Transit Oriented Communities coming to three Ontario Line Stations in downtown Toronto

     Infrastructure Ontario announced their proposals for transit-oriented communities near Exhibition Station, King-Bathurst Station and Queen Spadina Station in downtown Toronto for three properties. One will be located at 153 Dufferin, another near the North entrance at Atlantic Avenue and on 7 Fraser Avenue. The Transit Oriented Communities is a new government plan that plans on creating new, sustainable, and rapid transit by placing more housing options and job opportunities near these transit stations. The overall goal is to help increase overall transit users and help reduce traffic in major areas. They will be working closely with third-parties to ensure that transit is integrated into the development of new properties.
