be one of largest public buildings in Canada to be recognized for its eco-friendly features, including energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, maximum use of natural light, and water-efficient landscaping."
