Hovering above a nearly complete Mount Dennis Station on Toronto’s Crosstown line

Mount Dennis station is currently about 98 per cent finished as it prepares to take up an important place on the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit route. In a very cool drone shoot, we can show you what that impressive percentage number means.

We’ve shown a lot of underground progress happening along Eglinton Avenue and Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) stations along the corridor have started to take shape – inside and out.

Mount Dennis Station will be the first stop along the new light rail transit route heading eastbound. The station will be a mobility hub, linking to GO and TTC lines.

The latest drone video offers a bird’s eye view of the site, including the Eglinton Maintenance and Storage facility, as well as a tour of the station.

The bus bay is complete, offering 15 bus bays for TTC buses and will have an underground, accessible connection to the LRT station.

The Kodak building will act as the station’s tertiary entrance. The main entrance will be located west of the rail corridor and will include 40 outdoor and 80 indoor bicycle parking spaces.

At platform level, track has been installed and vehicles are regularly being tested in the area. The platform sits ready with the urban tapestry completed.
