New Subway Tunnel Opens at Hullmark

Greater incentive for new condo residents to rely more on transit and less on their vehicles – that was a key part of the community’s vision when the plan for the Hullmark Centre passed at Council in 2009.  As the new development nears completion, a milestone was reached late last month with the opening of a new access tunnel from Sheppard Avenue connecting directly to the building and the platform of the Sheppard Subway.

In addition to connecting residents of the new high rise towers and shoppers directly to the subway underneath, the tunnel also connects to onsite parking and includes free bicycle parking for local commuters.  This project is an important example of developers working together with the City, the TTC and members of the community reducing the impact from unavoidable development creating traffic on our local roads.
