Typical questions at debates in Ward 6 concerned a new GO Station for the Humber Bay Shores area, and how can the City pay for more new transit for the City.
A rough concept plan for the Sobey’s Plaza located at the Humber Loop is provided below, demonstrating:
(a) that high-rises need to be located at transit hubs, and not in our parkland or in the limited waterfront open space, which needs to be added as public parkland; and
(b) increasing development fees for condominium units can pay for a new GO Station.
In the example below, approximately 2,653 new condo units built at a transit hub can raise $66 million to build a new GO Station at Humber Loop.
