     Will be located on Queen Street East, right nearby Sherbourne and will give over an estimated 23,600 people that are expected to live within walking distance there by 2041. The station will stand at the edge of the park. Metrolinx plans on working with the city of Toronto to revitalize the parkland to make sure that this station beautifies the land.

Cork Town

     The new Cork Town station will be south of King Street East on Berkeley which will replace a current Staple’s store and some other nearby buildings. The plan for this one is to not impede on traffic on King Street. The hope for this is to become the home of a future transit-oriented community.
