Rendering of the future Leslie Barns facility and landscape design

The TTC is committed to making its services accessible and modern. As part of this commitment the TTC will be replacing its current fleet of streetcars with new, low floor, accessible vehicles. In order to maintain the new fleet, the TTC has built a new maintenance and storage facility, located at the corner of Leslie and Lake Shore. Designed by Strasman Architects Inc. and built to Toronto Green Development standards, features of the facility include a storm water management pond, new trees and enhanced streetscaping. Russell (Connaught Avenue) and Roncesvalles Carhouses will remain open to store approximately half of the new streetcar fleet.

Leslie Street

A new streetcar track has been installed on Leslie Street from Commissioners Street to Queen Street to connect the City's streetcar network to the new Leslie Barns. Prior to the track construction, a number of significant infrastructure improvements were completed, including upgrading aging sewers, watermains and utilities.

Streetscape enhancements along Leslie between Queen St and Tommy Thompson Park include wider sidewalks, customized street lights and hundreds of tree plantings around the future facility. Pockets of Queen Street located within the Leslieville BIA at Rushbrooke, Curzon, Leslie and Hastings have been upgraded.
