The 2014 Ontario Association of Architects Design Excellence award goes to the TTC for the transformation of Victoria Park subway station. The Association believes the project successfully incorporates architecture, art, environmental and urban design – and in addition, classical music.

The Victoria Park Bus Terminal, also run by the TTC, was once a cavernous, concrete bunker. Now it has a much friendlier face. Thanks to a complete reno, 25,000 daily commuters are bathed in natural light from multiple windows, as they connect to the subway and buses.

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities was sufficiently impressed to hand the TTC a Sustainable Communities Award in 2013.
