Historic Fort York is home to a number of Toronto’s oldest buildings and each year it attracts thousands of visitors learning about the history of this city64. In juxtaposition to this beautiful historic backdrop, with a predictive population density increase of 250% from 2006 to 2014 it is one of the fastest growing neighbourhoods in Toronto. There are 11 condos and lofts currently under construction within 500 m of Fort York and there are 3 more proposed condos in the area.

Despite the large number of developments currently being built there still remains potential for future growth. The area northwest of Fort York station is currently used for manufacturing. This is a remnant of an older era and as the Fort York neighbourhood continues to grow these areas will be ideal for future redevelopment.

The population surge that the Fort York neighbourhood is seeing will be followed by a growing demand for transportation. Fort York station will meet these growing demands as well as provide access to Historic Fort York, one of Toronto’s many historic sites.
