Capitalist, take a look at property standards (and values) in the immediate area - Corktown etc as well as new businesses within walking distance of the station. Many of these streets which used to be slummy are vibrant with property owners who give more than a shit about their buildings and land. The growth is there. It's a slow process but it's happening. It's not exclusively thanks to the GO station but that transit link is definitely part of the equation. And that is just one station serving a niche commuter (inter-city) market. LRT is akin to dropping dozens of similar catalysts all over the city - only better because it serves a wider need.
