Toronto 2024 Olympic Bid (Dead)

Thought this would fit here, I made a map of the proposed GO line that was going to serve the Olympics Plaza on the Portlands, though I think this was for the 2008 Olympics and not the 2024 one.

Redid this map to be a bit less ugly, but it still shows a cool piece of development from the Olympic bid, and what could’ve happened:
