Stadium Station Transit Oriented Development Project
Since 2008, the City has been undertaking a pilot transit oriented development project in the area near the Stadium LRT Station.
Reports summarizing the pilot planning initiative have been reviewed by City Council's Executive Committee.
At the August 22, 2012 meeting (item 6.2), the Executive Committee discussed and tabled a variety of options for transit oriented development in the area.
About Transit Oriented Development
Transit oriented development (TOD) is urban development that is planned and integrated with an LRT station at its core. In a TOD, housing, shopping, and employment are concentrated in a walkable and bikeable community within 400 metres – a five-minute walk in any direction – of the transit station.
Existing Conditions: south end of Park and Ride Lot and Commonwealth Stadium
Possible Future Conditions: new pedestrian and cyclist friendly street
The purpose of the Stadium Station TOD project is to create a development concept for the area based on the principles of TOD and to gain experience in comprehensive TOD planning to inform future activities.
