Development Of TTC Eglinton Bus Terminal Lands To Be Considered|
| || ||
Finance Department --- The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is seeking to
develop the TTC bus terminal lands located near Yonge Street and Eglinton
Avenue West. The Purchasing and Materials Management Division of the Toronto
Finance Department, as agent for the TTC, has issued a Request for Expressions
of Interest (REI) that will close on July 28, 2000.
The development of the south-west side of the intersection may take into
consideration the adjacent Eglinton Bus Garage, scheduled for decommissioning
in 2002 and expected to be available for development as well.
The project objective is to create a first class, operationally efficient
bus/subway transfer facility that will incorporate an integrated, accessible,
indoor island bus terminal, promote ridership and create the opportunity for
revenue generation for the TTC. The current TTC bus terminal is outdated and
will require complete reconstruction in the near future. The REI will help
determine the level of interest and the capacity of firms to develop the site
as well as the potential for development.
An information meeting and guided tour for potential respondents will take
place on Wednesday, July 12, 2000 at 10 am, on Berwick Street, west of Yonge,
at the entrance to the bus garage. Please register in advance through the
office of Glen Hamilton (416-392-5838, fax 416-392-1880).
Copies of the Request for Expressions of Interest (document # 9155-00-7156) may
be obtained from the Purchasing and Materials Management Division, Toronto City
Hall, 100 Queen St. West, 17th floor, west tower (contact Natalie Duce at
416-397-4804, fax 416-392-8411).
