The Region of Waterloo has launched phase 1 of its bidding process to select the private developer who will build the large mixed-use transit hub on Victoria and King Street in Kitchener.

The new transit hub will feature seamless access to multiple modes of transportation and integrated residential, office, and retail space. The hub will also connect the community to the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation corridor.

The Region will sell the property to the selected private developer who will then build both the transit hall and accompanying buildings. Once complete, the transit hub will connect Grand River Transit (local buses), ION (light rail), GO trains, VIA rail, inter-city buses, taxis, pedestrians, and cyclists. The onsite buildings will include residences, offices, and stores. The site will also incorporate public spaces and transit support areas like pick-up and drop-off areas, bus bays, and links to trails/paths.

The RFQ closes June 30, 2017. The short list of applicants will be announced by September 2017. More information on the transit hub is available at
