That's what I *thought*, but it's only the Barrie line that's proposed to have a stop there. It can play the support column role I suppose.
yup, haha. I always underestimate the size of Central Park. Regardless, this would be a massive park for Toronto, probably the largest in the downtown core.
I'm as excited as anyone for this, but I gotta say I'm a little cynical about the lack of funding sources or even cost estimates. My gut says $700m might even be on the low side.
So do we have a timeframe for this park?

It wouldn't be too diffucult to imagine the Bathurst Yard being partially acquired and south side of Front being opened up to mid-rise development.I'm floored this is being proposed as pure parkland. If there were proposed development parcels mixed in with this and it was paid by the developers, I could believe it. But a standalone park? Please, show me the money. We have over $20 billion in unfunded projects as is, and we want to tack on another billion to build downtown parkland? Don't get me wrong, I think it's a worthy investment, but I also believe it is lower on the priority list compared to other outstanding items.
