There was some discussion of this permit application here a few weeks ago when it was first applied for and someone (who seemed to know) said it was for Bay concourse work.An admittedly four-and-a-half year old plan I have shows unit 201 in the southeast corner of the Bay GO Concourse, and not in the Great Hall.
Feels like deja vu all over again. Only this time it's approved.
I note that on the application it states no seating. So it will basically be a walk up style timmies similar to what you might see in a shopping mall, or (more analogous) at Pearson airport.
@Richard White you have a boatload of local history.Morning everyone,
I was walking through the York Teamway around 1 a.m. and noticed signs on the wall saying NO PARKING (as seen in the below images).
I know the loading dock for Union used to be on York Street and that Hertz parked their cars in the garage alongside York.
Maybe I'm having a Mandela moment but IIRC the Teamway had been there at least 20 years and during that time no cars were ever given access inside it.
I realise the York concourse is new-ish. I recall the offices and former lockers that used to be in its place. I even watched a Nuit Blanche exhibit in the parking garage there before it closed and was repurposed. I could also swear platforms exited onto York Street prior to it being built though.
Can anyone explain why this sign exists?

No, that was in the part immediately below Front St. The little 'hatch' to right of exit towards the moat (at the west end) was the taxi dispatch office - or so I have read!
Yes indeed. I know alot about union because of previous experience with the TRHA. I spent alot of time with them and it was the best time of my life. I highly recommend volunteering with them if you have time. They are a wonderful organization with great volunteers who have a penchant for railway history. Their management and board are also well into the railway side of things.
I know you can see this @smallspy so I will say this. Despite the stupid mistakes that I made, despite the problems I actually miss working with them. If I could give anyone advice it would be to think before you speak and listen to the advice of those around you.
I won't get myself into trouble here by promoting them but do look at their website www.trha.ca for more info.
I attached a few pictures here from my time with them for your viewing pleasure.
