The new Union Food Court opened to the public this week, marking a significant milestone in the revitalization of Toronto’s busiest transit hub. The Union Food Court is the first area to open as part of the newly constructed lower retail level and offers 10 new food retailers, a seating capacity for more than 600 people and 25,000 square feet of space.
“The Union Food Court is the latest of multiple retail offerings we have brought to Union this year,” said Lawrence Zucker, President and CEO of Osmington, Union Station’s retail developer. “Together with our full-service restaurants, independent retailers and ongoing free programming throughout the station, we invite visitors and residents to come down to experience the new Union.”
Accessible through the GO York Concourse and the York West Teamway, the Union Food Court will also offer live streaming of sporting events, music performances and major events and a Toronto Public Library digital kiosk. It is expected that the new retail offerings will create more than 300 new jobs. A full list of the new retailers is available at torontounion.ca/eatshop.
The City of Toronto is currently leading a multi-year revitalization at Union Station that will promote transit-oriented growth, improve the quality and capacity of pedestrian movement, restore heritage elements and transform Union Station into a major destination.
