Scene: A New Entrance for Queen’s Park Station

WHERE: College Street and University Avenue, Southeast Corner

WHEN: Earlier today

WHAT: Queen’s Park Station users are getting a new way down to the tracks, done up in a style meant to complement the architectural sensibilities of the still-under-construction MaRS Centre Phase II (and provided by that project’s developer, to replace the entrance that was there when the City gave them approval to build). Currently, the new structure is still behind construction fences, but the aim is to have it open for business on or around June 1, according to Rob Stewart, a spokesperson for MaRS. The entrance will be stairs-only, but anyone who wants to ride an elevator down will eventually be able use the ones in the MaRS Centre, which will have an underground connection to the station.
