PARK LAWN GO STATION
First Capital REIT (FCR) has proposed to build a new GO Station to be developed in partnership with Metrolinx and located at the north end of the former Mr. Christie Cookie Factory, municipally known as 2150 Lake Shore Boulevard West. The proposed GO Station is envisioned to be on both sides of the Lakeshore West rail corridor, and both sides of Park Lawn Road in the City of Toronto. The proposed GO Station is anticipated to evolve into a multi-modal transportation hub that would provide improved local and regional transit access and connectivity. GO Transit currently operates train service along the Lakeshore West Corridor, from Union Station in Toronto to West Harbour, in Hamilton and Niagara Falls. The proposed GO Station has the opportunity to provide a new stop along the Lakeshore West rail corridor between Exhibition and Mimico Stations.
A Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP), as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08 under the Environmental Assessment Act, will be completed for the proposed Park Lawn GO Station. As part of the TPAP, an Environmental Project Report (EPR) will be completed by Metrolinx and FCR to assess the potential environmental effects of this transit project. Pre-TPAP work is ongoing and a Notice of Commencement will be issued when the TPAP is started.
