City buying land near Dufferin Station



The City of Toronto wants to buy property near Dufferin Street and Bloor Street West for the TTC’s project to expand Dufferin Station, build a new passenger waiting area and install a second exit from the station.

This week, last week and next week, ads in the Toronto Star officially notify the public that the City intends to expropriate parts of 1140 Bloor Street West, 1030 Dufferin Street and 7 Russet Avenue. (Provincial legislation requires municipalities to advertise expropriations three times.)

The TTC intends to start work on the project to modernize is Dufferin Station later this year. During the project, it will update station finishes and replace the structure on the west side of Dufferin Street with a new accessible building. Passengers will have access to the platforms from Russet Avenue, one block west of Dufferin Street. It expects to finish the work in 2013.
