A TTC proposal, submitted to commissioners for their March 2016 meeting, suggested a number of route changes to serve the developing West Don Lands and Port Lands - The 72 PAPE route would be revised to restore its connection with Union Station and provide new service to Queen's Quay East - A new 121 FORT YORK-ESPLANADE route would fill in for the defunct 172 CHERRY STREET bus and provide new service to the Fort York area - Finally, the 514 CHERRY streetcar would serve Cherry Street to the Distillery district, as well as provide additional service on King Street and to Liberty Village

As the City of Toronto wrestled with a lack of funds to build more streetcar service into the eastern Waterfront, one proposal suggested running a line from Union Station along Queen's Quay East to a temporary loop at Parliament - The connection from Parliament to Cherry Street is complicated by the plan to fill in the Parliament Slip and extend Queen's Quay east along that fill - The Queen's Quay-Cherry intersection, pictured here, would be realigned, along with Cherry's intersection with Lake Shore Boulevard

By 2012, in this Waterfront Toronto plan, the Cherry alignment has been revised - No more service is planned to Unwin, and the final southern loop will be by the Ship Channel

"A Waterfront Toronto/TTC map shows the proposed "base network" of streetcar lines serving the east Waterfront and the Port Lands in 2021, as of 2008 - The Cherry streetcar connects to the King line via Parliament and Front, with additional routes serving Bremner Boulevard, Queen's Quay East, Commissioners and Unwin - Even then, the Cherry/King service was numbered 514, while a proposed Broadview route was numbered 524"
