The new Union Food Court at Union Station adds 11 new food retailers and a seating capacity for more than 600 people as well as 25,000 square feet of space to Canada’s busiest transit hub. With accessibility through the GO York Concourse and the York Street Promenade, the food court brings a selection of unique food offerings to the bustling historic property.
The tenant facades are a mix of layered glass and concrete which ties in with the polished concrete columns. The layered storefronts add an unmistakable element of depth and light to the design. The communal seating areas feature elements inspired by functional and industrial materials used in the building of railroads as a nod to the station, solid-cast-aluminum high tables with a mix of white oak, ash and torrefied wood table tops with metal inlays add a touch a warmth to the overall space. The success of the food court at Union Station is achieved through intelligent design, tenant curation and strategic activations.
