Metrolinx announced that Dream Kilmer – a partnership formed by Dream Unlimited Corp. and Kilmer Group – will re-zone and redevelop Metrolinx land for the future home of the Spadina-Front GO Station.
The proposal by Dream Kilmer integrates the at-grade GO station within a new mixed-use development, with station entrances connecting onto Front Street West and Spadina Avenue.
The site located at 433 Front Street West currently serves as the North Bathurst Yard, a train layover facility where GO Trains are stored during non-peak periods.
Selecting a development partner is just the first step in the process.
The plan is to transform a 1.01-acre site at 433 Front Street West into a new mixed-use development that will connect the future Spadina-Front GO Station to a high-density mixed-use development.
With the massive multi-billion-dollar investment in GO Expansion underway to transform GO rail service across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, an opportunity was presented to better utilize the North Bathurst Yard lands.
The GO station will be delivered through GO Expansion and is currently planned to serve the Barrie GO Line.
Dream Kilmer will work with Metrolinx and ONxpress (the successful GO Expansion proponent) throughout the two-year GO Expansion development phase to ensure the scope, design and construction schedule are seamlessly integrated.
Dream Kilmer has entered into a partnership agreement with Metrolinx and will work with the City of Toronto through the established municipal planning approvals process and other necessary due diligence.
