The TTC recently declared the lot as surplus to its needs and, over the course of two transactions, Build Toronto, the City of Toronto’s development agency, has sold the land to Shiplake Properties.

Shiplake intends to create a new pedestrian-focused community on the site. It will transform the site into a four-building, 900-unit development which will also offer a new community services, a new 465-square-metre (5,000-square-foot) daycare centre, a new 0.15-hectare (0.38-acre) park and a gathering piazza, all while connecting to the Wilson subway station through new walkways. The transit-oriented development includes 100 affordable rental and 100 affordable ownership homes.

Shiplake is staging construction and occupying the lot as it requires to build the project, the necessary roadways and infrastructure to serve the new developments.

From its studies, Build Toronto has determined that about 70 percent of the parking-lot users at Wilson Station commuted from outside of Toronto, with most coming from the Woodbridge and Kleinburg areas of Vaughan. The City and TTC are building 2,800 parking spaces as part of the project to extend the Line 1 Yonge - University subway to Vaughan to accommodate large numbers of the passengers who usually park at Wilson.

New lots will be available when the subway extension opens this December at Finch West, Pioneer Village and Highway 407 stations.

In the meantime, more than 650 parking stalls are still available for passengers driving to the station. More than 1,000 parking stalls are available at nearby Yorkdale Station and more than 600 are at Sheppard West Station.

The TTC says it plans to reopen part of the site to commuter parking in January 2018, but that may depend on the progress of the construction.
