Today, TD Bank Group and Osmington (Union Station) announced a new partnership that will see TD Bank as the Founding Sponsor and exclusive Financial Services Partner. This is all part of the brand make over and revitalization of Union Station which is the busiest transportation hub in the country, and turn it into a vibrant retail, cultural and civic destination.
Both brands share some fundamental core values such as championing arts and culture, community leadership and desire to bring comfort to everyday commuters and visitors of this historical Toronto landmark.
“TD’s commitment to Toronto is strong, and through our relationship with Union we’re proud to play a leading role in revitalizing this iconic commuting hub,” said Teri Currie, incoming Group Head, Canadian Personal Banking, TD Canada Trust. “We’re excited to bring innovative banking solutions and create comfortable and convenient experiences for the millions of visitors to Union.”
A number of improvements will be rolled out at Union Station in the coming months such as free WiFi access, and TD plans to open a new state-of-the-art retail branch and outfit the complex with ATMs to offer customers and commuters greater convenience as they explore and experience all that the revitalized Union has to offer.
“Our vision is to transform Union into a multi-use, must-see space that features the best of Toronto. In order to achieve this level of experience, we needed a partner who understood and shared our vision, a city builder who saw the potential of our great city and the importance of investing in its infrastructure. The team at TD have answered the call,” said Lawrence Zucker, President & CEO of Osmington, the head lessee of Union Station. “With a long history of supporting Toronto’s arts and culture community, TD is an ideal partner to bring our collective vision of Union to life, and serve its long overdue role as a Toronto destination.”
Visitors will also experience TD’s community support first-hand which could include unexpected pop-up events, dynamic music and arts programming and other community celebrations. Further details of this exciting sponsorship will be announced as they are finalized.
