Union Station Revitalization Project Phase 3 (Heritage)
Completion: June 21, 2016
Size: 884000 sq. ft.
Union Station is Canada’s busiest and most important passenger transportation hub and a designated National Historic Site. The station’s revitalization will result in many benefits, including an expanded GO concourse, more exits and entrances, reduced commuter congestion, and restoration and preservation of the station’s heritage elements, as well as a full mechanical system replacement. The revitalization is a multi-phased $640-million City of Toronto initiative supported by investments of $164 million by the Government of Canada and $172 million by the Government of Ontario.
