The Region of Waterloo has launched the process of finding a private developer to undertake a significant multi-use development that would incorporate a regional transit hub and serve as the region’s bookend to the burgeoning Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor.
Completion of the King-Victoria Transit Hub is targeted for the end of 2021 with full build-out of the private mixed-use development expected by the end of 2027.
Beyond co-ordinating regional transit operations such as Grand River Transit (GRT), ION LRT, GO Transit, Via Rail, inter-city buses and possibly high-speed trains along the proposed Windsor-Toronto corridor, the development will further enhance the stature of Kitchener-Waterloo within the regional Ontario tech sector, explained Ellen McGaghey, the Region's project director, King-Victoria Transit Hub.
