admin Portfolio Updates, Residential Development

Construction progresses on the Toronto York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) in northwestern Toronto and southern Vaughan. The TYSSE will link the existing Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) subway system with York Region Transport (YRT), and run 8.6km from Sheppard West Station (currently known as Downsview Station) to Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station—two of six new subway stations currently under construction.

York University Station will not only connect existing students more easily with the remote campus’ location, but also open doors for those previously unable to attend due to past transportation limitations.

Linking Ontario’s busiest toll highway with mass public transit, Highway 407 Station will provide commuters driving into Toronto the option of parking at the station and taking the subway downtown instead of fighting traffic in the city.

Downsview Park Station will connect with the existing Barrie Go Transit line, making the TYSSE an invaluable transit asset to the Greater Toronto Area, and the first TTC rapid transit line to cross the City of Toronto Boundary.
