We're going to start threads for the stations along the Crosstown line. Here's the former Salvation Army location at the southeast corner of Yonge and Eglinton.

Keep them coming. And those of you near the other stations please start posting. We can create new threads for them. And for the Spadina stations as well.

Huge waste of space; there should be a development there; a giant hole in the ground with cranes is better than laying that plot of land fallow
What the point of keeping those 2 bus bays?
There will be a development there, and those bus bays will go. There's just nothing very concrete for that yet.

Wasn't Matlow at one point trying to secure some green space on this location? Or was that another site up here?

There's a good chance that the Canada Square buildings will be partly or completely redeveloped along with the old bus terminal, and with much land potentially at play here, I would not be surprised if there were to be some green space in the mix. We're a ways from knowing what's coming here though.

I don't recall Matlow calling for more "green space" here,... it was more public realm "open-space" due to the public outcry over the lost of the "open space" square at across the street at YongeEglintonCentre.
