Cityplace Station

Intersection: Spadina Ave. and Bremner Blvd.
Construction Stage: One
2014 Density (est.): 397
Nearby Landmarks: Rogers Centre, Cityplace
TTC Connections: 510 Spadina

Cityplace Station is located at Spadina and Bremner and connects with the 510 Spadina Streetcar. It is located in the middle of a high-density residential neighbourhood that continues to grow, surrounded by a number of businesses. It serves as the terminal station for the first stage of construction.

Cityplace has been constructed in the last ten years on vacant land once owned by the railways. What was originally planned in the 1985 Downtown Relief Line proposal to simply provide a connection to Spadina and aid in future development has now almost been entirely built up, and provides a healthy mix of residents and jobs in the area. The station also provides a western stop to serve the Rogers Centre, for those coming from the west once the line is extended to Dundas West, or those who have tickets for gates on the west side of the building. The Spadina streetcar provides connections to the Garment District, Chinatown, Kensington Market, and the University of Toronto. Due to its location near Rogers Centre, parking in the area is fairly limited, and thus ridership should be expected to be high.

There is still plenty of land between Bathurst and Spadina around Fort York Blvd. to develop, as well as the railway lines if ever they are electrified and covered up. This development should increase the densities of both Cityplace station and Fort York station once the line is extended west past Bathurst.

Cityplace station would receive a high level of ridership and connect to one of the most important surface routes in the city. It will receive high enough ridership to justify stage one extending beyond Rogers Centre to this station.
