Infrastructure Ontario (IO), with the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is leading the "Transit-Oriented Communities Program as it relates to the "New Subway Transit Plan for the GTA,” part of the government’s smart, forward-thinking plan to build new, sustainable transit. The TOC approach provides real opportunity to build vibrant, higher density, mixed-use communities that are connected to transit stations.

The East Harbour Transit Hub will support local transit needs in a new community, as well as, regional connectivity, including incorporating the GO Train (Lakeshore East and the Markham/Stouffville line), SmartTrack services, future TTC light rail transit (linking the Queens Quay LRT with Broadview Avenue) and the Ontario Line subway. The site will represent a complete community and with a diverse range of commercial space, residential space, retail, food, cultural uses and outdoor space.
