The project wasn't awarded yet!  The consortium will still need to respond to the RFP, even if they are they only ones in the running.  The city might not be able to choose another bidder, but they would still have the option to not proceed if they don't like the proposal.

Quote:The King Victoria Transit Hub Partners Inc. (a consortium of three companies) successfully responded to the Region's Request for Qualifications call for building the new transit hub at King and Victoria Streets, and has qualified to participate in the Request for Proposal process.

You are right. I misread that.
A more pertinent question was what option were the potential bidders presented with? Low, Mid, or High density?
An RFQ is about proving the company can build something, ie prove their track record and experience. I would guess that since EllisDon is involved that they can show a track record for developing large projects but the RFP will likely show all 3 options if that is what the region wants for proposals. AFAIK they haven't picked one yet.
